    eggs =
  2. Starting on 1.0b2 s17.portlets no longer depends on s17.person. If your project depends on such package, you should add the person extra to your buildout.cfg or

    eggs =
        s17.portlets [person]

After updating the configuration you need to run ‘’bin/buildout’’, which will take care of updating your system.

Go to the ‘Site Setup’ page in a Plone site and click on the ‘Add-ons’ link.

Check the box next to s17.portlets and click the ‘Activate’ button.

  • Brazilian Portuguese and Spanish translations were updated. [hvelarde]
  • The User Profile portlet was completely refactored and will only work with users and not with s17.person objects as it doesn’t make sense. [hvelarde]
  • The Birthdays portlet was completely refactored. If s17.person is installed, it will use the birthday field on the content type to grab the upcoming birthdays using the Person catalog; otherwise, it will look for a user defined birthday field on the MemberData tool. [hvelarde]
  • The package s17.person is no longer a hard dependency, but an extra requirement. [hvelarde]
