1.0a4

The third step on the way to Grok 1.0!

The Grok team is happy to announce the release of Grok 1.0a4. This is the fourth on the way to the release of Grok 1.0!

With Grok 1.0 we will deliver a stable, powerful, featureful framework for Python-based web development. Grok 1.0a4 is a preview of the 1.0 release and a continuation of the developments and testing in Grok 1.0a4.

Changes

Grok 1.0a4 has the following changes, mainly fixing bugs that only came apparent just after having released 1.0a3:

  • Pin grokcore.view to 1.7. This replaces an indirect dependency on zope.container with a safer dependency on zope.app.container.
  • Import zope.app.container interfaces from their actual definition not from a re-import.
  • JSON views now report a Content-type: text/json.

For installation instructions and much more on how to use Grok, see the Grok tutorial: http://grok.zope.org/doc/current/tutorial.html

Upgrading

It should not be needed to change your code to upgrade an existing project from 1.0a3 to 1.0a4.

For detailed upgrade notes on this, see http://grok.zope.org/project/upgrade-notes

If you want to use the paster support, please examine a project generated with the newest version of grokproject and update your project's buildout.cfg accordingly (and help us write better instructions!).

We hope to hear from you!
