… which actually has got a limp, and as such is complete
harmless…

Today saw the first ever pre-release of the new
[Aranha](http://www.digital-scurf.org/software/aranha) codebase —
“The Ukranian hunting spider”. (Don’t pay too much attention to that
wiki it’s somewhat out of date)

Special thanks go to Breno Leitão for translating the release tagline
into pt_BR: <quote>A aranha siberiana tem pernas boas, tem bom dia,
pode capturar insetos, fazer teia, pegar insetos para a familia - Eu não
posso fazer nada</quote>

Aranha is a FastCGI responder based on the Lua programming language and
is under heavy development. The language has been extended and some
important features have been added including a class system, docstrings
on functions and tables, list comprehension and flexible string
formatting.

I encourage you to get a copy and have a good play. You can find a
tarball to download
[here](http://www.digital-scurf.org/files/aranha/uhs/aranha-0.0.0.tar.bz2)
so the only excuse is not knowing how to configure your webserver to
have a fastcgi responder.

<i>Update: Slight missing include file error :~~) dist tarball, config
etc updated. Sorry :~~)</i>
