On the death march to a 1.0 release, I decided to release 0.9.8, the Ulrich Schnauss release. A fundamental base href change was made. All edit_forms will be impacted.
looking around I found a major problem that impacted plone. members couldnt edit their homepages !
Plone is gathering quite a bit of 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.
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
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?
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.
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.
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.
plone.org now runs the CVS version of Plone, and we need your help to discover any remaining bugs.
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.
talktech.org, a weekly bi-coastal talk this week will have guests, Paul Everitt and George A. Runyan Jr. Talking about Opensource, ZOPE, Plone and Enterprise adoption.
You are all invited to help squash bugs, implement new features, and meet the Plone Team. Tuesday, June 18 @ 8AM US/Central or 13:00:00 GMT. Hopefully we will continue throughout the day.

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.
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.
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.
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.
It was approximately 1 year ago, 8/12/01 when Alexander sent me an early screenshot of Plone in IE.
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!
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!
