[Zope-Annce] Ordered Folder 0.3.0 released
Wed, 18 Jul 2001 05:10:29 -0500
I am proud to be able to release Ordered Folder 0.3.0. I completely rewrote
the internals, so that it now does not copy anything from the original
ObjectManager. This way I do not have to adjust the OrderedFolder every
time a new Zope release appears. The new implementation does a couple more
operations, but it is in Python, so you will not notice it...
In fact, the OrderedFolder does now much more then just ordering the items.
The only reason I left the name is for compatibility, since I use it at
many places already ;-). But here the core functionality:
1. Order your objects without any changes in the regular API! This is
especially nice, if you want to have an order without any computer-logical
way of finding it. If you want to display the objects inside the folder,
you need no special order attribute in your objects anymore and simply sort
them right away in the folder...
2. If you have Transparent Folder installed, you are able to turn on and
off the transparency of the Ordered Folder. This feature was added since I
sometimes need ordering and transparency at the same time, but I did not
want to create yet another Folder!
3. You can select which other objects can be added via Zope (Management
Interface and DTML). It uses a similar mechanism to the folderish ZClass
behavior. This was added to clean up the List of available objects a little
bit, and define some structure in the tree.
