plone.app.versioningbehavior 1.1.3

Provides a behavior for using CMFEditions with dexterity content types

Introduction
============

The ``IVersionable`` behavior is used for enabling the CMFEditions functionality
for dexterity contents. It adds a changeNote-field to the edit- and add-forms and
creates a new version when the content is edited, if enabled for the content type.

It's based on *Products.CMFEditions*. For listing the versions of an object use
CMFEdtions' view ``versions_history_form`` or the history viewlet (see default @@view).


Usage
-----

Just use the behavior ``plone.app.versioningbehavior.behaviors.IVersionable`` in
your dexterity content type.

In your *profiles/default/types/YOURTYPE.xml* add the behavior::

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <object name="example.conference.presenter" meta_type="Dexterity FTI"
       i18n:domain="example.conference" xmlns:i18n="http://xml.zope.org/namespaces/i18n">

     <!-- enabled behaviors -->
     <property name="behaviors">
         <element value="plone.app.versioningbehavior.behaviors.IVersionable" />
     </property>

    </object>


The IVersionable behavior just adds versioning support to your content type,
but it does not enable it.

You have to set the "versioning" option in the Plone types control panel
(/@@types-controlpanel) to either "Manual" or "Automatic" for activating
versioning.

If you want to automatically enable versioning for your custom content types
through generic setup you have to create a file "repositorytool.xml" in your
gs profile (e.g. "profiles/default") with the following content::

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <repositorytool>
        <policymap>
            <type name="MyType">
                <policy name="at_edit_autoversion"/>
                <policy name="version_on_revert"/>
            </type>
            <type name="AnotherType">
                <policy name="at_edit_autoversion"/>
                <policy name="version_on_revert"/>
            </type>
        </policymap>
    </repositorytool>

- Include *.rst files in the release. 1.1.2 was a brown bag release.
  [timo]


1.1.2 (2014-02-26)

  pickle due to an implementation detail in CPython's memory
  allocation routine (exposed in Python as the object ``id``).
  [malthe]

- Include grok when grok package is installed.
  This makes sure the ZCML for the `grok` directive is loaded.
  [lgraf]

  [buchi]


1.0b7 (2011-10-03)
------------------

* Fixed a bug in the CloneNamedFileBlobs modifier causing an AttributeError
  when the previous version doesn't have a blob and the working copy has one.
  [buchi]


1.0b6 (2011-09-25)
------------------

* Add missing dependency declaration on plone.namedfile[blobs].
  [davisagli]


1.0b5 (2011-09-01)
------------------

* Fixed setuphandler to not fail with older versions of Products.CMFEditions
  that do not have a Skip_z3c_blobfile modifier.
  [buchi]

  [buchi]


1.0b4 (2011-08-11)
------------------

* Added generic setup profile which installs and enables the modifier for
  cloning blobs and disables the Skip_z3c_blobfile modifier.
  [buchi]

* Added support for versioning blobs (NamedBlobFile, NamedBlobImage).
  [buchi]

1.0b3 (2011-03-01)
------------------

* Remove grok usage, tidy up and declare zope.app.container dependency.
  [elro]

* Only version the modified object, not its container on modification.
  [elro]

1.0b2 (2011-01-25)
------------------

* Changed the behavior so that the changeNote field is only
  rendered in the Add and Edit forms.
  [deo]

* Made sure to always try to catch the ArchivistUnregisteredError
  exception at create_version_on_save (this mimics the original
  handling from CMFEditions).
  [deo]


1.0b1 (2010-11-04)
------------------

* Renamed package to `plone.app.versioningbehavior`.
  [jbaumann]

* Load Products.CMFEditions before testing.
  [jbaumann]

* Added some more tests.
  [jbaumann]

* Renamed package to plone.versioningbehavior (see dexterity mailing list).
  [jbaumann]

* Re-enabled IObjectAddedEvent-Eventhandler. The pickling error was fixed in
  CMFEdition's trunk.
  [jbaumann]

* Renamed the behavior marker interface IVersionOnSave to IVersioningSupport
  because it depends on the "version" settings in the types control panel if
  a content is automatically versioning on saving or not. The marker interface
  should only indicate if the type could be versioned or not.
  [jbaumann]

* Added locales directory with own domain for local translations.
  [jbaumann]

* Updated README.txt, included doctests in long-description.
  [jbaumann]

* Updated tests: events and version creation are now tested properly.
  [jbaumann]

* Added helper method for getting the changenote from the request annotation.
  [jbaumann]

* Storing changenote in an annotation on the request between the field-adapter
  and the event handler which creates the version. That makes it possible to
  use different form and widget manager prefixes.
  [jbaumann]

* Added localization for the comment field.
  [jbaumann]

* Disabled the Added-Event because it's not working due to a pickling problem.
  [jbaumann]

* Added a form-field changeNote. It's content is used as comment for the
  created version.
  [jbaumann]

* Added a Event-Handler for creating a new version on save.
  [jbaumann]

* Implemented the behavior plone.behaviors.versioning.behaviors.IVersionable.
