So, today I am starting off with a new story series. The nwu development news.
Now what is this series about? Well, to make a long story short, it is about what has recently changed in nwu's codebase and how nwu is coming along.
Just a sidenote, the first story in this series is of course number 0, as real programmers start counting at 0. :-)

For those of you who are now wondering what nwu is or could be, I did write about nwu on this weblog already and the 'nwu - an introduction' post should give you a good idea of what it is.

So, what has changed recently? Basically I merged my changes back into trunk, which means that most of these things are going to be used now. This means that the application framework, the scheduler, the APT "Packages" file parser, support for gzip compression in both the SecureXMLRPC client and server and the brand-new RPC framework are either already being used, or are going to be used soon.

Except for the RPC framework, which would need to be adapted, and the application framework, which depends on nwu.common.config, all these pieces of code also work stand-alone and can be used in other python applications too.
