Hello all,

We are pleased to announce the release of MetaPublisher 1.2.6.

MetaPublisher is a helpful tool to create complex forms. It permits you to
manage data without having to know how to program. Unique features include
the ability to easily extend what type of data can be manipulated through
"field types" as well as the storing of presets. Several field types and
basic presets are included in the package.

Changes Include: 

- 2 new methods for handling entries 
- getting rid of the warning messages that came up with Zope 2.4 
- a brand new preset "Messageboard" which is an easy to use Messageboard /

We have also included patches by Jens Quade which do the following: 

- check for illegal field ids in Configuration: "id", "title" and "name"
(now raise an error) 
- access to MP entries from outside MetaPublisher: 
- variable Acuisition path length allowed in 
- verify() doesn't require filename attribute 

NEW: Formulator Integration 

- support for Formulator form, show_form method, handle_form method 
Doesn't work for image/file uploads yet, at least not the version
generated by default. Especially deletion is not possible now. 

- Add Form 
Modification to Add Form to optionally pass new key to action called after
add. This enables an easy way to send mail or do other things upon entry

ListForm calls deleteEntry with it's own URL as action after deletion -
enables using other names than index_html for the add/edit/del page"
