Author: Archetypes development team



Archetypes is a developers framework for rapidly developing and deploying
rich, full featured content types within the context of Zope/CMF and Plone.

Archetypes is based around the idea of an `Active Schema`. Rather than
provide a simple description of a new data type, Archetype schemas do the
actual work and heavy lifting involved in using the new type. Archetype
Schemas serve as easy extension points for other developers as project
specific components can be created and bound or you can choose among the
rich existing set of features.


* Simple schemas with working default policy.

* Power and flexibility with lowered incidental complexity.

* Full automatic form generation

* Unique Ids for objects

* Object References/Relationships

* Per Type cataloging in one or more catalogs

Unit testing

* Go into the root of your buildout and run::
    bin/test Products.Archetypes

1.10.1 (2014-04-13)

- waking instances is cheaper than processing a potentially huge vocabulary 
  for getting the title, therefore we handle reference fields seperately
  [zwork, agitator]

- Remove DL's from portal message templates.

1.10.0 (2014-03-01)

- Set logging level to DEBUG for warnings regarding new fields initialized on
  an existing object. INFO level can seriously spam the logs of a busy portal.

- Ported fix for #13833 from the 1.9.x branch for reindexObjectSecurity
  triggering an error when attempting to change the workflow of an object
  and it has deleted children

- Do not use portal_interface tool but @@plone_interface_info (PLIP #13770).

- Internationalized file size and content type on file and image widgets.
  (needs Plone>=4.3.3)

- Make sure @@at_utils.translate method always returns a string (empty or
  not) even when the passed value is an empty tuple (before, the returned
  value was an empty tuple or a non empty string).

- Do not add warning about new field initialized on an existing object in
  the transaction description, show this as a Zope log info message.

- Move calendar_macros, jscalendar, and date_components_support here
  from CMFPlone and
  [bloodbare, davisagli]

- Replace deprecated test assert statements.

- ``Vocabulary`` method was not working with ``vocabulary_factory``
  and int values (IntDisplayList is required)

- Remove code and tests for the old discussion infrastructure
  (pre The discussion tool will be deprecated in
  Plone 5.

- Fix nesting-error in InAndOutWidget. This fixes

- Return original error during validation when a field already has an
  error.  This avoids ``TypeError: 'bool' object has no attribute
  '__getitem__'`` in ``Products.CMFFormController.ControllerState.``

- Various vocabulary fixes, mostly for translations and

- Make (non-valued) default value selected in select widget if no selection
  is given. This happens  especially with ReferenceFields.

1.9.4 (2013-08-29)

- Fixed error of validate_content_types when checking a field that was an
  instance of OFS.Image.File

- fix transaction note so long notes do not bork the transaction

1.9.3 (2013-08-14)

- Avoid UnicodeDecodeError in @@at_utils.translate if the value contains
  special chars

1.9.2 (2013-08-13)

- Make some methods of TypesWidget unpublishable.

- Allow commas as decimal marks for inputs in float fields. The comma is then
  replaced by Python's standard decimal mark, the dot. Comm
