Summary     : Declarative mapper for SQLAlchemy
Description :
Elixir is a declarative layer on top of SQLAlchemy. It is a fairly thin
wrapper, which provides the ability to define model objects following the
Active Record design pattern, and using a DSL syntax similar to that of the
Ruby on Rails ActiveRecord system.

Elixir does not intend to replace SQLAlchemy's core features, but instead
focuses on providing a simpler syntax for defining model objects when you do
not need the full expressiveness of SQLAlchemy's manual mapper definitions.

Update Information:

[CVE-2012-2146] The 'acts_as_encrypted' feature of Elixir does not correctly initialize the random seed for the Blowfish encryption algorithm, and is therefore insecure. This option adds a new optional AES mode which does not suffer this problem, plus a warning is now printed when insecure Blowfish encryption is used.
