The CMF developer community and Zope Corporation are pleased to
announce the release of version 2.0.0-alpha of the Zope Content
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 Zope.org site. The CMF is
intended to be easily customizable, in terms of both the
types of content used and the policies and services it
