Hello!

I'm pleased to announce version 1.2.0, the first stable release of branch
1.2 of SQLObject.


What is SQLObject
=================

SQLObject is an 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 supports a number of backends: MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite,
Firebird, Sybase, MSSQL and MaxDB (also known as SAPDB).

What's New
==========

Features & Interface
--------------------

* Strings are treated specially in Select to allow
  Select(['id, 'name'], where='value = 42'). Update allows a string in
  WHERE.

* ForeignKey('Table', refColumn='refcol_id') to allow ForeignKey to
  point to a non-id column; the referred column must be a unique integer
  column.

* delColumn now accepts a ForeignKey's name without 'ID'.

* Support for PostgreSQL 7.* is dropped. The minimal supported version of
  PostgreSQL is 8.1 now.

* Quoting rules changed for PostgreSQL: SQLObject uses E'' escape string
  if the string contains characters escaped with backslash.

* A bug caused by psycopg2 recently added a new boolean not callable
  autocommit attribute was fixed.

* sqlobject.__doc__ and main.__doc__ no longer contain version number.
  Use sqlobject.version or version_info.

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
