Announcing TurboGears 2.2.0!

That's right, we finally did it! It's up right now, and if you follow the directions on you'll get 2.2.0.

I'd like to take a minute to thank Alessandro Molina in particular. I did what support I could, but this release really belongs to him. Please pass along congratulations and thanks to him. And if there's bugs, I'll take the blame myself for not doing more to help.

The full changelog is below.

Important Commit Messages:

  • Fix template engine extension collision in tw2.core >= 2.1
  • Permit TGController subclasses to keep the decorations made on the parent class methods around
  • Support repoze.who v2
  • New auth configuration layer that doesn't require repoze.what anymore while still being compatible
  • Support validation dict using TW2 validators and make validation less dependant from FormEncode
  • Always prefer default renderer when multiple engines are registered for the same content_type
  • Fix empty documentation for some decorators
  • Remove url kwargs which were marked for removal in 2.2
  • Remove legacy renderers support
  • Disable AuthMetadataProvider when is None
  • Improved kajiki loader to solve some issues with py:extends
  • use .jinja extension for jinja templates by default
  • On Mako when using file loader templates where reloaded using the auto_reload_templates option, while when using dotted loader the mako.reloadfromdisk option was used. Merge the two options in auto_reload_templates as all the other templates engines use this one
  • __before__ and __after__ were renamed to _before and _after
  • Expose render call as a public api with render_template name
  • Create sqla module for sqlalchemy related things and add BalancedSession for master/slave load balancing
  • Change prefix for tw2 to make resources archiving work correctly

Hi, bro! I`m from Russia. I and my friends think that the home page ( should have cool design. If you can tell it to developers, tell please! Cause the home page is evrething for community!! Now the main page is bad.
Еhe greater community - the faster development and more new ideas in a simple code
