We are pleased to announce the first tangible results of Firebird Butler Project - Saturnin SDK milestone 1 release (v0.2). Available in both saturnin-sdk GIT repository and PyPI (saturnin-sdk and saturnin-sdk-examples distributions).

Milestone 1 provides basic infrastructure for creating classic services and clients (for running in separate threads or processes). FBSP implementation is at the current specification level (only without direct support for SVC_ABILITIES). So far, the developer documentation is only in the form of very carefully commented source codes.

This release also includes a command-line tool for running and testing services, and two sample services with clients and tests (ECHO and ROMAN).
