The CMF developer community and Zope Corporation are pleased to
announce the release of version 2.0.0-alpha of the Zope Content Management
Framework (CMF). This release is intended for testing purposes only;
we do not recommend deploying it to production servers.

What's new in this release?

    This alpha represents a first preview of all the changes and
    features you will see in CMF version 2.0. Some of the highlights

    - GenericSetup-integration as the replacement for the CMFSetup
      technology started in the CMF 1.5-series

    - the use of Zope 3-style interfaces throughout, bridged back to
      Zope 2-interfaces where needed for backwards compatibility

    - widespread integration with Zope 3/Five technologies, and the
      folding-in of the previous CMFonFive addon-product

    - pluggable TypeInformation objects

    - new-style Actions

    ... and of course countless bug fixes and other improvements.

What is the CMF?

    The Zope Content Management Framework provides a set of
    services and content objects useful for building highly
    dynamic, content-oriented portal sites.  As packaged, the
    CMF generates a site much like the site.  The CMF is
    intended to be easily customizable, in terms of both the
    types of content used and the policies and services it
