I am pleased to announce the release of

   PloneCollectorNG 1.0 beta 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 beta 1

  - the complete UI for issues is now generic. No more needs to touch the 

    - UI: using fieldsets instead of <DIV class="group"> etc.

    - added a new member preference to turn email notifications on/off

    - lots of minor UI improvements and cleanup

    - completed migration script for CMFCollectorNG -> PloneCollectorNG

    - Upgrade maintenance option for changed collector schemas

    - Collector and Issue instance use now !BTreeFolder2 as base class
      (this might raise some upgrade problems with existing PCNG instances).

    - added 'pcng_overview' for an overview over all collector instances 
including some stats

    - added filters to search form


     If you upgrade from an earlier release of PCNG you should re-install 
the product
     using the Add/Remove products in the Plone setup.

    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
