SQLObject 0.5

I finally released SQLObject 0.5. See News or maybe some docs (if you haven't looked at SQLObject before).

After a brief look at SQLObject, it looks to be very useful. Just what I need for a project that I'm working on. Nice work :-)

Ian, SQLObject is looking really good, especially after these last few releases. I should really get moving and publish my DB-API abstraction interface and data mapping layers. Some parts are actually very similar to how SQLObject does things.

i.e., I have a set of abstract data types in Python that allow Python expressions to be translated into SQL like SQLObject does. However, I use typed SQL objects, so that they can offer richer interface. For example, SQLDate objects have properties that result in expressions to access month, day, year, start-of-month, start-of-year, etc. String objects allow subscripts, slicing, searching, etc.

So there seems to be many places where our projects would benefit from collaboration.
