Announcement: TurboGears2 2.1.2 Released!



We are pleased to announce the latest release of TurboGears, 2.1.2!


This is a maintenance/bugfix release for the 2.1 series which also adds some new features. The full changelog is below.

Highlights for this release include the beginnings of our new book "TurboGears2 Web Applications: Batteries Included", Python 2.7 support, improved Jinja2 support, and quite a few bug fixes.
You can see the book as it stands right now at http://www.turbogears.org/book/ . We're working towards getting more details and more of the older documentation updated to go into the book.


We took longer to reach this release milestone than we had planned, but Real Life(tm) takes its toll on everybody during the summer months, it seems.

Even still, I can speak for the whole team when I say that we look forward to continuing to serve the community with quality code, and we look forward to your continued support!
