Hello everyone,

on behalf of the `z3c.form` developers, I am proud to announce the next major
release of `z3c.form` 2.0.0. `z3c.form` is a flexible, rapid-development
form framework for Zope 3.

Thanks goes to everyone who helped out with the release!


For the curious and impatient ...
---------------------------------

While we have not yet updated the demos to the latest features, the demo still
works and provides a quick introduction. To run the demos do the following::

  $ svn co svn://svn.zope.org/repos/main/z3c.formdemo/tags/2.0.0 formdemo
  $ cd formdemo
  $ python bootstrap.py
  $ ./bin/buildout
  $ ./bin/demo fg

Now you can access the demo under:

  http://localhost:8080/


What's new
----------

`z3c.form` 2.0.0 provides many new features that were needed for our
projects. Here are the highlights.

- Several new, non-trivial widgets.

  * There is now a widget for sequence fields (`IList` and `ITuple` field)
    whose value types are simple fields (like `TextLine`, `Int`, ...). It uses
    simple sub-forms.

  * There is a text lines widget that provides a text area to enter one value
    per line. Again sequence fieds with simple value types are supported.

  * An initial implementation of an object widget was created. This makes
    developing forms much faster.

- Groups can now be nested.

- Besides vocabularies, sources are now supported.

- There is optional support for z3c.pt, a very fast implementation of TAL,
  TALES and METAL.

- Full backward-compatibility to Zope KGS 3.4.0 was kept to support a stable
  Zope 3 code base and the surrent Plone released.

Fore a complete list of changes, see:

As always, the code is 100% test covered to ensure the highest quality
possible.

Enjoy!
