aurora 20071006 bugfix-release   Sat, 06 Oct 2007 18:09:21 GMT

there were two more or less serious errors in the skeleton-files. in the template-system replace_unknown_vars was not correctly stored so that db-calls could fail. finally it's now possible to use a runner as a source in for-statements.
this release is recommended for everyone.

many little things...   Thu, 04 Oct 2007 18:14:58 GMT

this release adds autogenerated-m2m-tables, improved branch-rendering in templates, some new filters, better localization, a simple benchmark-function, code cleanup and the first usable version of the console-helper ( see aurora/scripts/readme.txt ). for details see aurora/changelog.txt as usual.
