The CMF developer community is hereby announcing the release of CMF
version 2.1.0-alpha2.

This second alpha release was cut to help release Plone 3.0-alpha. A lot
of bug fixes and features have made it into the CMF since release  
which has become somewhat obsolete as the basis for Plone 3.0-alpha.

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. The CMF provides the foundation for popular software
   packages such as Plone. It is intended to be easily customizable, in
   terms of both the types of content used and the policies and services
   it provides.

Where do I get it?

What has changed since the last release?

   New Features

     - WorkflowTool: Added the IConfigurableWorkflowTool interface.
       This change includes the new 'getDefaultChain' and  
       methods and an improved 'setChainForPortalTypes' method. The  
       handler now supports the 'remove' attribute for removing  

     - CMFCore.CachingPolicyManager: Implemented the old  
       API. Now objects other than CMF content or CMF templates can  
have their
       caching headers set by the caching policy manager with the same
       fine-grained control.

     - testing: Added test layers for setting up ZCML.

     - CMFDefault formlib: Added zope.formlib support.
       This includes some CMF specific base classes and an  
'EmailLine' field.

     - browser views: Added some zope.formlib based forms.

     - CMFDefault utils: Added 'checkEmailAddress' function.

     - Added CMFCore.FSRestMethod:  ReST equivalent of FSSTXMethod.

     - CMFCore.FSSTXMethod:  Modernized, added tests, made customization
       possible (now renders via ZPT by default, using 'main_template').

     - Portal: Added 'email_charset' property.

     - CMFDefault utils: Added 'makeEmail' function.

     - CMFDefault.Image and CMFDefault.File: Overridden index_html  
       add Cache Policy Manager-awareness and thus bring these  
       in line with CMFCore.FSFile and CMFCore.FSImage

   Bug Fixes

     - CMFCore.CachingPolicyManager: Prevent firing of caching policies
       for templates (DTML or ZPT) that are rendered in-line (without a
       separate request) while rendering the requested content item's  

     - CMFDefault RegistrationTool: Fixed too restrictive email  
       The new 'checkEmailAddress' function is now used.

     - Fixed test breakage induced by use of Z3 pagetemplates in Zope  

     - CMFDefault skins: Fixed encoding issues in welcome and  
reminder emails.
       'password_email' and 'registered_email' now encode their  
return value
       correctly, using 'email_charset' and the new 'makeEmail'  


     - The CMF now depends on Zope 2.10.1
