CMFEditions

CMFEditions is the versioning component integrated into Plone (starting with Plone 3.0). For Plone 2.5 sites CMFEditions may be installed as Add-On product.

Project Description

In the eyes of a lot of users a major drawback of Plone was the missing "versioning" feature. This was especially true for intranet deployments and document management based on Plone.

Plone since Plone 3.0 has a consistent, core solution for simple versioning tasks. This is expected of modern CMS packages.

Goals at the project start were

  • Integrate into Plone as transparent as possible and by minimizing the impact for existing applications and Plone itself.
  • Work safely. If you make a mistake, you can go back to an earlier version.
  • Collaboration.

    Version comments and version history help you communicate to co-workers the high-level changes during a document's lifecycle.

  • Comparison.

    Easily see how a document has changed between versions.

  • Stable repository.

    Authoritative version information is stored in a solid, pluggable repository (default repository is Zope Version Control).

  • Archetypes friendly.

    Custom content types should just work, anticipating special needs such as relations.

  • Stable.

    Don't rely on too much machinery and infrastructure that isn't already being used.
