Bug fix and alpha releases

The eZ Components team just released new versions of the Configuration and Mail components that address minor bugs in those components. Besides this, we also released alpha versions of Debug, Template, TemplateTranslationTiein, Translation, Tree and TreeDatabaseTiein; those alpha versions introduce new functionality such as support for stack traces, translatable strings and auto-generated Node IDs.

The fix in the Mail component addresses an issue with double folding of long To, Cc and Bcc headers. New versions can be installed through the PEAR installer with:

pear upgrade ezc/Mail
pear upgrade ezc/Configuration

The Debug package features a new function for retrieving back traces and CSS support for its generated reports.

The new TemplateTranslationTiein component ties the Template and Translation packages together. The Template component has now new language constructs that allow you to embed translatable strings in your templates. The Template tutorial explains on how to use this feature.

The Tree and TreeDatabaseTiein components now support auto-generation of node IDs, allowing for more flexible usage. This also makes the component support auto-increment fields in the database backends. More information about this is available through the Tree tutorial.

The alpha versions can be installed by running the following commands:

pear upgrade ezc/Template-alpha ezc/Translation-alpha ezc/TemplateTranslationTiein-alpha
pear upgrade ezc/Tree-alpha ezc/TreeDatabaseTiein-alpha
pear upgrade ezc/Debug-alpha

The alpha releases will become part of 2008.1alpha1, which we hope to release early May.
