Version 0.6.1 is a bug fix release for 0.6. Most of the work on this release has been thanks to the contributions of Oleg Broytmann. Thanks Oleg!
A brief list of changes:
SQLObject is an Object-Relational Mapper. Basically it makes your database rows feel like (relatively) normal Python objects: Tables are classes, rows are instances, columns are attributes.
SQLObject both allows you to define your classes in Python, and SQLObject will create the tables on your behalf, or SQLObject may use database reflection to dynamically create a class given a table name. SQLObject portably supports a variety of database backends: MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Firebird, MaxDB/SAPDB, and SyBase.
SQLObject is being used in a variety of external projects: ezSqlObject, sqlos for Zope 3, and Subway (a Ruby on Rails clone), among others.
