The latest PyPI release of TOSCA Parser for TOSCA Simple Profile in YAML is now available at

This release include the following enhancements:
· Support for nested imports – allows use of importing type definition within a type definition.

· A new test shell entry point – a new shell command, tosca-parser, is created for testing and validating TOSCA templates.
· Support for .csar file extension – now both .zip and .csar extensions are supported for a CSAR file
· Many small fixes –
o Remove decompressed temporary directory after processing CSAR file in in unit tests in Jenkin’s environment.
o Updated trove classifier for the project.
o The tosca-parser project is added to OpenStack global requirements to automatically update requirements.
o TOSCA definition update for admin and public endpoint, and PortSpec type per the latest spec.
o New missing validation and i18n fixes.
