Gadfly is a relational database system implemented in Python based on the SQL Structured Query Language. This is the GadflyB5 release - like a NG release only better :)
Note: Aaron Watters is not the contact for this project. The contact for this project is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gadfly requires python 2.1 or later for correct operation.
GadflyB5 is mostly the same old Gadfly, but:
updated to use new regular expression engine (regex -> re migration) performed by the fine folk at the Zope Corporation (http://www.zope.com/).
kjbuckets C extension module maintenance and updates (see the kjbuckets documentation for details)
cleanup and reorganisation of the gadfly modules, including:
migration to distutils-based installation
cleanup of SQL grammar marshalling
more strict (in places) unit/regression testing
general cleanup of the code itself
cleanup of networking code (note: gfclient argument list has changed!)
Please read CHANGES.txt for a complete list of changes since the last release. There is no ongoing support available for usage, unless someone volunteers. If you have found a bug, please submit an issue to the bug tracker at:
