StructuredTextNG is still under development. There aren't any formal releases. There may not be any until it is incorporated into Zope releases.

You can get the current version of StructuredTextNG using the Zope public CVS.

Here are instructions, which are specific to StructuredTextNG.

First, login to the public CVS server:

  cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.zope.org:/cvs-repository login    

when prompted for a password, enter anonymous.

Then checkout StructuredText:

  cvs -z7 -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.zope.org:/cvs-repository co -dStructuredText -rStructuredText-Dev Zope2/lib/python/StructuredText

This command differs a bit from the command for checking out Zope and a few of the options deserve some special mention:

co
an abreviation for checkout to make the command a tad shorter.
Zope2/lib/python/StructuredText
is used to checkout just StructuredText, rather than all of Zope.
-dStructuredText
Specifies the target directory. If this is omitted, then the files would be checked out into Zope2/lib/python/StructuredText
-rStructuredText-Dev
Checkout the StructuredText-Dev CVS branch. This is important. StructuredTextNG is only available on this branch. If you ommit this option, then you will only get the classic StructuredText implementation included with Zope.

Looks like StructuredTextNG has been quietly incorporated into released zope, at least as of 2.3.3. Yay! Did I miss an announcement ? If not I think there should be one. Didn't see it even in CHANGES.txt.

Would it be possible to provide StructuredTextNG under version 2.0 of the Zope Public License (or any other GPL-compatible license)? I would like to use the package extensively in a project of mine which is published under the GPL.

Actually, by sheer luck I've found that there is a version of StructuredTextNG under ZPL 2.0. Instead of the complicated checkout command above, you have to do:

     cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.zope.org:/cvs-repository co StandaloneSTX

If this is the "correct" current version, maybe this page should be updated?
