1.0a7 is a feature release which extends the "resource" feature required by a 
customer; now it is possible to override static resources as well as templates. 
  There are no backwards incompatibilities.  Tres also improved the 
"bfg_alchemy" Paster template.

The bfg "current" index at http://dist.repoze.org/bfg/current/simple has been 
updated with the new release and the docs rendering at 
http://docs.repoze.org/bfg has been updated.

Here's the full change log:

1.0a7 (2009-06-30)

- Add a ``reload_resources`` configuration file setting (aka the
   ``BFG_RELOAD_RESOURCES`` environment variable).  When this is set to
   true, the server never needs to be restarted when moving files
   between directory resource overrides (esp. for templates currently).

- Add a ``reload_all`` configuration file setting (aka the
   ``BFG_RELOAD_ALL`` environment variable) that implies both
   ``reload_resources`` and ``reload_templates``.

- The ``static`` helper view class now uses a ``PackageURLParser`` in
   order to allow for the overriding of static resources (CSS / logo
   files, etc) using the ``resource`` ZCML directive.  The
   ``PackageURLParser`` class was added to a (new) ``static`` module in
   BFG; it is a subclass of the ``StaticURLParser`` class in

- The ``repoze.bfg.templating.renderer_from_cache`` function now
   checks for the ``reload_resources`` setting; if it's true, it does
   not register a template renderer (it won't use the registry as a
   template renderer cache).

- Add ``pkg_resources`` to the glossary.

- Update the "Environment" docs to note the existence of
   ``reload_resources`` and ``reload_all``.

- Use a colon instead of a tab as the separator between package name
   and relpath to form the "spec" when register a ITemplateRenderer.

- Updated the ``bfg_alchemy`` paster template to include two views:
   the view on the root shows a list of links to records;  the view on
   a record shows the details for that object.

- Register a ``repoze.bfg.resource.OverrideProvider`` as a
   pkg_resources provider only for modules which are known to have
   overrides, instead of globally, when a <resource> directive is used
