On behalf of the Zope Toolkit release team and the Zope community, I'm
happy to announce the first 1.0 alpha release of the Zope Toolkit.

You can read more about the release at
http://docs.zope.org/zopetoolkit/releases/overview-1.0a1.html. The
first ZTK release supports all of Python 2.4, 2.5 and 2.6.

To use the ZTK release, you can use:

This first release focuses on getting something out and defining the
actual technical outcome of a release. Currently the release outcome
is tailored to the needs of the three frameworks.

Now would be a good time for any direct users of the ZTK to speak up
and note anything that would make a ZTK release more useful to them.
In a first dev release created earlier last week we tried to create an
easy_install friendly index for the release. But there have been
questions about the exact contents of the such an index. Furthermore
it isn't clear if such an index would be useful at all to any
potential ZTK consumer. Since the three frameworks only use buildout
and have no use for any other means, we decided to drop the index from
the release procedure until it's usefulness and exact definition have
become clear.

The release team is currently discussing the further roadmap to a 1.0
final release and has some open discussion points to what remains to
be done until we can call it a final release and the process for
further releases and version upgrades. We post our meeting notes at
http://docs.zope.org/zopetoolkit/releaseteam/index.html. Feel free to
start discussing with us on this mailing list.

All the best,
