The Apache Software Foundation and The Apache HTTP Server Project are
pleased to announce the 3.1.2 Beta release mod_python.

Some feature highlights:

* Server-side sessions with memory or dbm-based storage and session
locking support.

* PSP - a fast flex-based scanner which allows embedding Python code
within HTML.

* Native cookie support, including support for automatic cryptographic
cookie signing and marshalling.

* Compatibility with Python 2.3, as well as many other enhancements.

Beta releases are NOT considered stable and may contain bugs.

This release is intended to solicit widespread testing of the code. We
strongly recommend that you try out your existing applications and
experiment with new features in a non-production environment using this
version and report any problems you may encounter so that they can be
addressed before the final release.

Preferred method of reporting problems is the mod_python user list
mod_python at modpython.org.
