Hi there,

After a long and slight desperate struggle (together with Philipp) to 
make the buildout work properly on Windows too, I've now released Grok 
0.10! Thanks go to Jim Fulton for the last bits of information required 
to make the buildout work.

It's on the cheeseshop:


It's time for a news section on the grok.zope.org homepage, by the way. 
Perhaps someone can take a look at it, perhaps move some of the stuff on 
to other pages, and add in a simple news section where we can do release 
announcements and the like.

This version of grok includes the admin interface, and a whole slew of 
other things.

I'm happy that we're making progress on the Windows support issues too. 
I certainly hope that doesn't mean that I or Philipp will become the 
main supporters of the Windows platform, though. We're looking for 
volunteers who want to help make sure it works on Windows.

It's also a major step on the way to doing proper release management for 
Grok. Main lesson learned from our latest release struggles: while we've 
made enormous progress, we aren't fully there yet with our egg-based 
story. Due to the Windows requirement, we now really feel the need to 
start pegging down version numbers for our release. We want to make 
using grok as easy as possible, which means that we the developers do 
the work in making it work on all supported platforms, including 
Windows. It needs to be easy. At the same time we don't want to give up 
flexibility for those people who want to use other versions of various 
dependencies. How to resolve this? Eventually I will write a longer mail 
about that.
