Subject [DRAFT] ANNOUNCE: Mod_python 3.1.0 alpha
Date Wed, 27 Aug 2003 21:22:07 GMT

I've got the files on minotaur, and have the changes ready to be checked
in for python-download.xml when mirrors are in sync (some time tomorrow).
The following is the announcement draft, please speak up if you see
anything wrong with it. Probably tomorrow night I'll be sending it to
mod_python user list and comp.lang.python:

The Apache Software Foundation and The Apache HTTP Server Project are
pleased to announce the 3.1.0 ALPHA release mod_python.

Some feature highlights:

* Server-side sessions with memory or dbm-based storage and session
locking support.

* PSP - a fast flex-based scanner which allows embedding Python code
within HTML.

* Native cookie support, including support for automatic cryptographic
cookie signing and marshalling.

* Compatibility with Python 2.3, as well as many other enhancements.

Alpha releases are NOT considered stable and do contain bugs. Some
functionality may change before the first beta release.

This release is intended to solicit widespread testing of the code. We
strongly recommend that you try out your existing applications and
experiment with new features in a non-production environment using this
version and report any problems you may encounter so that they can be
addressed before the final release.

Preferred method of reporting problems is the mod_python user list

Mod_python 3.1.0a is available for download from:
