I think we put together a very decent :doc:`application <GSoC/Application2008>` and this effort has luckily paid off so far. Now we are seeking students, who would like to work as part of the TurboGears GSoC 2008 effort, over the summer, on one of our :doc:`proposed projects <GSoC/Ideas2008>` or a an idea of their own. Accepted students receive a stipend of $ 4500 and can be sure to be part of a very exiting effort to make web-programming with Python even more fun than it already is today!
Spread the word! - On your blogs and in your user groups and in your lecture halls!
Detailed information about our program, mentors, project ideas and how to apply can be found on our TurboGears GSoC program page:

TurboGears maintainer Florent Aide has announced the latest release in the 1.0 series today. In his announcement on the TurboGears mailing list he remarks:
This release marks the last active version of the 1.0 branch. All new developments will now occur in the 1.1 branch.
This means that the 1.0 series now goes into "maintenance" mode, i.e. it will only receive important bug-fixes and security updates. Florent further explains:
The [yet unreleased] 1.1 branch will provide different defaults: Genshi and SQLAlchemy.
Development on the new 1.1 version has already started and the TurboGears developers are interested to hear from users what they expect from this version. Since development on TurboGears 2 - which will have an entirely new code base - is also already well underway, TurboGears 1.1 will be an interim release to ease the transition for TurboGears 1.0 users and to maintain backwards compatibility.
If you want to get involved in the development of TurboGears, either by :doc:`submitting code <Contributing>` or by helping out the project in other ways, now is a perfect time to do so!. Because this is an important time of transition for the project, Chris Zwerschke has posted a call for help on behalf of all project members, which lists a whole slew of different areas where you can make your mark. We are looking forward to hear from you!
As always, you can refer to the change log, for a full list of changes, fixes and contributors to this release.

The big news is that TurboGears 2 will maintain a TurboGears API, but be based on Pylons. Other big news is that TurboGears 1.1 beta should be released withing the next couple of weeks, and TurboGears 2.0 is already usable in trunk -- though it is still undergoing heavy development.
In a reaction to this announcement, Kevin Dangoor, founder of the TurboGears project says that he is exited that TurboGears is going back to its roots by providing a small layer to integrate other libraries and that "significant activity [...] is going on in the project right now".

Mark Ramm, owner of Compound Thinking and author of :doc:`the TurboGears book <1.0/TGBooks>` has announced an experimental TurboGears sprint organized by some Atlanta-area businesses. Mark says, "We're thinking that it would be a worthwhile experiment to try to reimplementing the core TurboGears API on top of Paste/Pylons and see what we get." There is a Google Group for the sprint and you can read the original announcement on the turbogears-trunk mailing list.
