It took some time, but the new routing code is finished.
- New wildcard syntax: /object/<id:int>
- Wildcard filtering/validation as part of the route syntax
- Support for custom wildcard filters
- Faster url() building
- Better error messages
- Much simpler code (I dropped CGI optimization)
- Lots of documentation
- (the old syntax still works)
You can read about it in the docs and test it in the "routing" branch. I am very exited about this feature and think it is important enough to trigger a new release. Please give it a try and test it with your applications. Any feedback may help to get this stable enough for a release.
