Myghty 0.94 Released

Myghty is an all-new Python Server Page (PSP) templating system designed
for large-scale, high availablity websites and applications.  Written and
optimized from the ground up to complement mod_python, as well as
standalone, CGI and application embedded environments, its conceptual
design and syntax is derived from HTML::Mason, the default web application
platform for the mod_perl world.  It is designed with both the migrating
Mason user and the original Python user in mind, supporting the full
featureset of Mason, including components, methods, inheritance,
autohandlers, dhandlers, caching, friendly exception handling, etc. as well
as enhancements including full Python whitespace support, component-
specific autoflush, cache and whitespace trim flags, thread-global code
sections, and a streamlined design taking full advantage of Python's unique
architectural features.  Compares favorably to other Python templating
solutions such as Cheetah and Spyce.

The component cache API is released as of version 0.94 and includes in-
memory and dbm-file based cache implementations, with support for new
implementations configurable at runtime.  The caching API allows fine-
grained caching control for component output as well as user defined data
structures, synchronized and shared among multiple threads, processes, or

Myghty has gained a small userbase in just its first two months which is
growing at a fast pace, receiving favorable reviews for its ease of use,
smooth operation, and great flexibility.
