Mephle 0.8.1
============

Mephle is a network-transparent, interface-independent, persistant
object platform written in Ruby.  It is designed to allow the focus of
development to be on desired functionality rather than the numerous
details such as communications protocols, file formats, and user
interface coding that usually take a large portion of development
time.  It is based on design principles put forth for the Unity
project (http://unity-project.sf.net).

Most notably, the focus of Mephle is on writing classes that provide
the desired functionality.  These classes are then instantiated and
manipulated directly by clients---whether these clients are scripts or
interactive users.  This is the main princple of the Unity project,
and Mephle is a robust approximation of this system.

Currently, Mephle provides a fully-functional CGI-based interface
engine, including an HTML widget-set and interface generators.  However,
there are no dependencies on the web; a 1.0 goal is to provide a Gtk+
interface, and possibly others.
