Hello all,

We have made two new releases of Reahl:

Reahl 2.1.0 is prompted by user feedback. In this release a number of 
classes (and related methods) have been renamed, to names that are more 
familiar to new users. A View can now also be defined with the page it 
will render. This change allowed a reorganisation of the tutorial and 
simple examples that makes the learning curve smoother. Old names have 
been retained for backwards compatibility (for now).

Reahl 2.0.2 was also released, fixing a few minor bugs. This will be the 
release in the 2.0 series.

  * Features: http://www.reahl.org
  * Installation: 

Reahl is a web application framework for Python programmers.

With Reahl, programming is done purely in Python, using concepts
familiar from GUI programming - like reusable Widgets and Events.
There's no need for a programmer to know several different languages
(HTML, JavaScript, template languages, etc) or to keep up with the
tricks of these trades. The abstractions presented by Reahl relieve the
programmer from the burden of dealing with the annoying problems of the
web: security, accessibility, progressive enhancement (or graceful
degradation) and browser quirks.

Although a Reahl program benefits from having JavaScript available, it
functions in the absence of JavaScript too. Search engines can crawl a
Reahl program, and its pages can be bookmarked by browsers.
