Welcome to Zope.org

So, what's new about this site?

SQLSession 0.2.2 is available

Another release of SQLSession is out - this one, 0.2.2 adds only a small feature. When calling the Session object for the first time in a request, you can specify the session_id (rather than just having it automatically being sniffed from the cookie). This should allow this to work with 4am's SiteAccess product, to let you store the session id in the URL (expect a how-to on this, shortly).


FSSession 0.1.0

FSSession 0.1.0 is available at:

This is a module that stores Session information on the filesystem similar to Anthony Baxter's SQLSession.


ZDiscussions 0.2.0

I've just uploaded a new beta of ZDiscussions. This version adds a preview function, and it is much easier to customize on an instance-basis now.

ZDiscussions is a threaded discussion object and toolkit. It can be used stand-alone or it can be incorperated in other objects.


LDAPAdapter updated

There's (yet) another updated version of the LDAPAdapter available. This release fixes a number of bugs including a very stupid memory leak. Anyone who has been trying it out is strongly urged to upgrade...

Briefly, it's an acl_user folderish thing which authenticates against an LDAP service and adds the user's groups to the roles list. Handy for fine grained security based on ldap groups.

It's still in need of wide testing..feedback appreciated.


ZCatalog Keyword Index Howto

I released a short howto that explains how to use a ZCatalog Keyword Index to build a keyword list and search for documents based on keywords.

You can read it here.


Zope Chapter in New Python Book

In Manning Publications new book entitled "The Quick Python Book" by Daryl Harms and Kenneth McDonald, there is a complete section in the Advanced Topics area devoted to Zope, named "Using Zope". It is described to include Object publishing (What is object publishing?, Object traversal: from URLs to object calls, Object publishing details, etc.) and advanced Zope things like HTML generation with DocumentTemplate, Conditionals, sequences, and expressions, and Object persistence with BoboPOS. It's good to see the Python community support Zope, especially when introducing the language to new developers.

Spiro, A New Linux Distribution

Openshare.net has a new linux distribution called Spiro.

what makes this distribution interesting is that it has an "Application Server" install mode that sets up Zope!

I haven't tried it yet, but it looks interesting.


SQL Session 0.2.1 released.

SQL Session 0.2.1 is now available from http://www.zope.org/Members/anthony/software/SQLSession.

This version can be installed on a system with existing SQL Session objects, unlike version 0.2.0, which broke all existing Session objects.

If installing over an older version, you'll need to go to the management screen of any existing Session objects and hit the 'Change' button to upgrade them


SybaseDA v2.0.0b1 Released

We are proud to announce the arrival of the bouncing baby Sybase DA for Zope. This is a ground up rewrite of the code taking the time to understand some of the more creative differences. Please understand that this version corrects many bugs in prior releases that may cause your code to break. For more information, check: SybaseDA Product page.

Zope 2.1.0 beta 2 released

Zope 2.1.0 beta 2 has been released. This release includes fixes for issues found in beta 1, an updated load_site.py script and Martijn Pieters' patches to implement try/except/else and try/finally in DTML. Unless something major comes up, this will be the final beta before 2.1.0 final.

Spotlight On...

ISHOPHERE.COM is a website which helps consumers navigate shopping possibilities over the Internet. They recently used Zope to build all of their media conduits and interfaces for their ad production server. They also used Zope because they wanted the site enabled for management by non-technical account representatives.

"Zope allowed us to develop complex database applications faster and in a more stable manner than other middleware... as it is very object oriented and extremely powerful... we rely on Zope to make our business happen," says Theodore E. Patrick, Information Officer of ISHOPHERE.
