spo0nman writes "The PythonOnPlanes release team has just published PythonOnPlanes-1.3.07 aka. 'the SuperSunday' release. For those in the know PythonOnPlanes is a rapid development framework for Python which uses commonly known design patterns like ActiveRecord, Association DataMapping, Front Controller and MVC. Our primary goal is to provide a structured framework that enables Python users at all levels to rapidly develop robust web applications, without any loss to flexibility.'Major highlights in the release include Active Scrum Manager 1, Sanity Preserver 3.13 and Lart 22.21. This is also the first release with the *PythonOnPlanes Live CD Installer* officially debuting on the x86 platform.'"

      After however times they've done this, the only way they could pull an april fools joke is by tricking people by not putting up any fake stories. Instead, post stories that sound fake but really aren't.

      Or... post serious stories, but have all the links go to the wrong articles. Maybe have them all go to the same site, so that it gets slashdotted extra severely.

      Maybe the rest of them aren't but this one's pretty subtle (so subtle that it doesn't yet have april fools tags), and clever. I, for one, am going to be upgrading my web space workflow with the Synergy 2.0a plugin. What snakes are on YOUR plane?

        Subtle like hitting you over the head with a bat instead of shooting you in the face?
      • by KDR_11k (778916)
        It's not that subtle but it's still plausible (except for the time between the movie and the claim that a completed project is available), Python is named after Monty Python and naming a Python project "Python on Planes" is not that unthinkable (I've seen sillier names for opensource projects) though it may be a bit silly since "on Planes" doesn't exactly sound like a rapid prototyping tool. The other tool names are just as plausible. Hell, Python comes with a module called pickle and an IDE named IDLE. Exa

      You speak the truth.

      I mean... gah! I know it's April fools (actually, it's been and gone in Australia), but my god how many piss poor jokes can one website take?

      I come to Slashdot to enjoy some geeky news and stories of interest, not be bombarded with poor joke after poor joke, all of which are retreads of the same poor jokes we've had year after damn year.
      • One or two of the better ones would have been fine, then perhaps a post linking to all the rest of them at once. Separate posts for each one is a little over the top.
        • The best-sounding April Fools story all day was from Ars Technica, about EMI announcing they will be ditching DRM. I thought that was rather well executed. Of course, it turned out to be true :x
      • This has been about the worst April Fools Day ever. Partly because its Sunday, but the jokes on Slashdot and Google this year are about the most unfunny, unprankable ones ever.

        by Anonymous Coward
        Yes, this year did suck. A bunch of boring stories that weren't half way credible, along with a digg-like slashdottit counter...

        But honestly, I really do miss the ponies. Say, is there some extension or clever css hack to bring the ponies back? (and, yes I would actually browse like that everyday! seriously!) Is the only way writing a greasemonkey script to replace images and css by hand? Because my javascript-fu isn't exactly great... Any other ways? Hell, I would PAY for a webite that could proxy slashdot

          The ponies joke was the ONLY funny one ever done on slashdot.

          It was over the top and hilarious, the rest of these jokes are just idiotic. I wish the editors would stop living as 14 year olds and realize the are not funny.
        • by BiggyP (466507)
          Not only is it possible to bring the OMGponify /. again, but it's very simple with the use of Slashdotter, the firefox extension.

          Read your slashdot the way it was meant to be read, in PINK!!! OMG Ponies! []

          I think it does some other slashdot related bits and pieces but hey, it's nothing more important than omgponies!

        I come to Slashdot nearly every day, and every Sunday is always a slow news day. At least there were stories this time around...

        You've got 364 days of that. Not enough?

      It's not redundant - it makes a reference to Snakes on a Plane, but also to Ruby on Rails. Yeah, I know this has been mentioned earlier in the discussion, so I suppose that makes this post redundant.

    What I really like about slashdot is that every year they manage to sneak in one subtle, carefully crafted April's Fool joke amid all of the reagular stories. Their prank blends in very well almost unnoticable, unless for the the prepared or critical reader. If you're not alert, you're made to believe something totally outrageous. Subtlety, careful avoidance to reference the actual date, and not ruining the joke by overdoing it: that is the real April Fool's spirit! I thank slashdot for honoring this tradation.

  • It's no where near as much fun when you know just about everything put out in all the media is a joke. It kind of sucks when you aren't in the mood for it. I kind of love the holiday. But the point is to actually fool some people. It's not going to happen when everything that comes out is BS.

    How long after this post will this be a real development framework?
  • I hate April Fool's day. Most of these weren't even momentarily funny.

            I hate to think this is what passes for wit among the "I'm scared of girls and I live in my Mom's basement crowd", but I fear that it does.

      While SQL on Rails was posted last year, it did this concept so much better. Python on Planes is ugly and wasn't taken far enough to be truly funny. Quite simply, SOR kicked POP's ass.
  • I'm so desperate to find an alternative to the badly documented chaos that is Ruby on Rails that I got excited....until I saw the omgponies.
  • I believed this one completely. I even tried the Web site and wondered how fucked up a Web framework project could be when none of the links - supposedly on a Web site built using their own product - worked! Shows you how much confidence I have in most of these projects...

    Why not?
