TurboGears 2 Beta 6 released

TurboGears 2.0 beta 6 comes with lots of fixes, and a total feature freeze in preparation for the first Release Candidate. From here on out to 2.0, we’ll only be doing bugfixes and improving our Docs. Speaking of Docs, Beta 6 comes on the heals of this last weekend’s doc sprint, so it already comes with new and improved documentation.

One thing which you should be aware of in Beta 6 is that after you install tg.devtools and quickstart a new application you have to do python setup.py develop on your quickstarted app because some of the dependencies for the app are not installed until that time. This allows you to remove optional dependencies from your application if you’re not using them.

Jorge Vargas has completely rewritten the Install doc. Anita has done great work on the Wiki 20 doc, which is providing an ever improving introduction to TG2.

Christoph Zwerschke has update the ToscaWidgets forms doc, Chris Perkins has documented the new RestController stuff which simplifies common Create, Read, Update, and Delete operations. And I created an overview of the TurboGears 2 stack. There are also new docs on the alternative template engines.

And of course there were also many, many smaller updates spread across the TG2 docs.

We are nowhere near where we want to be with the TG2 docs, but they are shaping up quite nicely. And we’re getting very close to the final release.

It’s been a great ride, and I’m already looking forward to some of the great things in store for 2.1.

  1. Great work Mark et.al.!
    Thanks a lot!
    Turbogears is going to be my favorite framework.

    (Small error in your post – links to the Wiki 2.0 doc and new RestController stuff have an “<br>” too much in the url)
