BFG 1.2 Final Released

We're proud to announce the latest major release of the repoze.bfg web application framework, version 1.2.

It may be installed via:

easy_install -i http://dist.repoze.org/bfg/1.2/simple repoze.bfg

The most important feature addition in 1.2 is an "imperative" configuration mode. This implies:

  • A repoze.bfg application can now be contained within a single Python file.

  • Developers are no longer required to use or understand ZCML to create a

    repoze.bfg application (ZCML is, however still supported).

See the "What's New in 1.2" document at http://docs.repoze.org/bfg/1.2/whatsnew-1.2.html for a detailed list of new features, changes, and backwards incompatibilities.

The docs at http://docs.repoze.org/bfg/1.2 have been updated. Additionally, a printed book which includes the documentation has been published (see http://bfg.repoze.org/book). The documentation has been extensively reworked and restructured for the purposes of printing the book.

The 1.2 version of BFG replaces 1.1 as the "current" version, which means that the index URL http://dist.repoze.org/bfg/current/simple and the documentation URL http://docs.repoze.org/bfg/current both now point at the 1.2 versions of things. The older 1.1 index is available via http://dist.repoze.org/bfg/1.1/simple and the older 1.1 docs are available via http://docs.repoze.org/bfg/1.1.
