Hi everybody,

The summer is over, I moved house, it's time to look at a Grok 0.14 release.

Let's look at what we have now. We spun off a lot of stuff:

* grok.admin has been spun off into grokui.admin

* there's also grokcore.view, grokcore.security and grokcore.formlib. 
Why aren't these listed in Grok's CHANGES.txt, though? Has 
grokcore.formlib been finalized and merged into trunk?

We've also worked on some changes to the way Grok works:

* the way skins get set up has changed, from 'grok.Skin' to a directive 
you can set on any layer. We should also fix up the way we do REST this way.

* Soon JW and I hope to change a few things to the way grok.View picks 
up templates.

Finally, we started to make sure the tests on the trunk run with Python 
2.5. I think Grok 0.14 should mark the official release to support 
Python 2.5. Someone please test this scenario on windows!

Looks like we won't make it with out-of-the-box WSGI support in this 
release; a major wishlist item for this release. We need people to drive 
this process.

Any items that are in progress on the trunk right now and haven't been 
finished yet?

Shall we set a release date for Grok 0.14 later this month/early october?

This also ties into grokproject; recently I posted a list of issues with 
it and I hope we can release a new version of grokproject (and 
eggbasket, etc) that fixes some of these soon.
