Compared to the 1.0 release, Five 1.1 brings a few more Zope 3
features to the Zope 2 world, such as
* Zope 3-style i18n (including fallback to existing Zope 2 i18n
* Zope 3 to Zope 2 interface bridging (in addition to the already
supported Zope 2 to Zope 3 interface bridging),
* a couple more standard ZCML directives.
Five has also been changed internally - the code has been
restructured and the testing framework has been simplified to be
easier to maintain.

Five is a Zope 2 product that allows you to integrate Zope 3
technologies into Zope 2, today. It allows you to use the following
parts of the Zope 3 component architecture within Zope 2:
* Zope 3 interfaces
* pages (views), including skins, layers and resources
* edit and add forms, based on schemas
We've tried to keep the Five experience as close to Zope 3 as
possible, so this means that what you learn while using Five should
also be applicable to Zope 3.
