Silva 1.1 beta 1 released

Infrae has just released Silva 1.1 beta 1.

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 provide 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 use.

Silva 1.1 beta 1 also should work with Silva News 1.0 and
SilvaExternalSources 0.8, both to be found on the Infrae website.


As of this release, Silva's download site has moved off zope.org to
the infrae.com website. Silva can be downloaded here:
