Spyce 2.0 beta released

Some 217 commits into development, Spyce 2.0 is finally available for download. The main Spyce site has been updated with the new docs, examples, and demos.

Full changelog is here; highlights include

  new-style active tags 
    - docs
  OpenACS-like (Tiles-ish, for you JSP people) parent/child templating system
    - roughly the same speed as include.spyce, so using one parent template
      has about 1/2 the overhead as the old standard 
    - docs
  Active Handlers
    reusable components without the leaky abstraction of ASP.NET et al.
    - docs

The only major change since the prerelease was announced on this blog is that the class chunk token was changed from [[\\ to [[!. At least that's the only one I remember after spending the last 5 days wrestling with sourceforge's cgi-bin.
