> It's been a pretty busy week in Zopeland. Lots of announcements, lots of
> activity on the Zope Documentation Project list, lots of questions, and
> even some answers.
> (Note: Unfortunately this week there is a problem with the Zope mailing
> list archive which prevents the listing of normal URLs to go along with
> all news items. This should be fixed by next week. So this week I am
> substituting egroups URLs as needed.)
> * Jim Fulton, technical director at Digital Creations, and Zope guru
> number one, announced that on May 19 there will be a Zope 2.0 Alpha 1
> source release. This means we are getting closer to having a fully
> threaded Zope! The only question is whether to hack Zope that day or see
> that new movie, what's it called again...
> * Beehive held the first Berlin Zope Barbecue! Not only that, but it
> was broadcast live on the net.
> * Paul Everitt asked for help with work writing a short piece of Zope
> for a forth-coming O'Reilly book on Python and Windows. He also posted a
> partial implementation of a COM Method object. However, it seems that
> perhaps the turnaround time on this project is too short for much of a
> community effort.
> * Many people discussed problems with IE and the latest Zope release.
> It looks like its an issue of HTTP headers.
> * Paul Everitt made a long post about Zope on an Infoworld forum about
> open source and business and generated some interesting comments.
> There was also some related traffic on the mailing list
> * Zope showed up on Scripting News on Wednesday.
> * Ty Sarna posted an experimental Symbolic Link Product.
> * Luciano Ramalho offered an example of an External Method which helps
> organize links to Documents inside Folders.
> * Jordan B. Baker announced a DTML mode for XEmacs.
> * Amos Latteier posted a rough draft of a ZClasses tutorial. Lots of
> folks are starting to use ZClasses now. Information is still scarce and
> lots of things are still changing (witness CVS activity), however more
> information is emerging and people are discovering cool things.
> * Mark Hays offered some security enhancements to the CookieCutter
> See you next week.
