Photo (and Photo Folder) 1.2.0 has been released.  You can download it from
Zope.org at http://www.zope.org/Members/rbickers/Photo/, or from Source
Forge at http://sourceforge.net/projects/zopephoto/.

The most significant change from prior releases is the addition of
WebDAV/FTP support.  You can now transfer Photos to and from Zope using
WebDAV and FTP.

The documentation does not yet include this feature, so here's the short

New image files uploaded to a Photo Folder will be created as a Photo object
and will use the default settings and properties provided by the Photo
Folder.  With the timely release of Zope 2.4.2 (which fixes some WebDAV
problems), uploading new Photos will now work with Dreamweaver's WebDAV.  It
will also work with prior versions of Zope if you use FTP.

When you upload to an existing Photo via WebDAV/FTP, all displays are
regenerated using the current settings.  When you download a Photo, only the
original image is transferred.

There is also a change in the way Photo settings are stored which requires a
simple upgrade process.  See UPGRADE.txt for details.

Please report problems, requests and praise at Source Forge or via Zope.org

Thanks, and enjoy!
