dynamic, content-oriented portal sites. As packaged, the

New Features in 1.3.1beta1
- Implemented PUT and GET support to CMFCalendar.Event for
editing via FTP/WebDAV (thanks to Sidnei da Silva).
Bug Fixes in 1.3.1beta1
- Fixed incorrect security declaration in File.py (Collector #91).
- Remove over-helpful default argument values in
'CMFDefault.DefaultDublinCoreImpl._editMetadata'. Now, if
called without a value for an argument, the method will not
change that value. Collector #10.
- Remove workaround in CMFCore.utils for recognizing links in
StructuredText: STX in CMF content should now recognize exactly
the same links as the underlying Zope. Note that we *do* still
provide a customized HTML class, to permit embedding images
without generating the "whole" page. Collector #6.
- Remove bizarre, shadowing import of CMFCore.utils as 'utils'
into package namespace of CMFDefault; instead, import specific
names from that package directly (thanks to Paul Winkler for
pointing out the incongruity).
- Fix (theoretical) bug in CMFCore.DirectoryView which allowed
non-registered directories to slip through (UI didn't exercise
- Merge Christian Theune's fix for funky default argument values on
CMFCalendar.Event's constructor and edit methods (collector #76).
- FSPageTemplates overwrote a user-generated 'Content-Type' header.
We now check to make sure a Content-Type header is not already set
before allowing a page template to set its own.
- Fixed bugs around 'addActionProvider' in ActionsTool (Collector
- Fixed race condition in lazy initialization of filesystem-based
skin methods; the bug led to odd name errors on 'context' for
FSPythonScripts (Collector #37).
- Removed crufty 'isDesktop' stuff from 'folder_factories' and
- Fixed HTML-invalidating call to 'filterCookie' in
- Fixed unclosed 'tr' element in ZPT version of 'folder_edit_form'
- Fixed CalendarTool to use portal_type and not Type to search for
events in the catalog (Collector #28, thanks to Heimo Laukkanen
for the report).
- Fixed a bug in CalendarTool where events were not showing on the
last day of the month.
