Turbinado V0.6.5

Been a long silent few months (blog cliche, anyone?), but Turbinado is cranking along again. Bodo (http://www.naumann.cc/) is using Turbinado for a school project so we’ve been working together to advance Turbinado. So what’s new? Mostly touch ups:

HTTP 4k Support

The HTTP 3000 package seems to be slowing down while HTTP 4000 seems to be taking over.  Makes sense to update Turbinado to the latest version.  Done.

Better Forms Support

Added in support for multipart forms, so now you can upload files to Turbinado.  Note: there is currently no limit on the size of the upload, though.  (See Turbinado.Environment.Files for how to access uploaded files.)

Improved ORM

The PostgreSQL ORM is pretty sweet and now it’s even better.  Improved error handling, quoting of tables names, etc.  Next step is to build the MySQL ORM.


We’re moving again.  Note: turbinado-website is currently updated, but turbinado isn’t (it’ll be fixed by June 4th).

Would love your feedback on what could be done to improve Turbinado.  Although I made a point of running turbinado.org on Turbinado, it may be time to switch to a CMS that allows people to contribute to the project more easily.

  1. Hi!

    Would love your feedback on what could be done to improve >Turbinado.

    1. docs
    2. docs
    3. docs
    4. it would be nice to have some roadmap, mailing list maybe…i was (almost) sure that the project is dead and/or becoming obsolete due to happstack receiving fcgi support…

    I’m still playing with Django, but let’s hope Turbinado will become serious alternative one day.

  3. Agreed. I’ve promised docs forever. Need to actually generate them… soon… really. Look for a new website in the next week or two.
