2.2.0-alpha (2009-11-13)

  • moved the Zope dependency to version 2.12.0b3dev

  • Worklists: The catalog variable match setting can now be a formatted string (as before), but also a qualified TAL expression, meaning it has a prefix like “string:”, “python:”. (

  • exportimport: Support for instance creation guards and manager bypass added. (

  • Cleaned up / normalized imports:

    o Don’t import from Globals; instead, use real locations.

    o Make other imports use the actual source module, rather than an

    intermediate (e.g., prefer importing ‘ClassSecurityInfo’ from ‘AccessControl.SecurityInfo’ rather than from ‘AccessControl’).

    o Avoid relative imports, which will break in later versions of Python.

  • Strip trailing newlines in order to properly match with a msgid when translating transition descriptions.

  • Workflow UI: Remove ancient cruft to accommodate the proprietary (and long dead) base_cms product.

  • Worklists and Transitions: Add icon expression properties to worklist and transition actions and their GenericSetup profiles.

  • Fixed an import error (Products.PageTemplates.TALES is gone on Zope trunk). Because we require Zope >= 2.10, we don’t need a BBB conditional import.

2.1.2 (2008-09-13)

  • 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)

  • no changes


  • Testing: Derive test layers from ZopeLite layer if available.

  • exportimport: Scripts with invalid types imported after scripts with valid types will no longer place the valid script twice. Scripts can also now be specified with meta_types other than the hard-coded meta_types.

  • AfterTransitionEvent now passes along the new status of the object, just as StateChangeInfo passes on the new status to after-transition scripts. (

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.
