Kitchen is a python module of small, useful snippets of code. It has functions to help with internationalizing applications, working with unicode and byte strings, iterators, and a whole bunch more.
0.2.2 is the first release that we’ve marked as a beta. The plan is to have a few weeks for people to try this out and report any bugs. If no bugs are reported we’ll release 1.0 soon afterwards. With that out the door, we’ll spend some time working on addon modules for a while — getting new features prototyped in separate submodules before merging them into a later kitchen 1.x (or 2.x) release.
