The Five team is happy to announce two bugfixes releases of Five
today, Five 1.2.1 and 1.3.2!
What is Five
Five is a Zope 2 product that allows you to integrate Zope 3
technologies into Zope 2, today. Among others, it allows you to use
Zope 3 interfaces, ZCML-based configuration, adapters, browser pages
(including skins, layers, and resources), automated add and edit forms
based on schemas, object events, as well as Zope 3-style i18n message
We've tried to keep the Five experience as close to Zope 3 as
possible, so this means that what you learn while using Five should
also be applicable to Zope 3, and viceversa.
More information about Five can be found on our website,
Changes in Five 1.2.1/1.3.2
* Five's traversing machinery now mimicks the ZPublisher correctly:
When no Zope 3-style view is found, first the object's original
``__bobo_traverse__`` is tried. If that does not exist, Traversable
resorts to attribute look-up.
* Unit tests that did i18n via Localizer would fail because the
request attribute that keeps Localizers list of preferred languages
did not exist.
For more information please consult the changes document,
Five 1.2.1 requires Zope 2.8 and can be downloaded at
Five 1.3.2 requires Zope 2.9 and can be downloaded at
Note that Five 1.3.2 will be included in Zope 2.9.2.
