SPYCE - Python Server Pages
  v1.1.45 released on 13 Oct 2002.

SPYCE is a webserver plugin that supports simple and efficient
Python-based dynamic HTML scripting. Those who like Python and are
familiar with JSP, or PHP, or ASP, should have a look at this engine. It
allows one to generate dynamic HTML content just as easily, using Python
for the dynamic parts. Its modular design makes it very flexible and
extensible. It supports FastCGI, CGI and mod_python to plugin into Apache
and most other webservers. It can also be used as a command-line utility
for HTML pre-processing or as a web server proxy.

Dear mod_python users,

Spyce works very nicely under mod_python, and it's been a while since I
posted a release announcement to this list (in fact, since v1.1.22, about
two months ago). Here are some of the major highlights. (The full change
log is available at:

  - refactored the spyce module infrastructure
  - modules accept initialization arguments
  - new modules and improvements:
      toc - table of contents
      transform - output filters/transformations
      compress - dynamic compression
      error - error handling
      stdout - added push() and pop() methods; loaded implicitly
      and lots of others...
  - more accurate/specific runtime error reporting
  - added server-level configuration options
  - spyce now also supports a proxy server mode
  - added spyceDone exception to stop spyce processing
  - rpm improvements and new windows installer
  - compatibility with Python 1.5.2 and up
  - file globbing added to -O command-line option
  - site and documentation revamp
  - live examples on sourceforge
  - lots of bug fixes
  - performance improvements

If you use mod_python, and the last time you checked out Spyce was two
months ago, then please go take a second look. :)

Comments, suggestions and feature requests are welcome.
