The fourth step on the way to Grok 1.0!

The Grok team is happy to announce the release of Grok 1.0a4. This is
the fourth step in quick succession on the way to the release of Grok 1.0!

With Grok 1.0 we will deliver a stable, powerful, featureful framework
for Python-based web development. Grok 1.0a4 is a preview of the 1.0
release and a continuation of the developments and testing in Grok

Grok 1.0a4 has the following changes compared to Grok 1.0a4:

* Pin grokcore.view to 1.7. This replaces an indirect dependency on 
zope.container with a safer dependency on zope.app.container and, as it 
previously resulted in installation problems, is the main reason for 
this release.

* Import zope.app.container interfaces from their actual definition not 
from a re-import.

* JSON views now report a Content-type: text/json.

For installation instructions and much more on how to use Grok, see the
Grok tutorial: http://grok.zope.org/doc/current/tutorial.html

It should not be needed to change your code to upgrade an existing
project from 1.0a3 to 1.0a4.

For detailed upgrade notes on this, see

If you want to use the paster support, please examine a project
generated with the newest version of grokproject and update your
project's buildout.cfg accordingly (and help us write better instructions!).
We hope to hear from you!
