Yesterday I've released the one dot oh version of Five, the Zope 2 product that allows you to use Zope 3 technology in Zope 2, today.
This release has been the effort of a bunch of very smart developers from all over. I think it's great that in about a year's time, it turned from a few experiments of mine into a truly open source, multi-person project with huge contributions from many others. Check out the CREDITS.txt in the Five distribution to see a list of the people who contributed, and sorry if I forgot anyone!
What's more, Five 1.0 is also the version that is going to be folded into Zope 2.8. Zope 2.8 will be shipping with Five technology out of the box! It is my hope that Five will become an important drive for further Zope 2 evolution, throughout Zope 2.9 and onwards.
Meanwhile, Five development post-1.0 is going full-speed ahead. Philipp von Weitershausen has been refactoring the Five package structure on a branch, to make it more maintainable, and he, Lennart Regebro and Florent Guillaume have been working on a version of Five that enables one to use the Zope 3 i18n infrastructure inside Zope 2. This is something I'd like to use for Silva eventually.
