I've made a long-overdue release of SQLObject 0.6, and a final bug-fix 
release for the 0.5 series.

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, and 
Firebird.  It also has newly added support for Sybase and MaxDB (also 
known as SAPDB).

What's New

In 0.5.3: some small bug fixes, and an important fix when iterating over 
selects in threaded environments.

In 0.6:

The "SQLObject" module has been renamed "sqlobject".

To fetch objects from the database, use MyClass.get(id) (instead of 
MyClass(id)).  To create/insert objects, use MyClass(col=value, ...) 
(instead of, ...)).

Better support for constraints.

Connections given using URLs, like 'mysql://user:pass@localhost/dbname'

Optional lazy updates -- SQL UPDATE executed only on demand.
