Archetypes 1.3.0 final is released. It's a framework for the development of new Content Types in Zope/CMF/Plone. It features Schema-driven automatic form generation, simple integration with rich content types, and a lower entry bar to the complex requirements Zope places on new content objects.

Thanks to all contributors!
We started a list of all the contributors, but it's impossible to give everyone a fair mention. So forgive us if you have to look at the HISTORY.txt file and CVS/SVN-logs.
But anyway, one person needs to be singled out: Christian 'Tiran' Heimes. He did a really amazing job to push Archetypes to this release.
A great thanks also to all submitters of bugreports and fixes. Testing is a very important aspect of a project like Archetypes, and it is at least as important as development.
If you find any bugs in this release and they are not already reported: Please submit them to the "bug-tracker":http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=75272&atid;=543430. If you can provide a patch too, this is double-plus good. ;)
