Hi all, I created a special release of HiperDom 0.4.0 (versioned as 0.4.0-DC), with fixes and additional features. This release is ment for experimentation with new features added by Digital Creations, and we'd appreciate feedback on these. The README attached to this email lists all differences. You can download the release from: http://www.zope.org/Members/mj/HiperDom Note that all fixes to HiperDom problems have been checked into the HiperDom CVS tree, a future release of HiperDom will include these fixes. -- Martijn Pieters | Software Engineer mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] | Digital Creations http://www.digicool.com/ | Creators of Zope http://www.zope.org/ ---------------------------------------------
This is the Digital Creations' release of HiperDom 0.4.0. Differences with the Hiperlogica release are listed below. This release depends on Zope 2.2.5 for correct XHTML output of base and image tags. This release is ment for experimentation with new features added by Digital Creations. HiperDom is a new template system for Zope, based on XML and DOM. It depends on the PyXML library, version 0.6 or newer. Consult the HelpSys for info on using HiperDom Templates. The "official" HiperDom homepage is at http://www.zope.org/Members/lalo/HiperDom where you will also find the HiperDom Wiki (the "official" place for discussion, bug reporting and embrionary documentation). Discussion about the development of HiperDom takes place on the "HiperDom Wiki":http://dev.zope.org/Wikis/DevSite/Projects/HiperDom. Differences with the Hiperlogica 0.4.0 release: - The calling interface has been refactored; HiperDom templates now behave exactly like DTML Documents. This fixes the trailing slash problem in base tags inserted into XHTML documents. - Inclusion of non-callable objects (like Image objects) has been fixed. - Names can now also be paths, so you can include references to objects normally not in the acquisition path. Example:: <div hdom:text="images/header.gif" /> - XHTML output of empty elements will include an extra space before the slash to ensure compatibility with older browsers. - A new directive, 'call', allows calling of objects without including their return values. This is especially suitable for methods that manipulate the RESPONSE headers or have other side-effects. - A new directive, 'include', allows inclusion of other HiperDom templates into the DOM at render time. - The DataObject object is not included in this release. - Some non-relevant files have not been included (exemplo_pt.html and HiperDom.latte). Issues with this release can be listed on the "ImplementationIssues page":http://dev.zope.org/Wikis/DevSite/Projects/HiperDom/ImplementationIssues. Feedback is greatly appreciated!
