Silva 1.5 released

2 february 2006 -- Infrae has just released version 1.5 of the
Silva content management system.

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.
