Five 0.3 released!

The Five team is happy to release Five 0.3. Five is a Zope 2 product
that allows you to integrate Zope 3 technologies into Zope 2,

The most important feature of this release is undoubtedly the ability
to use Zope 3 style add and edit forms. This is thanks to hard work by
Lennart Regebro from Nuxeo. In addition, Lennart contributed the
ability to use Zope 3 menus with Five. We've also worked on an
improved compatibility with Zope 2 page templates, so it is more easy
to reuse Zope 2-level macros with Five now. Dieter Maurer contributed
essential code to accomplish this. Consult the CHANGES for more details:


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

* Zope 3 interfaces

* adapters

* pages (views), including skins, layers and resources

* edit and add forms, based on schemas


We've tried to keep the Five experience as close to Zope 3 as
possible, so this means that what you learn while using Five should
also be applicable to Zope 3.

Five 0.3, even though it has an early version number, is being used in
production-grade projects, among others at Nuxeo and Infrae.

Infrae and Nuxeo have recently announced to cooperate on the
development of Zope 3 technologies:


and this should bring further good news for Five in the future!
