The Five team is happy to announce the release of four Five stable releases 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 1.2 and 1.3 ---------------------- Five 1.2 and 1.3 are maintenance releases. They are basically equivalent except that Five 1.2 works with Zope 2.8/X3 3.0 (only) and 1.3 works with Zope 2.9/3.2 (only). Five 1.3 is included in Zope 2.9. This will be the last release of Five 1.2 I will make as the unofficial Five release manager. I don't expect the Zope 2.8 line to live on much longer either. From now on whoever is relying on Five 1.2 will have to make sure they backport and release fixes themselves. Managing more than four stable branches is just too much. 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 is 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. Changes in all releases ----------------------- * Allow multiple uses of the <class>/<content> directive. * Fix problem with WebDAV/HEAD requests due to new traversal order. * Backported the new traversal lookup order from Zope 2.10 (attribute, adapter, acquired attribute). Additional changes in Five 1.4.1 -------------------------------- * Made the provider directive acquisition wrap the resultant content provider so that simple providers that need security declarations (e.g. those that render pagetemplates) can work with the Zope 2 security machinery. * Added acquisition wrappers to viewlets before updating or rendering. Additional changes in Five 1.5 ------------------------------ * Moved the custom 'provider:' tales expression back into Five. Made the provider directive acquisition wrap the resultant content provider so that simple providers that need security declarations (e.g. those that render pagetemplates) can work with the Zope 2 security machinery. * Added Five.browser.pagetemplatefile.ViewPageTemplateFile as an alias to ZopeTwoPageTemplateFile and as a Zope 2 correspondence to zope.app.pagetemplate.ViewPageTemplateFile. * Added tests to make sure that views are not blocked by acquired attributes. * Changed the tests to reflect that defaultView no only works for views (and not on attributes). * The FiveSiteManager classes now work again, but are deprecated for the new zope.component support. There is also a method to migrate Five.site to zope.component. 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 )
