Silva 1.5b1 released
Publication date: 2.February.2006, 18:28
19 january 2006 – Infrae has just released version 1.5 beta of the Silva content management system.
This is a beta release for public testing. Please let us know about any problems!
Silva 1.5 is the first Silva release that really starts using Zope 3 technology in the core, and is the first step in a longer evolution. It does not have a lot of externally visible feature changes, but focuses on making Silva work with Zope 2.8 and Five 1.2.
Some of the changes:
- Silva now uses Zope 3 interfaces. SilvaLayout (to be released) does not have to create Zope 3 marker interfaces anymore.
- Silva now uses the Five/Zope 3 i18n architecture. PlacelessTranslationService is not in use anymore.
- Use Zope 2.8 style ZODB transactions.
- Some view code has been converted to be based on Zope 3 views.
- Some adapters have been converted to be true Zope 3 adapters.
See doc/developer_changes.txt in the Silva core package for more details about these changes. And of course a lot of bugs have been squashed: see HISTORY.txt in the package for complete details.
