2.2.1 (2010-07-04)

  • Deal with deprecation warnings for Zope 2.13.

  • no changes from version 2.2.0-beta

2.2.0-beta (2009-12-06)

  • no changes from version 2.2.0-alpha

2.2.0-alpha (2009-11-13)

  • moved the Zope dependency to version 2.12.0b3dev

  • Worklists: The catalog variable match setting can now be a formatted string (as before), but also a qualified TAL expression, meaning it has a prefix like “string:”, “python:”. (

  • exportimport: Support for instance creation guards and manager bypass added. (

  • Cleaned up / normalized imports:

    o Don’t import from Globals; instead, use real locations.

    o Make other imports use the actual source module, rather than an

    intermediate (e.g., prefer importing ‘ClassSecurityInfo’ from ‘AccessControl.SecurityInfo’ rather than from ‘AccessControl’).

    o Avoid relative imports, which will break in later versions of Python.

  • Strip trailing newlines in order to properly match with a msgid when translating transition descriptions.

  • Workflow UI: Remove ancient cruft to accommodate the proprietary (and long dead) base_cms product.

  • Worklists and Transitions: Add icon expression properties to worklist and transition actions and their GenericSetup profiles.

  • Fixed an import error (Products.PageTemplates.TALES is gone on Zope trunk). Because we require Zope >= 2.10, we don’t need a BBB conditional import.

2.1.2 (2008-09-13)

  • test fixture: Fix failng tests with GenericSetup > 1.3 by explicitly loading GS’ meta.zcml during setup.

2.1.2-beta (2008-08-26)

  • completed devolution from monolithic CMF package into its component products that are distributed as eggs from PyPI.

2.1.1 (2008-01-06)

  • no changes


  • Testing: Derive test layers from ZopeLite layer if available.
  • exportimport: Scripts with invalid types imported after scripts with valid types will no longer place the valid script twice. Scripts can also now be specified with meta_types other than the hard-coded meta_types.
  • AfterTransitionEvent now passes along the new status of the object, just as StateChangeInfo passes on the new status to after-transition scripts. (

2.1.0 (2007-08-08)

  • Fixed all componentregistry.xml files to use plain object paths and strip and slashes. GenericSetup does only support registering objects which are in the site root.

2.1.0-beta2 (2007-07-12)

2.1.0-beta (2007-03-09)

  • moved the Zope dependency to version 2.10.1
  • Fixed test breakage induced by use of Z3 pagetemplates in Zope 2.10+.

  • testing: Added test layers for setting up ZCML.

2.1.0-alpha (2006-10-09)

  • skins: Changed encoding of translated portal_status_messages. Now getBrowserCharset is used to play nice with Five forms. Customized setRedirect and getMainGlobals scripts have to be updated.
  • Profiles: All profiles are now registered by ZCML.
  • ZClasses: Removed unmaintained support for ZClasses. Marked the ‘initializeBases*’ methods as deprecated.
  • Content: Added IFactory utilities for all content classes. They are now used by default instead of the old constructor methods.
