I'm pleased to announce the 0.7.1rc1 release 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, and
Firebird.  It also has newly added support for Sybase, MSSQL and MaxDB
(also known as SAPDB).
