I don't want to turn this into an Albatross advocacy session but I
couldn't agree with the above. Albatross is extremely simple to use but
remarkably powerful.

I've spent a while looking through a number of the available frameworks.
They are all pretty good but, to me, Albatross stood out.

I would just like to mention that the Albatross documentation is already
remarkably good, especially for an open source product where the docs
often lag the code (not that commercial docs are any better!). I got a
really good idea about what Albatross could do just by spending an
evening reading. The new docs look even better.

Anyway, enough advocacy.

Cheers, Matt
