I am very pleased to announce that version 0.5.0 of Elixir
is now available. As always, feedback is very welcome, preferably on Elixir
mailing list.

This is mostly a bug fixes release, but we have also had some pretty
important changes to the default values for options. Please look at
http://elixir.ematia.de/trac/wiki/Migrate04to05 for detailed
upgrade notes.

The full list of changes can be seen at:

What is Elixir?

Elixir is a declarative layer on top of the SQLAlchemy library. It is
a fairly thin wrapper, which provides the ability to create simple
Python classes that map directly to relational database tables (this
pattern is often referred to as the Active Record design pattern),
providing many of the benefits of traditional databases without losing
the convenience of Python objects.

Elixir is intended to replace the ActiveMapper SQLAlchemy extension,
and the TurboEntity project but does not intend to replace
SQLAlchemy's core features, and instead focuses on providing a simpler
syntax for defining model objects when you do not need the full
expressiveness of SQLAlchemy's manual mapper definitions.
