 Fnorb 0.7.1 (Python CORBA ORB)

Greetings python Friends!

Announcing a maintenance release (version 0.7.1) of 'Fnorb'
the Python CORBA ORB.

Here are the changes as described in the CHANGES file:-

1) Finished the renaming of 'id.py' to 'uuid.py' (ie. fixed the import
   statements that I missed last time ;^)

2) Memory-leak in the 'cdr' extension module fixed.

3) Import bug in DII.py fixed (thanks to Timothy Docker!).

4) Bug in reactor fixed so that recursive calls now work properly!

5) Some tweaks to the Win95/NT distribution to make it work a bit easier!

6) Two new utilities 'fnmkior' to construct IORs, and 'fnfeed' to parse IDL and
   store the definitions in an interface repository.

What is Fnorb?

Fnorb is a CORBA 2.0 ORB written in Python (with just the eensiest-{*filter*}siest
bit of C code for marshalling and parsing ;^). Python is a mature,
interpreted, object-oriented programming language with powerful high-level
datatypes that make it ideally suited as a scripting language for CORBA.
Best of all Python is free so check it out!

Like ILU from Xerox PARC, Fnorb gives the Python programmer access to the
wonderful world of CORBA. It supports all CORBA 2.0 datatypes (including
Any's) and provides a full implementation of IIOP.  Unlike ILU, Fnorb is
Python and CORBA/IDL specific which makes it simple, light-weight, and easy
to install and use.

Using Fnorb, you no longer have to use <insert your least favourite language
here - who said C++ ;^)> to write CORBA clients and servers - you can now
use, yep you guessed it, Python!  This makes Fnorb ideal for prototyping
complex CORBA architectures, for use as a scripting tool, and for building
test harnesses for all your CORBA development projects.

The Python language mapping used by Fnorb is based on the 'living' document
that is being prepared by members of the DO-SIG.  One goal of Fnorb is to
allow the Python community to experiment with the mapping before we attempt
to set it in stone via the OMG standardisation process.

Fnorb is being developed as part of the Hector project at the CRC for
Distributed Systems Technology based at the University of Queensland in
Brisbane, Australia.
