Haml 1.7 has been released!
In addition to various bugfixes and plenty of new features, Haml 1.7 is
now only 1.8 times slower than ERB. This is down from 1.5, which was 3x
slower, and way down from 1.0, which was 8.5x slower. We’ve also
introduced a new syntax for Sass attributes (the more CSS-like “color:
#f00” can now be used in addition to the old “:color #f00”), helpers for
creating well-formatted HTML in helpers, and plenty of other stuff.
