there is very good  dolumentation to be found under:
(disregard anything about dtml and zclasses, this are dying concepts)

ZClasses are deprecated as of zope 2.10.0 beta 1 (see CHANGES.txt).

DTML is NOT deprecated and is NOT a dying concept.  ZPT and DTML are
used by different people for different reasons; both technologies have
their strengths and weaknesses, but both are viable, ongoing
components of Zope.


your right Dtml is not dying. its dead.

At the risk of feeding the troll...

One of the wonderful things (of which there are many!) about Zope, is that Zope provides a plethora of tools for building applications. Some people prefer certain tools over others. The choice of tool is less important than whether it meets the needs of the application.

If a Zope developer has a preference for one tool over another that is an internal choice, and I am sure that newcomers to Zope would be happy to hear the reasons for the tool selection. However, it is not helpful to disparage the other tools as newcomers to Zope may find them useful. Saying that certain features are 'dead' (which they are not in this particular instance) may scare newcomers away from that tool, and possibly away from Zope, which would not be helpful to the Zope community as a whole.

Zope is a fantastic web application development platform, and it is in our own best interests to ensure that newcomers are informed about all of the many features and solutions it offers.
