Five developers release Five 0.3
The Five team is happy to release Five 0.3. Five is a Zope 2 product that allows you to integrate Zope 3 technologies into Zope 2, today.
The most important feature of this release is undoubtedly the ability to use Zope 3 style add and edit forms. This is thanks to hard work by Lennart Regebro from Nuxeo. In addition, Lennart contributed the ability to use Zope 3 menus with Five. We've also worked on an improved compatibility with Zope 2 page templates, so it is more easy to reuse Zope 2-level macros with Five now. Dieter Maurer contributed essential code to accomplish this. Consult the CHANGES for more details.
Five right now allows you to use the following Zope 3 technologies in Zope 2:
- Zope 3 interfaces
- pages (views), including skins, layers and resources
- edit and add forms, based on schemas
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.
Infrae and Nuxeo have recently announced to cooperate on the development of Zope 3 technologies, and this should bring further good news for Five in the future!
