SQLAlchemy 0.5.0 Released

The first official release of the 0.5 series is now available. This version packs a huge amount of change since 0.4 including multiple paradigm shifts in usage as well as countless bugfixes and behavioral and speed improvements. Through a series of prereleases, 0.5 is already on production systems and has been extensively tested by dozens of users. With the first 0.5 release, 0.6 is underway as well and will be where Py3k support is targeted. SQLAlchemy 0.5 is available for download on the download page. A comprehensive migration document is at 05Migration.

There is at least one firebird-specific change:

  • Added support for returning values from inserts (2.0+ only), updates and deletes (2.1+ only).

NHibernate 2.0 Alpha is out!

It gives me great pleasure to announce that NHiberante 2.0 Alpha 1 was released last night and can be downloaded from this location.

We call this alpha, but many of us are using this in production, so we are really certain in its stability. The reason that this is an alpha is that we have made a lot of changes in the last nine months (since the last release), and we want to get more real world experience before we ship this. Recent estimates are of about 100,000 lines of code has changed since the last release.
