Southerly Breezes

Work on South has been going full steam ahead lately, with some good results.

Two major features that I've been wanting to implement for ages are now in SVN trunk, and due for imminent release with South 0.5. They are:

I'm very excited about these new features; they should make the next release of South one not to be missed. There's also other changes under the hood, as well, including a new, much more robust parser. Documentation for these features is up already, and the tutorial will be extended (given a second part) soon, in order to cover them - they're features we want everyone using, since they'll save you time, and, hopefully stress.

If you feel like testing the new features before the next release, just check out trunk and have a play. Your feedback is also more than welcome on our new South mailing list, which you should also have a look at.
