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/. _______________________________________________ Zope-Announce maillist - Zope-Announce@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce Zope-Announce for Announcements only - no discussions (Related lists - Users: http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope Developers: http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
