Saturnin (a Firebird Butler Platform for Python) version 0.8.0 has been released, along with packages with core services and SDK.
Saturnin can now be considered as early beta. There will be more additions, extensions and improvements before the 1.0 release, but the platform is almost feature-complete, and the functionality provided is considered stable and ready for testing. However, some backwards incompatible changes in future releases are still possible.
The firebird-base package is a set of Python 3 modules commonly used by Firebird Project in various development projects (for example the firebird-driver or Saturnin). However, these modules have general applicability outside the scope of development for Firebird.
