TurboGears 1.0.6 released

The TurboGears community is pleased to announced that TurboGears 1.0.6 has been released. This version is a maintenance release that fixes bugs & glitches found since the last two months.

We are really active at the moment working on the 1.1 branch which should enter beta tomorrow. The 1.1 release will be fully retro-compatible with the 1.0 branch but will propose important new things:

  • SQLAlchemy as the default ORM
  • Genshi has the default templating engine
  • A new test system that is forward compatible with branch 1.5 & 2.0 (this is an important step toward migrating old applications written in 1.0 to 2.0 without breaking everything in the process)
  • Drop the use of RuleDispatch and use Peak Rules instead (no more C compilation)
  • Enhanced mod_wsgi compatibility to avoid past hacks that we had to do to deploy on Apache

Once 1.1 is out has a stable version we will encourage all 1.x users to go with this new version and to update their unit tests by following the TestMigration procedure.

A big work is undergoing also in the 1.5 branch to bring you CherryPy 3.1 support and further move TG into the WSGI realm.

Enjoy this new release and give feed-back in our mailing list!

  1. can’t wait for that improved wsgi — I know there are ways to do it now but the trouble has kept me running tg in a screen instance and using apache http_proxy. Pretty lame.

    BTW I found it a little funny you listed all the upcoming 1.1 features (i.e. not yet available) in this post, which I would have guessed from the title would have been mostly about 1.0.6. So what about 1.0.6, worth upgrading?

  2. What you call ‘enhanced mod_wsgi compatibility’ actually isn’t and those changes would apply to any WSGI hosting mechanism. :-)

  3. Graham,

    Agreed it’s pretty much just a fix for TurboGears WSGI support. I think that Florent can be excused for putting it that way because mod_wsgi is the most common wsgi server that people want to use with non-root mount points for their turbogears apps. ;)

  4. Andy,

    Here’s the changelog:

    But there aren’t many new features in 1.0.6, just small tweeks, and a half dozen or so bugfixes.

    Graham: Yes you’re right. But we’re mostly working with mod_wsgi in head. That’s why I put it that way.

    Andy: 1.0.6 is really just that: a maintenance release to further stabilize the 1.0.x branch. Read the full changelog and decide if it is interesting to upgrade for your applications.

    If none of the fixes are interesting to your use case you can definitely wait for the 1.1 release. The 1.1 release on the opposite will really be a “must upgrade” release.
