I'm happy to say that Snakelets 1.38 is available.

Snakelets is a very simple-to-use Python web application server.
This project provides a built-in threaded web server (so you don't
need to set up Apache or another web server), Ypages (HTML+Python
language, similar to Java's JSPs) and Snakelets: code-centric page
request handlers (similar to Java's Servlets).
Snakelets is fully unicode compatible and it's possible to run it
from a CD (read-only mode).

It's released under the open-source MIT Software license.

You can download from
(go to the SF project site, and then the file section).

A selection of the changes:

- Documentation cleanups and improvements, more info on Apache config.
- now requires at least Python 2.3 to run
- added 'smart suffix finder'
- fixed cookie removal problem, templated error page, and other smaller issues
- static asset and url convenience stuff
- documented static-file serving API (to facilitate download pages etc)
- directory lister is now a (server-)plugin
- new plugin distr corresponding with this new version
- many cleanups in the html pages

To start, edit the vhost config file (see docs) and
then run the script, or the script
if you want to start it as a daemon (on Unix).
