I'm pleased to announce the 0.7.0 release of SQLObject. Thanks to Oleg Broytmann for his ongoing help on maintenance and to all the other helpful people on the mailing list.
SQLObject is a popular object-relational mapper. Your database tables are described as classes, and rows are instances of those classes. SQLObject is meant to be easy to use and quick to get started with. SQLObject is now being used in several projects: Subway, TurboGears, and Zope 3 (sqlos).
SQLObject supports a number of backends: MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Firebird, Sybase, and MAXDB/SAPDB.
What's New? -----------
A quick summary:
* More sophisticated inheritance support * Management command-line client sqlobject-admin * New way of managing connections and transaction (sqlhub) * A variety of joins (e.g., LEFT JOIN) supported * New SQL joins, with further filtering allowed * Public introspection interface (sqlmeta) * Better date support * New column types: BLOBCol and PickleCol * Bug fixes, small changes, etc.
