eZ Components 2007.2alpha1 released

Author: Derick Rethans
Date: 2007-11-12 09:49

The eZ Components development team is pleased to announce the first alpha version of the new release, due to be out later this year. There are a few new components, but also many improvements to existing components.

New components

Tree, which handles the creating, manipulating and querying of tree structures. The component supports different storage algorithms for optimal performance. There are two tieins for this component, TreeDatabaseTiein, providing functionality to store tree-data in a database, and TreePersistentObjectTiein, providing data storage in the form of persistent objects.

Webdav, which allows you to set up and run your own WebDAV (RFC 2518) server, to enable online content editing for the users of your system through the WebDAV HTTP extension.

Download

The alpha version can be downloaded from the download page, or installed through the PEAR installer. You can upgrade to the alpha version by issuing the following command:

pear upgrade ezc/ezcomponents-alpha

Updated documentation is also available on the documentation page.
