Five 1.1 released!
Compared to the 1.0 release, Five 1.1 brings a few more Zope 3 features to the Zope 2 world, such as
- Zope 3-style i18n (including fallback to existing Zope 2 i18n machinery),
- Zope 3 to Zope 2 interface bridging (in addition to the already supported Zope 2 to Zope 3 interface bridging),
- a couple more standard ZCML directives.
Five has also been changed internally - the code has been restructured and the testing framework has been simplified to be easier to maintain.
For more information please consult the CHANGES document.

Five 1.1 will not be part of any Zope 2.x release. It is also the last release to support Zope 2.7. Five 1.2 will only work on Zope 2.8.
Five is a Zope 2 product that allows you to integrate Zope 3 technologies into Zope 2, today. It allows you to use the following parts of the Zope 3 component architecture within Zope 2:
- Zope 3 interfaces
- pages (views), including skins, layers and resources
- edit and add forms, based on schemas
We've tried to keep the Five experience as close to Zope 3 as possible, so this means that what you learn while using Five should also be applicable to Zope 3.

We hope you'll join our mailing list and let hear from yourself!
