Hot on the heels of the Zope X3 3.0.0b2 release, the Five team has 
released Five 0.1, the first public release of Five. Five is a Zope 2 
product that allows you to use Zope 3 technologies in Zope 2, today.

Five allows you to use the following Zope 3 technologies in Zope 2:

* Zope 3 interfaces

* adapters

* pages (views), including skins and layers

* ZCML, including things like Zope 2 security declarations from ZCML

It is possible to add Zope 3 style views to your own Zope 2 objects, or 
to existing ones, even normal Folders! For a more extensive list of Five 
features, see here:


Five 0.1 allows you to use Zope X3 3.0.0b2 technologies in a straight 
Zope 2.7 installation. See Five's INSTALL.txt for more information on 
how to set it up.
