plone.app.versioningbehavior 1.1.4

Provides a behavior for using CMFEditions with dexterity content types

Latest Version: 1.2.3

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::


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


<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::


<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>

when the previous version doesn't have a blob and the working copy has one.
[buchi]

that do not have a Skip_z3c_blobfile modifier.

[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.
