The CMF developer community is hereby announcing the release of CMF
version 2.1.0-alpha2.

This second alpha release was cut to help release Plone 3.0-alpha. A lot
of bug fixes and features have made it into the CMF since release 2.1.0-alpha,
which has become somewhat obsolete as the basis for Plone 3.0-alpha.

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. The CMF provides the foundation for popular software
  packages such as Plone. It is intended to be easily customizable, in
  terms of both the types of content used and the policies and services
  it provides.

What has changed since the last release?

  New Features

    - WorkflowTool: Added the IConfigurableWorkflowTool interface.
This change includes the new 'getDefaultChain' and 'listChainOverrides' methods and an improved 'setChainForPortalTypes' method. The import handler now supports the 'remove' attribute for removing overrides.

- CMFCore.CachingPolicyManager: Implemented the old OFS.Cache.CacheManager API. Now objects other than CMF content or CMF templates can have their
      caching headers set by the caching policy manager with the same
      fine-grained control.

    - testing: Added test layers for setting up ZCML.

    - CMFDefault formlib: Added zope.formlib support.
This includes some CMF specific base classes and an 'EmailLine' field.

    - browser views: Added some zope.formlib based forms.

    - CMFDefault utils: Added 'checkEmailAddress' function.

    - Added CMFCore.FSRestMethod:  ReST equivalent of FSSTXMethod.

    - CMFCore.FSSTXMethod:  Modernized, added tests, made customization
      possible (now renders via ZPT by default, using 'main_template').

    - Portal: Added 'email_charset' property.

    - CMFDefault utils: Added 'makeEmail' function.

- CMFDefault.Image and CMFDefault.File: Overridden index_html methods add Cache Policy Manager-awareness and thus bring these implementations
      in line with CMFCore.FSFile and CMFCore.FSImage

  Bug Fixes

    - CMFCore.CachingPolicyManager: Prevent firing of caching policies
      for templates (DTML or ZPT) that are rendered in-line (without a
separate request) while rendering the requested content item's view.

- CMFDefault RegistrationTool: Fixed too restrictive email checking.
      The new 'checkEmailAddress' function is now used.

- Fixed test breakage induced by use of Z3 pagetemplates in Zope 2.10+.

- CMFDefault skins: Fixed encoding issues in welcome and reminder emails. 'password_email' and 'registered_email' now encode their return value correctly, using 'email_charset' and the new 'makeEmail' function.


    - The CMF now depends on Zope 2.10.1
