This is the third public release of our ExternalFile 
<> product.
Why not simply use ExtFile 
<>? Because ExternalFile 
supports pointing to a file "in situ" like a symbolic link, rather than 
copying it into some central repository directory.

This may not seem like a big deal, until you consider that those files 
might be stored in a revision control system like CVS. ExternalFile 
gives you the ability to create a Zope object that points to a file in, 
for example, a CVS sandbox for its content.

This new release is compatible with CVSFile-0-7. It also features 
"workalike" capabilities. ExternalFile can behave like any of the 

    * DTMLDocument
    * DTMLMethod
    * Image

ExternalFile is usable by itself. It is also the base class for CVSFile
