The CMF developer community and Zope Corporation are pleased to
announce the release of version 2.0.0-alpha of the Zope Content  
Framework (CMF). This release is intended for testing purposes only;
we do not recommend deploying it to production servers.

What's new in this release?

     This alpha represents a first preview of all the changes and
     features you will see in CMF version 2.0. Some of the highlights

     - GenericSetup-integration as the replacement for the CMFSetup
       technology started in the CMF 1.5-series

     - the use of Zope 3-style interfaces throughout, bridged back to
       Zope 2-interfaces where needed for backwards compatibility

     - widespread integration with Zope 3/Five technologies, and the
       folding-in of the previous CMFonFive addon-product

     - pluggable TypeInformation objects

     - new-style Actions

     ... and of course countless bug fixes and other improvements.

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
