Zope 3.1 will include a new feature in METAL, the Macro Expansion Tag Attribute Language used in page templates.
The implementation is largely complete, but some issues with it were uncovered in the past week that have caused some re-evaluation of the details. At this point, we discovered that sufficient documentation did not exist, so I'm working on a new revision of the METAL specification. This is currently in draft form on the ZPT wiki, along with a description of the macro extension feature. I plan to update the tests and finish the documentation sometime tomorrow. The feature is described here: http://www.zope.org/Wikis/DevSite/Projects/ZPT/MacroExtension The draft specification is here: http://www.zope.org/Wikis/DevSite/Projects/ZPT/MetalSpecification11 Comments are welcome, though I can only apologize for bringing this up to the list so late. (I'm afraid the non-availability of my own time prevented me from knowing about the issue until recently.) -Fred -- Fred L.
