PEAK Release 0.5 alpha 4
Copyright (C) 1996-2004 by Phillip J. Eby and Tyler C. Sarna. All rights reserved. This software may be used under the same terms as Zope or Python. THERE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND. Code quality varies between modules, from "beta" to "experimental pre-alpha". :)
PEAK is the "Python Enterprise Application Kit". If you develop "enterprise" applications with Python, or indeed almost any sort of application with Python, PEAK may help you do it faster, easier, on a larger scale, and with fewer defects than ever before. The key is component-based development, on a reliable infrastructure.
PEAK tools can be used with other "Python Enterprise" frameworks such as Zope, Twisted, and the Python DBAPI to construct web-based, GUI, or command-line applications, interacting with any kind of storage, or with no storage at all. Whatever the application type, PEAK can help you put it together.
Far too many to list even briefly here: see FEATURES.txt for a very high level overview.
Known Issues and Risks of this Version

PEAK includes early copies of Zope X3's
Documentation at present is limited, and scattered. The principal documentation is an API reference generated from the code's lengthy docstrings (which usually contain motivating examples for using that class, method, or function). The mailing list and its archives provide a wealth of information on actual usage scenarios, recommended approaches, etc. There is also the beginnings of a tutorial on using the component binding package.
