Webware for Python version 1.2 released on 08/16/16
- The main change in the Webware for Python 1.2 release is that it
requires at least Python version 2.6 or 2.7, while the Webware 1.1.x
releases still support Python 2.4 and 2.5. By using the more modern Python
features and idioms, the code has become a bit cleaner and leaner again,
and also a bit faster.
- Webware 1.2.x releases are still fully backward compatible and can
serve as a good starting point for a modernization of the framework.
Bringing the classic Webware API and plugin-system which predate Python 2
in line with modern Python paradigms and conventions will need to break
backward compatibility and to streamline the framework by removing some of
the older and lesser used plugins and features which cannot be maintained
any more. This and support for Python 3 is planned for later releases.
