Plone CMS 3.3 has been released

Plone, the open source content management system that runs on the Zope platform has seen a new incremental release.

Version 3.3 of the popular open source CMS brings the following enhancements and changes to the platform:

  • Automatic redirection when accessing link objects;
  • Resource registry improvements that make it easier to organize IE fixes;
  • More consistent HTML that makes theming with collective.xdv or Deliverance easier;
  • Improvements to the Windows installer, so it asks for password when it doesn't have the right permissions when being run;
  • Improvements to document locking behavior and timeouts, as well as the ability to disable it entirely;
  • Fixes for Internet Explorer 8;
  • Default disabling of in-line editing, which is invaluable in some use contexts, but causes usability problems in others;
  • A new view to render calendar events using the iCalendar standard;
  • Improved access to content histories;
  • The ability to customize indexing strategies with adapters; and,
  • Auto-discovery of ZCML configuration directives for add-on products.

In related news, there have also been a number of new additions to the Plone foundation board which you can read more about here.
