I am pleased to announce the release of version 1.1 (1.1.1) of the pyForum system, a message board system written in python using the web2py web framework.

Among the many changes and enhancements of the system we have:

- New authentication and authorization system, in addition of using Janrain (recommended method of authentication)
- Completely redesigned back end (code and database), using the latest "techniques" from the excellent (online) web2py book.
- Extremely streamlined installation, download the product, install it, run it and it'll generate all necessary tables, support files, administrative user and security provisions, no "manual stuff".

NOTES: Due to time constraints, I've been only able to test the system throughly using SQLite and MySQL, I am confident that it *might* work in other SQL databases, due to a pretty complex SQL query that I still need to port to the DAL, the system does not (yet) run on GAE, but it will, sooner than later.

Enjoy

Can you direct me to the complex SQL query that doesn't work on GAE? I'm curious how much work is required to help port this app over to GAE entirely, versus migrating my site over from GAE to EC2. Thanks!
