Tramline 0.5.1 Released

Publication date: 22.January.2007, 12:52

22 january 2007 – Infrae has just released version 0.5.1 of Tramline. This version has improved installation and configuration, an example of setting up Tramline with Zope3, and various bug fixes.

What is Tramline?

Tramline is an upload and download accelerator that plugs into Apache using mod_python. Its aim is to make downloading and uploading large media to an application server easy and fast, without overloading the application server with large amounts of binary data. Only a small configuration change in Apache is necessary to enable Tramline.

The application server remains in complete control over security, page and form rendering, and everything else. Minimal changes are necessary to any application to enable it to work with Tramline; in fact it’s just setting two response headers in a couple places in the code.

Changes in this version 

  • Easily installable using setuptools
  • Easier configuration through the Apache config files
  • Includes an example for setting up Tramline together with Zope 3
  • Various bugfixes. Thanks to Embyr Thomas for his multipart/form-data fix, and to Chad Maine (who was able to upload over 1000 files in a single POST to a Django app!).


Tramline 0.5.1 can be downloaded from: https://infrae.com/download/tramline.


We would like to thank the people at the University of Bedfordshire for making Tramline possible.
