As Christmas draws closer, we are proud to announce the first Release Candidate for Plone. If we get positive feedback from this release and migrations are smooth - this will be 1.0!
The beta 3 release of Plone is out. A lot of bug fixes, internationalization updates, Xopus technology preview, and workflow has been made more robust. Plone developers to attend the Zope 3 Sprint in Rotterdam.

Geoff Davis cooked up mailing list activity stats. Also we havesurpassed 2300 cvs checkins we get something like 4k page viewsa day. I would imagine the PloneWindows installer is going to bevery popular.
Lalo and Sidnei, two absolutely phenomonial programmers have backported Z3 i18n services to Zope and in the process created their own 'drop-in' versions of ZPT!
We did a major API change. Previous work should be backwards compatible.Please help test and give us your feedback. Hopefully we can get a beta out by the end of this week!
It was approximately 1 year ago, 8/12/01 when Alexander sent me an early screenshot of Plone in IE.
Bug Day 3 was announced on short notice. We are going to clean out the collector, add some minor enhancements (possibly) and release a beta of Plone in the following days.
Since CMF 1.3 is released we made this release. This was a quick release that has some "guts lying on the table" but is important for people to give us their feedback. We have cleaned up lots of bugs. You only need CMF 1.3 tarball and Plone now. No more CVS chasing.
Plone is starting to be used internally by quite a few large corporations and government agencies. One of these agencies, Hawaii E-Government Initiative was kind enough to give back to the community - a internal video presentation.
In effort to release early, release often and speed up the march to Plone 1.0 official release, we have released the first alpha of 1.0. This has tons of changes. We do not have 0.9 (Bola release) migration scripts. Please do a clean install. Requires CMF1.3b2 and Zope2.5.1 or later.

This has got to be a new low for trying to scrape up news. After last nights recalculation of Plone CVS activity we have gone over 1000 commits. This means absolutely nothing - but its a fun number anyway.
plone.org now runs the CVS version of Plone, and we need your help to discover any remaining bugs.
Not quite 0.9.9, its 0.9.9.Closer. Sorry, but I couldn't end a good thing. We also have CMFExample, which is an example website that you can manage via Plone. Biggest changes - filesystem refactoring, usability fixes, move to 2 column layout.Please look to CVS if you want to help Plone development.
lalo 'daredevil' martin is attempting i18n branch at Plone CVS. If you want i18n. Help him. It is very very simple what you need to do. Its just *a lot* of work.
Almost there! We need to squash the rest of these bugs, address some usability issues, make a few CSS changes and we will be at 1.0.
When plone grows up. It should *know* what it is. Unlike ZOPE which suffers from multiple personalities. Plone should learn from this and not become feature laden. It should focus on one area and do that area *really* well. What should that area be?
CVS access is moved to sourceforge. Now people can keep in sync with what we are doing.As well as see the mess that I leave in the HEAD ;p
Plone is gathering quite a bitof momentum. the CVS is currently hosted on my co-located box. I want to get away from all adminstration and this seems like a good place.
