Yesterday, Thomas rolled the 0.13 release of Storm, which can be downloaded from Launchpad. Storm is the object relational mapper for Python used by Launchpad and Landscape, so it is capable of supporting quite large scale applications. It is seven months since the last release, so there is a lot of improvements. Here are a few simple statistics: 0.12 0.13 Change Tarball size (KB) 117 155 38 Mainline revisions 213 262 49 Revisions in ancestry 552 875 323 So it is a fairly significant update by any of these metrics.
Using Storm with Django
I've been playing around with Django a bit for work recently, which has been interesting to see what choices they've made differently to Zope 3. There were a few things that surprised me: The ORM and database layer defaults to autocommit mode rather than using transactions. This seems like an odd choice given that all the major free databases support transactions these days. While autocommit might work fine when a web application is under light use, it is a recipe for problems at higher loads.
