Hi there,

I think it would be good if we published a list of Grok features to 
grok.zope.org. It also gives us a good opportunity to find things to 
write blog article about. So, here is a start:

* auto-escaping in templates to guard against XSS attacks. :)

* the ZODB, store plain Python objects.

* ZEO: transparent scale the ZODB over multiple machines into a cluster.

* catalog: index Python objects in various ways (field index, set index, 
fulltext index) and find them again efficiently.

* flexible object publishing: modify the way objects are published by 
traversers, etc.

* powerful, battle-tested template language built-in: ZPT

* extensible with other template languages (how's that megrok.genshi 
release coming along anyway, Lennart? :)

* at home in the egg-based world.

* XMLRPC support.

* JSON support.

* REST support.

* great extensibility and pluggability story thanks to the component 

* lively community

* caveman with a big club
