Zope 3 is mature as a framework, but does not provide much "out of the
box". It's a basis upon which to build applications like Plone ... If
you are looking for something that provides Plone-like features on top
of Zope 3, it doesn't exist (yet).
Personally, I'm waiting for this: http://www.z3lab.org/
But it'll be a while yet!
Zope 3 is brilliant, but complex, and quite the departure from Zope 2,
so it'll take a while for the take up to occur.
What might work better for you is to use Zope 2 + the CMF, without
Plone. Plone can be fairly heavy and rigid, the CMF alone might give
you the tools you need. I use Zope 2 with success and good performance
on a hig traffic website, I wouldn't discount it just because of your
first impression ... There are many tweaks available that will
considerably improve performance for production systems.
