Products.CMFCore Changelog

2.1.2 (2008-09-13)

  • fiveactionstool: fix typo in a method name that isn’t even used in the CMF or Plone.
  • test fixture: Fix failng tests with GenericSetup > 1.3 by explicitly loading GS’ meta.zcml during setup.

2.1.2-beta (2008-08-26)

  • completed devolution from monolithic CMF package into its component products that are distributed as eggs from PyPI.

2.1.1 (2008-01-06)

2.1.1-beta (2007-12/29)

  • Testing: Derive test layers from ZopeLite layer if available.
  • Updated to the 0.3 release of five.localsitemanager.
  • Events: Fixed some handleContentishEvent issues. Moved _clearLocalRolesAfterClone code to separate handler that is triggered before indexing and also for folders. Made sure notifyModified is not called if objects are just moved.
  • PortalObject: Added setSite to getSiteManager for old instances. This fixes migrations from Plone 2.1 to 3.0.
  • FSImage: Supply class-level defaults for ‘alt’, ‘height’, and ‘width’, to avoid acquiring objects with the same names. (
  • Testing: Derive test layers from ZopeLite layer if available.
  • PortalObject: Fixed a bug in the site manager creation code, which would assign the __parent__ pointer to the Aq-wrapper and not the actual object.

2.1.0 (2007-08-08)

  • Fixed all componentregistry.xml files to use plain object paths and strip and slashes. GenericSetup does only support registering objects which are in the site root.
  • PortalFolder: Enabled ‘Components’ ZMI tab. This GenericSetup tab allows to inspect and edit component registrations.
  • First egg release. For changes up through this release, please see the overall “CMF changelog”,

2.1.0-beta2 (2007-07-12)

  • moved the Zope dependency to version 2.10.4
  • Remove antique usage of marker attributes in favor of interfaces, leaving BBB behind for places potentially affecting third-party code. (
  • Add POST-only protections to security critical methods.
  • exportimport.skins: Added the ability to remove whole skin selections using a GS profile. (
  • UndoTool: Fixed ‘listUndoableTransactionsFor’. The required ‘object’ argument is now respected. This doesn’t change the behavior as long as ‘object’ is the site root object.
  • TypesTool: Corrected method signature of all_meta_types to have an interface keyword argument, as per the underlying OFS.ObjectManager interface declaration.
  • SkinnableObjectManager: Changed the way skins are set up. Acquisition wrapping no longer triggers ‘setupCurrentSkin’. This is now done on publishing traversal after the BeforeTraverseEvent triggers ‘setSite’. This fix replaces a temporary hack introduced in 2.1.0-beta, making sure ISkinsTool is looked up after setting the site.
  • CMFBTreeFolder: CMFBTreeFolders could not be used as the toplevel /Members container. (
  • TypesTool: Pass ‘object’ through to TypeInformation objects’ ‘listActions’. (
  • Removed extraneous “Cache” tab from FS-based skin objects. (
  • WorkflowTool: Using the ‘(Default)’ keyword for a type’s workflow chain will now reset any custom workflow chains for the type. (
  • SkinsTool: Use the property API to get the member specific skin, because direct attribute access won’t work with PAS based membership. (
  • Allow customization from DirectoryViews to be redirected into alternate folders, and use manually-built clones. (

2.1.0-beta (2007-03-09)

  • moved the Zope dependency to verson 2.10.2
  • Tool lookup and registration is now done “the Zope 3 way” as utilities, see
  • DirectoryView: Added ‘registerDirectory’ ZCML directive. Using the old registerDirectory method in is now deprecated. See zcml.IRegisterDirectoryDirective for details.
  • DirectoryView: Added support for non-product packages. This introduces new registry keys. Old registry keys stored in persistent DirectoryView objects are updated on the fly. (
  • setup handlers: Improved properties handler. It now works with properties using a default_charset other than UTF-8.
  • MembershipTool: Fixed inconsistent behavior where member lookup would take all user folders up to the Zope root into account whereas member area creation would not.
  • MembershipTool: when using an object without a __nonzero__ but with a __len__ (ala CMFBTreeFolder) as a member folder, the createMemberArea method would believe there was no members folder if the folder was empty, and so would fail (change “not membersfolder” to “membersfolder is not None”) .
  • DynamicType: Fixed behaviour regarding default view. DynamicType was making it impossible to use a Zope3-style default view for CMF content types. (
  • utils: Marked ‘minimalpath’ and ‘expandpath’ as deprecated.
  • Merged patches from Martin Aspeli to enable generating events before and after DCWorkflow transitions, and in the ‘notify’ methods of the workflow tool (

2.1.0-alpha2 (2006-11-23)

  • moved the Zope dependency to version 2.10.1
  • Fixed test breakage induced by use of Z3 pagetemplates in Zope 2.10+.
  • browser views: Added some zope.formlib based forms.
  • testing: Added test layers for setting up ZCML.
  • WorkflowTool: Added the IConfigurableWorkflowTool interface. This change includes the new ‘getDefaultChain’ and ‘listChainOverrides’ methods and an improved ‘setChainForPortalTypes’ method. The import handler now supports the ‘remove’ attribute for removing overrides. (
  • CachingPolicyManager: Implemented the old OFS.Cache.CacheManager API. Now objects other than CMF content or CMF templates can have their caching headers set by the caching policy manager with the same fine-grained control. (
  • Added CMFCore.FSRestMethod: ReST equivalent of FSSTXMethod.
  • FSSTXMethod: Modernized, added tests, made customization possible (now renders via ZPT by default, using ‘main_template’).
  • CachingPolicyManager: Prevent firing of caching policies for templates (DTML or ZPT) that are rendered in-line (without a separate request) while rendering the requested content item’s view. (

2.1.0-alpha (2006-10-09)

  • skins: Changed encoding of translated portal_status_messages. Now getBrowserCharset is used to play nice with Five forms. Customized setRedirect and getMainGlobals scripts have to be updated.
  • Profiles: All profiles are now registered by ZCML.
  • ZClasses: Removed unmaintained support for ZClasses. Marked the ‘initializeBases*’ methods as deprecated.
  • Content: Added IFactory utilities for all content classes. They are now used by default instead of the old constructor methods.
  • Content: All content classes are now registered by ZCML. ContentInit is still used to register oldstyle constructors.
  • setup handlers: Removed support for CMF 1.5 CMFSetup profiles.
  • FactoryTypeInformation: Added support for Zope3 style factories. If the ‘product’ property of a type info instance is empty the ‘factory’ property is interpreted as an IFactory name.
  • ActionInformation: don’t use a fixed set of properties for ActionInformation. (
  • CatalogTool: Use current executable’s proxy roles, if any, in place of user’s roles when computing ‘allowedRolesAndUsers’ for a query. (
  • FSFile: Added registration for ‘txt’ extension.
  • CMFCatalogAware: Added ‘handleObjectEvent’ subscriber. This replaces the deprecated ‘manage_afterAdd’, ‘manage_afterClone’ and ‘manage_beforeDelete’ hooks.
