23 may 2007 – Infrae has released version 2.0 of the Silva content
management system. This architectural release targets Zope 2.10 and
higher and takes advantage of much of the new technology. Infrae has
striven to keep Silva 2.0 almost feature identical to Silva 1.6, while
refactoring and rebuilding large parts of the system ‘under the hood’,
using advances in Zope and Five infrastructure. This major reworking
should especially help extension developers by expanding the set of
tools available to them.

Changes in Silva 2.0

* Major refactoring of Silva to work with Zope 2.10 and up.
* The Silva Find extension has been included in the Silva core.

Many thanks to all who contributed. See HISTORY.txt in the Silva core
package for detailed information about changes in Silva 2.0. For
developer changes, see doc/developer_changes. Also see the changes in
components such as Silva Metadata, External Sources, etc.

What is Silva?

future-proof XML, independent of layout and presentation. Features
