This is a Content Management System built on Python & itools, among other features ikaaro provides:
This is the first release of ikaaro as a separate package (before it was distributed as a sub-package of the "itools"  library).
From a functional and visual point of view, the changes of this release are modest:
Now we have a friendlier user interface to manage multilingual web pages.
However, the most important changes concern the architecture and the programming interface, and are strongly related to the changes in the latest itools version.
This is the (new) architecture diagram:
2) File Handlers & Database (itools.handlers) | 3) Web Framework ---------------------------------------------- | (itools.web) 1) Virtual File System (itools.vfs) |
Summarizing: now the distinction between the different layers is cleaner.
Another important change from the architecture point of view, we have decentralized three different aspects:
the definition of the fields to be indexed
the definition of the metadata fields
the upgrade logic
Before these three aspects were defined globally, now they are centered on the objects. This means, for instance, that now it should be much more easy to develop third-party modules.
Please check the upgrade notes for a more detailed description of what has changed.
