My experience with TurboGears 1.0.6 today is quite smooth. Of course, we were having some hurdles before a year or so, but now the stability and the documentation of the project seems quite good, although I can't give a comparative view, as I have not used other frameworks much.

Genshi is taking over Kid as SQLAlchemy is taking over SQLObject. Today, anybody developing a serious application on TG would prefer TurboGears + SQLAlchemy + Genshi. In the coming version 1.1, these are the defaults. For a longer project, one could consider TurboGears 2.0, which is built over Pylons and promises a lot.
