Quixote is a framework for writing Web-based applications using
Python. Its goals are flexibility and high-performance, in that
order.

A new beta release of Quixote 2 available.  This version fixes the
PTL import hooks to work with Python 2.6.  To download the file,
see <http://quixote.ca/download.html>.

Summary of changes since v2.6
=============================

v2.7b2
------

Author: Neil Schemenauer 
Date:   Fri Jan 22 13:32:44 2010 -0600

    Use the StringIO module rather than cStringIO.
    
    cStringIO is gone in Python 3 and also does not handle unicode
    strings properly.

    By default, set Cache-Control in addition to the Expires header.
    
    The Expires header is sufficient for HTTP 1.0 but for HTTP 1.1 we
    must add a must-revalidate directive.  Clients and proxies are
    allowed to ignore Expires in certain cases and use stale pages (RFC
    2616 sections 13.1.5 and 14.9.4).

    Disable cimport module for Python >= 2.6.
    
    The current version of the cimport module does not support relative
    imports. Disable it for now.

    Don't use callable().

    Work around broken ihooks module in Python 2.6.
    
    Using the import hook is still the most convenient way of using PTL
    modules.

    Remove spurious kwargs from WidgetDict.__init__.

    Add options to sendmail so it can be used without a Quixote config.
    
    Also, remove broken encode() call since it can't handle Unicode
properly
    as implemented.

Date:   Sun May 31 19:09:53 2009 -0600

    Add SESSION_COOKIE_SECURE and SESSION_COOKIE_HTTPONLY.
    
    Based on a suggestion from Emmanuel Dreyfus , add
    the SESSION_COOKIE_SECURE and SESSION_COOKIE_HTTPONLY options.
    Setting them to true will cause the corresponding flag to be set
    on the session cookie.

    Check for other possible values of HTTPS.
    
    Currently HTTPRequest only checks whether the HTTPS environment
    variable has a value of 'on', but other possible positive values are
    '1' (as set by mod_wsgi) and 'yes'.

    Avoid infinite redirect when PATH_INFO is empty.
