This release includes many new features developed since the last major release. Urwid now supports 256 and 88 color terminals. A new MainLoop class has been introduced to tie together widgets, user input, screen display and an event loop. Twisted and GLib-based event loops are now supported directly. A new AttrMap class now allows mapping any attribute to any other attribute. Most of the code base has been cleaned up and now has better documentation and testing. Lots of other improvements are listed in the changelog.
