Rotterdam/Paris, 10 march 2005 - Infrae, based in Rotterdam, the

Next generation technology
The Zope 3 platform is an advanced new version of the powerful Zope
application server, developed by Zope Corporation together with an
international group of open source developers. Zope 3 is written in
the acclaimed Python language, and enables programmers to rapidly
develop robust applications.
Built around a component architecture, Zope 3 offers increased
reusability and customizability, cuts production cost and time to
delivery, and extends the Zope platform´s lead in component-based
Continuing commitment to the Zope 2 platform
Infrae and Nuxeo remain committed to the Zope 2 platform. During the
preceding months the companies have used Five to extend Silva and CPS
with Zope 3 technology. Five is a component - developed by Infrae and
now maintained by an open source community - to integrate Zope 3
technologies in Zope 2. Nuxeo has made significant contributions to
Five, for instance exposing the full power of the Zope 3 schema/forms
machinery. Five is now ready for production use.
Open source development model
Infrae and Nuxeo are committed to the development of free software. We
intend to build the new components using an open source methodology.
Other people and parties are welcome to collaborate.
We see the advent of Zope 3 technologies as a key opportunity to align
and unify the Zope content management world, streamlining the exchange
of software, knowledge, and experience within the community.
