I'm happy to say that Snakelets 1.34 is available.

Snakelets is a very simple-to-use Python web application server.
This project provides a built-in threaded web server (so you don't
need to set up Apache or another web server), Ypages (HTML+Python
language, similar to Java's JSPs) and Snakelets: code-centric page
request handlers (similar to Java's Servlets).
Snakelets is fully unicode compatible and it's possible to run it
from a CD (read-only mode).

It's released under the open-source MIT Software license.

You can download from
(go to the SF project site, and then the file section).

Recent changes include:

- updated docs and examples
- fixes concerning loginpages and page encoding with redirected pages
- small Ypage parser/compiler bugfixes and improvements
- new plugin mechanism
- example plugins include a page cache and http compression
   (plugins are available separately).

To start, edit the vhost config file (see docs) and
then run the script, or the script
if you want to start it as a daemon (on Unix).
