itools is a Python library, it groups a number of packages into a single meta-package for easier development and deployment:
itools.catalog itools.http itools.uri itools.cms itools.i18n itools.vfs itools.csv itools.ical itools.web itools.datatypes itools.rss itools.workflow itools.gettext itools.schemas itools.xhtml itools.handlers itools.stl itools.xliff itools.html itools.tmx itools.xml
We have choosen to name this release Bolívar, it is our little homage to Simón Bolívar "El Libertador"  in the 223th anniversary of his birthday (July 24, 1783).
This release, itools 0.14.0, brings important API and performance improvements accross several sub-packages.
The most notably change is the new "itools.vfs" package (where "vfs" stands for Virtual File System). It replaces the "itools.resources" package. While functionally equivalent, "itools.vfs" offers a much more intuitive and rich API.
Our index and search engine, the "itools.catalog" package, sports a more compact file format. And performance for indexing, unindexing and searching has been improved by about a 2x factor.
The API and performance of other packages has been greatly improved, specially for "itools.handlers" and "itools.web". Also, the user interface of "itools.cms" has been simplified, most important the access control screens.
Last, we have raised the bar a little, since itools 0.14.0 the minimum required version of Python is 2.5.
