Zope Corporation is pleased to announce the release of version
1.5.0beta2 of the Zope Content Management Framework (CMF). This release
is intended for testing purposes only; we do not recommend deploying it
to production servers. The final release of version 1.5.0 is expected by
October 8th.

What is the CMF?

     The Zope Content Management Framework provides a set of
     services and content objects useful for building highly
     dynamic, content-oriented portal sites.  As packaged, the
     CMF generates a site much like the Zope.org site.  The CMF is
     intended to be easily customizable, in terms of both the
     types of content used and the policies and services it
