I’m pleased to announce the first alpha release of TurboGears 0.9. This release has been long in coming, but there’s a lot that’s new. This release includes “widgets” for working with forms easily, the Toolbox (including the CatWalk database model browser) set of browser-based development tools, internationalization, revamped and hugely improved error handling, and an identity framework for out-of-the-box authentication/authorization. There are many improvements to TurboGears in this release. Take a look at the changelog.

This release is essentially feature-complete. I’m calling it an alpha because there are still a number of bugs to correct and the documentation needs a lot of updates and enhancements. For people who have been running TurboGears out of svn, you now have a more stable base to work from.

Many thanks to the members of the TurboGears core team, and the 40+ people who adding things large and small to this release!
