The first release candidate of the Jinja2 templating engine was
released today. It's the successor of Jinja1 and breaks backwards
compatibility on the API level for good. To not break existing
applications Jinja2 has a separate package called "jinja2".

Changes to Jinja1:

  * dynamic inheritance
  * simplified API
  * easier debugging
  * better handling of undefined values
  * improved macro system
  * a lot faster
  * optional and more secure sandbox
  * improved for-loops which allow filtering now
  * Django-inspired extension system
  * optional line-based statements similar to Cheetah or Mako
  * optional automatic escaping
