Silva 1.5 beta 1 released
19 january 2005 – Infrae has just released version 1.5 beta of the Silva
content management system.
This is a beta release for public testing. Please let us know about any
Silva 1.5 is the first Silva release that really starts using Zope 3
technology in the core, and is the first step in a longer evolution. It
does not have a lot of externally visible feature changes, but focuses
on making Silva work with Zope 2.8 and Five 1.2.
Some of the changes:
* Silva now uses Zope 3 interfaces. SilvaLayout (to be released) does
not have to create Zope 3 marker interfaces anymore.
* Silva now uses the Five/Zope 3 i18n architecture.
PlacelessTranslationService is not in use anymore.
* Use Zope 2.8 style ZODB transactions.
* Some view code has been converted to be based on Zope 3 views.
* Some adapters have been converted to be true Zope 3 adapters.
See doc/developer_changes.txt in the Silva core package for more details
about these changes. And of course a lot of bugs have been squashed: see
HISTORY.txt in the package for complete details.
