The CMF developer community and Zope Corporation are pleased to
announce the release of version 2.0.0-beta of the Zope Content
Framework (CMF). This release is intended for testing purposes only;
we do not recommend deploying it to production servers. The CMF 2.0.0
release is planned for the end of March 2006.
What's new in this release?
This is the first beta for CMF 2.0.0, the latest feature
addition to countless bug fixes and minor improvements, this
features many noteworthy additions, such as:
- GenericSetup-integration as the replacement for the CMFSetup
technology started in the CMF 1.5-series
- the use of Zope 3-style interfaces throughout, bridged back to
Zope 2-interfaces where needed for backwards compatibility
- widespread integration with Zope 3/Five technologies, and the
folding-in of the previous CMFonFive addon-product
- pluggable TypeInformation objects
- new-style Actions
What is the CMF?
The Zope Content Management Framework provides a set of
services and content objects useful for building highly
dynamic, content-oriented portal sites. As packaged, the
CMF generates a site much like the Zope.org site. The CMF is
intended to be easily customizable, in terms of both the
types of content used and the policies and services it
