The Five team has released Five 0.2b. Five is a Zope 2 product that 
allows you to use Zope 3 technologies in Zope 2, today. This release is 
much improved compared to 0.1, and should work with the latest Zope X3 

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

A lot is new and improved in this release, including improved traversal 
system, bridging system for Zope 2 interfaces, Zope 3 events for Zope 2 
objects, and more. For a complete list of changes, see here:


With Five, 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 0.2b allows you to use Zope X3 technologies in a straight
Zope 2.7.2 installation. See Five's INSTALL.txt for more information on
how to set it up.
