I am pleased to announce the release of

   PloneCollectorNG 1.0 alpha 2 (PCNG)

PCNG is a bugtracking system for Plone. It is based on the concepts and
ideas of CMFCollector and CMFCollectorNG but it is a complete re-write.

One major highlight of this new version is the built-in TTW editor for
Archetypes schemas. This means you can edit the complete fields for your
issue (field types and widgets) through-the-web including the use of
schemats etc. Another goal of the new implementation was to focus on
security. So I dropped the old workflow and created a new one (which is
much simpler). The codebase is very small and generic and therefore very
much extensible for the future.

Changes since V 1.0 alpha 2:

    - misc usability improvements:

      - simple/full view for issues

      - extended search mask hidden by default

      - staff template improved

      - more compact issue view

      - overview page for all collector instances of a Plone site

    - misc UI/CSS improvements ("it looks nicer")

    - fixed several workflow related permission problems

    - migration script for CMFCollectorNG -> PloneCollectorNG added (not 
completed yet)

    - simplified creation of issues through script s(see pcng_add_issue.py)

    - improved i18n support

    ATTENTION TO USERS of Plone 2.0 beta 3:

      portal_workflow has been removed in Plone 2b3 from the action 
provider list.
      This is a *big problem* and will be fixed in the next Plone release.
      To fix this:

       - remove the "deleteActionProvider()" call in
         CMFPlone/setup/ConfigurationMethods.py line 175

       - *recreate* your Plone 2.0 site (if created *with* Plone 2.0 beta 3)

       - there is currently no support from my side to re-enable the
         portal_workflow as action provider for Plone sites created under 
Plone 2.0 beta 3
