CMF-1.5.0beta2 Released

Zope Corporation is pleased to announce the release of version 1.5.0beta2 of the Zope Content Management Framework (CMF). This release is intended for testing purposes only; we do not recommend deploying it to production servers. The final release of version 1.5.0 is expected by October 8th.

What is the CMF?

The Zope Content Management Framework provides a set of services and content objects useful for building highly dynamic, content-oriented portal sites. As packaged, the CMF generates a site much like the site. The CMF is intended to be easily customizable, in terms of both the types of content used and the policies and services it provides.
