Silva is an easy to use, open source, enterprise-class content
management system with a focus on structured content and XML. It comes
with a fully integrated browser-based WYWIWYG editor (Kupu), and has
extensive XML support, such as XSLT-based rendering of content. Silva
separates public website layout from its user interface, so that it is
easy to completely customize Silva to use the layout templates for
your website.

Silva 1.1 includes the following new features:

* XSLT support for rendering Silva objects. This adds more flexibility
   to the way Silva objects are presented, and when used also provides
   a nice performance boost. XSLT support can optionally be enabled on
   a per-object basis. XSLT support needs libxml2/libxslt, but Silva
   also continues to work if you do not have these installed.

* A new XML export/system that can also export and import asset data
   in a zip file.

* abbr and acronym support for both forms editor and Kupu.

* New parser for SilvaDocument forms-based editor, using a HTML subset
   instead of the old-style method using special characters. This
   should increase the performance of the parser and makes it easier to

Silva 1.1.1 is a bugfix release, and includes:

* new feature: an XSLT renderer that can render documents without the
   main title at the top. This can be useful in layout templates that
   already include this title.

* Silva 1.1.1 is Zope 2.7.3 compatible.

* A number of bugfixes.

Silva 1.1.1 works with Silva News 1.0 and SilvaExternalSources 0.9.1,
both to be found on the Infrae website.
