The Five team is happy to announce the release of three Five stable
releases today! Many thanks to Rocky Burt for making those releases!

What is Five

Five is a Zope 2 product that allows you to integrate Zope 3
technologies into Zope 2, today.  Among others, it allows you to use
Zope 3 interfaces, ZCML-based configuration, adapters, browser pages
(including skins, layers, and resources), automated add and edit forms
based on schemas, object events, as well as Zope 3-style i18n message

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, and viceversa.

More information about Five can be found on our website,


* browser: processInputs now decodes strings in lists and tuples.

* Made the __call__ method of ViewMixinForAttributes have the same
   signature as the original attribute.  This aids some pathological
   request parameter marshalling.

* Port code from Zope 3 making resource directories recursive.
   Thanks to Richard Waid.

* formlib: Removed redundant subpageform.pt and pageform.pt. Added
   missing error view configuration. (Five 1.4 and 1.5 only)

* Fixed #2168: Missing import (Five 1.5 only)

* site: Fixed small bug in FiveSiteManager. (issue #2198)
   (Five 1.5 only)
