This release contains a refactored IoC container supporting four formats (XMLConfig, PythonConfig/@Object, PyContainerConfig, and SpringJavaConfig); replacement of the term “component” with “object” in all APIs, classnames, etc.; and other bug fixes and API cleanup
This release contains improvements to reference documentation as well as integration with Spring’s new download site .
This release contains several upgrades and improvements, including scrubbing the APIs to better match PEP-0008.
Spring Python’s web page has been updated. It now uses the maven-generate material, with links to the official documents released earlier. The former trac site is still online and available through a link on the site. While the site may appear low on information, all the main articles of documentation are contained in the reference documents themselves.
Spring Python’s official documentation has been staged at http://springpython.webfactional.com/reference/html.
Spring Python was given as a “sneak peek” into Spring Extensions to the London Spring User’s Group at the end of a presentation on Spring.NET given by Russ Miles. If you follow that link to the Spring Python forums, there is another link to see the online video clip.
This is the release with Spring Python as an official Spring Extension. The primary task was quality, and the first step was to integrate all the unit tests with SpringSource’s build team and a continuous integration server. This has been accomplished and one sample of such a run can be found at http://build.springframework.org/browse/EXT-PYQUICK-19. A couple cosmetic issues were closed at the same time. Also, a new email distribution list has been created (mailto:email@example.com), hosted by SpringSource, and existing members have been migrated to it.
Russ Miles from Spring Source recently contacted me and invited Spring Python to become an official Spring Extension. Russ is in charge of the Spring Extensions project, a process they are setting up to incubate projects that can potentially become official parts of Spring Source’s software portfolio.
