On behalf of the TurboGears Team, I am pleased to announce that
TurboGears 1.5 is now available for download at


and the Python package index


Instructions for downloading and installing are at


Changelog and upgrade instructions are available via


Note that the well-known TurboGears 1 documentation has been cleaned up 
and migrated from MoinMoin to Sphinx.

TurboGears 1 is a web-framework that has been created by Kevin Dangoor 
in 2005. Version 1.5 is the latest version in the original TurboGears 1 
branch based on CherryPy, now featuring CherryPy 3. Simultaneously, we 
have also released bugfix versions 1.0.10 and 1.1.3 of the older 
branches running on CherryPy 2. The 1.0 branch is suitable for Python 
2.3 to 2.5, while the 1.1 and 1.5 branches support Python 2.4 to 2.7.

We recommend upgrading older TurboGears 1.x versions to 1.5 which is 
usually much easier than upgrading to 2.x.

New TurboGears projects should start with TurboGears 2 which is the 
current, actively maintained variant of the TurboGears web-framework, 
based on Pylons instead of CherryPy.

Have fun with TurboGears and let us know on the mailing list if there 
are any problems.
