Turbinado (http://www.turbinado.org) is a Rails-ish Model-View-Controller web serving framework for Haskell. It's in heavy development, is making excellent progress and is designed to make building websites in Haskell a joy. It’s been long enough since Turbinado V0.4 that I figured I’d skip V0.5 and go straight to announcing Turbinado V0.6. Lots of new excellent features: * By popular demand, support for CGI serving. Apparently some web hosts don’t support HTTP proxying, so some folks requested CGI support. * Statically compiled Layouts, Views, Controllers (to complement dynamic loading). * Support for “.format” in routes. If a request path is “/User/List.xml”, then the following View will be called: /App/Views/User/ListXml.hs. * Lower case paths. * Support for cookies (see here for examples). * Encrypted cookie sessions (see here to see how to use them). * Much easier installs using cabal-install. * Support for GHC 6.10. GHC 6.8 is no longer supported. Turbinado V0.7 will be all about: * Documentation. (seriously.) * User authentication. * Tutorials.
