The Five team is happy to announce the release of two Five bugfix
releases, 1.2.5 and 1.3.6, a Five 1.4 final release and another Five
1.5c beta release today.


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
catalogs.

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,
http://codespeak.net/z3/five/.


About Five 1.4 and 1.5
----------------------

Five 1.4 and 1.5 are feature releases.  They are basically equivalent
except that Five 1.4 works with Zope 2.9/3.2 (only) and 1.5 works with
Zope 2.10/3.3 (only). Five 1.5 will be included in Zope 2.10.

Most important features are:

* Added viewlet and content provider support.  A big thanks to Alec
  Mitchell and his helpers at the Archipelago sprint for making this
  possible.

* Add zope.formlib support.  Please see ``doc/formlib.txt`` for more
  information.  A big thanks to Jan-Wijbrand Kolman for this.

* Port zope.testbrowser to Zope 2.  You can now use
  Products.Five.testbrowser.Browser in functional tests.  Much thanks
  to Brian Sutherland.

* Add python-packages-as-zope-products support which basically allows
  for using any python package as a zope product without it having to
  live in Products/.  Much thanks to Rocky Burt for this.

Zope 2.10 and Five 1.5 are also a big milestone in the convergence of
Zope 2 and Zope 3, for it is no longer necessary to mark classes with
five:traversable and five:defaultViewable to enable Zope 3 view lookup
functionality.  A big thanks goes to Lennart Regebro and Michael
Kerrin for making this possible!


Changes in Five 1.2.5, 1.3.6, 1.4 (vs. 1.4c), 1.5c (vs. 1.5b)
-------------------------------------------------------------

* Fixed an issue where <browser:page> based views that didn't have
  template or attribute defined weren't getting BrowserView mixed in.

* Fixed an issue where new-style classes could not be used for
  view components with <browser:page>.

* Five.testbrowser does not swallow cookies anymore, based on patch by
  Daniel Nouri.

* Five.testbrowser capitalizes headers in the same way as the Zope2
  HTTPResponse. i.e. content-length -> Content-Length.


About the Zope 3 Base
---------------------

Five is part of the *Zope 3 Base* project, which aims to offer an
approachable area for developers of Zope 3 related software. More
about the Zope 3 base and its projects can be found on the project
website, http://codespeak.net/z3/.
