Silva 2.0 Released

Publication date: 23.May.2007, 17:01

23 may 2007 – Infrae has released version 2.0 of the Silva content management system. This architectural release targets Zope 2.10 and higher and takes advantage of much of the new technology. Infrae has striven to keep Silva 2.0 almost feature identical to Silva 1.6, while refactoring and rebuilding large parts of the system ‘under the hood’, using advances in Zope and Five infrastructure. This major reworking should especially help extension developers by expanding the set of tools available to them.

Changes in Silva 2.0

  • Major refactoring of Silva to work with Zope 2.10 and up.
  • The Silva Find extension has been included in the Silva core.

Many thanks to all who contributed. See HISTORY.txt in the Silva core package for detailed information about changes in Silva 2.0. For developer changes, see doc/developer_changes. Also see the changes in components such as Silva Metadata, External Sources, etc.
