TurboGears 126.96.36.199 Released
The TurboGears team with its release manager, Florent Aide, is pleased
to announce the release of TurboGears 188.8.131.52.
This is the latest in a series of releases from the 1.0 branch, which
has been the stable version of TurboGears for more than a year now.
With this release the 1.0 branch will enter maintenance mode, which
means, that the TurboGears 1 Team will concentrate on preparing a beta
release of the 1.1 branch and only critical bug-fixes will still be
released for 1.0. (In the meanwhile, other folks from the TurboGears
team are putting together a preview release of the upcoming TurboGears 2
version -- but this is a different story.)

features built within the TurboGears project. The goal of the project is
to ease development of modern web applications and support the full
