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 .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.
o Updated error messages for uniform formatting across the project
