    Zope Weekly News is a digest of some of the useful and interesting
    events which have occurred on the zope-announce mailing list and
    the Zope.org site.  It is published each Tuesday before noon(ish).

    Any opinions contained in the Zope Weekly News are those of the
    chronicler exclusively.


  * imeme.net is offering an exceptional, low-end Zope hosting
    package.  Not only do you get Zope (with some nice Products), but
    they throw in email (supported by the also exceptional WorldPilot
    package, or any IMAP client) and a mailing list (managed by
    MailMan), lagniappe.  Try free for two weeks.


  * ZopeBrasil has a new address.


  * Alexandre Ratti has translated the last two ZWN issues into
    French, and has posted them on the fledgling Zope-France site.
    Additional translations should appear here, as time permits.
    Thanks, Alexandre!


  * James Orbin <jorbin33@hotmail.com> would like to set up (or would
    like to participate in) a Zope users group for Ohio.  If you are
    interested, please write James, or see:


New Products

  * Software Product: ListMate Table Generator, by "heiko.stoermer"

      "ListMate is a ZClass based product that allows zope users to
      easily define, create and administer table structures.  Use it
      for intranet or internet presentation of all kinds of tabular
      data, such as delivery services, hardware lists, ip-adresses,
      contacts, addresses, ...  It contains a complete administrative
      toolset so that handling and maintenance are very easy."



  * Software Product: GenericUserFolder (GUF), by Stuart Bishop

    GUF has been revved up to 1.2.2.  This is strictly a bug-fix
    release, and deals with all reported bugs.  GUF is a tool for
    rolling your own UserFolder (the object which authenticates users
    of a Zope server).


  * Software Product: LDAP authentication adapter product, by "rossl"

    Version 0.98.3 has been released.  This release includes changes
    proposed by LDAPUserFolder users, and is being called
    "non-urgent".  If you intend to upgrade, please read the product
    page carefully.  This product makes it possible to authenticate
    Zope users using an external LDAP database.


  * Software Product: Wide String support for ZPublisher, by "htrd"

    The wstring package has been updated to v0.2.  This package is
    actually a set of patches to Zope to make it support wide strings.
    This update works with Zope 2.1.6.


Zope.org items

  * How-To: Postmortem Debugging In Zope, by Chris McDonough

    This How-To provides a twist on Michel Pelletier's The Debugger Is
    Your Friend document.  Using the postmortem feature of the pdb,
    you can examine the state of your server at the point where the
    last exception occurred.  This can be very handy when you don't
    know why an exception is being thrown.


  * Tip: Zope and regular content via ProxyPass, by "bfordham"

    This tip describes how to serve the root of a site from a Zope
    server, but serve specific portions of the site via Apache.


  * News Item: New Zope.org feature: Author feedback, by "MikeP"

    Now you can send feedback to the author of any content on
    Zope.org. There is a link to this feature at the bottom of each
    appropriate page.
