<a name="NewFeatures"></a><h2>New Features</h2>
  <li>Added support for SQLite to MiddleKit.</li>

<a name="Improvements"></a><h2>Improvements and Refinements</h2>
  <li>SQL Server support in MiddleKit now done via pyodbc, because mxODBC is
  a commercial product, while pyodbc is free and open source. Tested with
  SQL Server 2008.</li>

<a name="MinorChanges"></a><h2>Minor API Changes</h2>
  <li>We are now only using new-style classes.</li>

<a name="Deprecations"></a><h2>Deprecations</h2>
  <li>The <code>_get</code> and <code>_set</code> methods of
  <code>MiddleObject</code> have been deprecated in favor of
  <code>valueForKey</code> and <code>setValueForKey</code>.</li>
  <li>MiddleKit now does not support <code>mxDateTime</code> types any more,
  only the native datetime types. However, if python-dateutil is not installed,
  Webware will still use <code>mxDateTime</code> internally for string parsing
  (but the results will be <code>datetime</code> anyway). This makes the whole
  datetime handling much clearer and easier maintainable.</li>
