Routing Overhaul

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.
