 I have uploaded a tarball for the 0.9.2 release of the PTK; it
 can be found at:  http://www.zope.org/Products/PTK.

 * ZopePTK-0.9.2-src.tar.gz: Wizard and DemoPortal products
   are *only* available as export files.  Note that *many* changes
   are available only in the updated DemoPortal product.

 Please see the "Install notes":/Products/PTK/install.


 0.9.2 (2000/11/15)

  * Removed antique UML from snapshot tarball.

  * Cleaned up PortalFolder's implementation of the "metatypes"
    protocol required by ObjectManager (working on copy/paste/import
    issues).  Tracker #'s 116, 130, 131, 133.  (Note that some
    problems still remain, buried in the guts of Zope's paste
    machinery and acquisition/security interactions).

  * Restored content migration code (for pre-0.8 content).
    Tracker #129.

  * Added "expiration filter" to catalog searching.  Tracker

  * Corrected interface breakage caused by changes to DublinCore
    implementation.  Tracker #'s 109, 114, 115, 119, 122, 126.

  * Implemented "browser sniff" in the 'css_aware' stylesheet
    code;  NS4 should get styles inline, while less brain-damaged
    browsers continue to get '<link href="...">' version.
    Tracker #124.

  * Added one-pixel, transparent 'spacer.gif' to all interfaces;
    may fix some "broken pipe" Medusa tracebacks.  Tracker #128.

 0.9.1 (unreleased)

  * New "Software Engineering" interface (soon to be the
    basis for a fishbowl/dogfood site).

  * Split DublinCore into three interfaces:

     - DublinCore, for external queries

     - CataloguableDublinCore (returns dates for better searching)

     - UpdatableDublinCore

    Added indexes/metadata to catalog for these fields.

  * Suppressed non-content (e.g., DTMLMethods) in folder_contents

  * Cleaned up some of PortalFolder's interface warts, and
    its registration as an addable object.

 Please direct questions to the Zope-PTK list (zope-ptk@zope.org),
 and submit bug reports (patches would be great!) and feature
 requests to the PTK tracker (http://www.zope.org/Products/PTK/Tracker).
