Connexions is pleased to announce the initial release of FSDumpTool.

What is FSDumpTool?

Inspired by Tres Seaver's FSDump, FSDumpTool is a CMF tool for exporting 
and importing content between the filesystem and the ZODB.

How does it differ from FSDump?

- It's bidirectional: FSDumpTool supports both exporting *to* and 
importing *from* the filesystem.

- FSDumpTool is designed specifically for CMF content objects.  It 
allows you to configure "dump" parameters on a per content-type basis.

- Easily extensible through pluggable "Dumpers" to handle various 
metadata properties (currently supports DublinCore.  Help wanted writing 
Dumpers for workflow state, local roles, etc.)

Where to find it?

FSDumpTool development is sponsored by the Connexions Project 
(http://cnx.rice.edu) and may be downloaded here:


CVS access is available through the collective on SourceForge:

"The programmer, like the poet, works only slightly removed from pure
  thought-stuff.  He builds his castles in the air, from air, creating
  by exertion of the imagination.  Few media of creation are so
  flexible, so easy to polish and rework, so readily capable of
  realizing grand conceptual structures."
