Appy 0.6.5 has been released

Written for Appy by Gaëtan Delannay on 2011-03-22

Changed in appy.pod

- Added default function 'text' that allows to dump a string containing carriage returns into the ODT, with statements like 'do... from text(someStringContainingCarriageReturns)'
- Bugfix in the management of conflictual inner-tags in the odt2html conversion: in some cases (when style mappings are applied), empty tags that needed to be removed were not removed because of the presence of tag attributes.

Changed in appy.gen

- Bugfix while displaying content of textarea-entered text (Strings with format=String.TEXT): for displaying again textarea content, I replaced 'backslash n' with html br tags, but in some cases carriage returns are stored as a sequence of 'backslah r' and 'backslah n' chars. In this case, 'backslash r' chars were left alone in the HTML page, producing sometimes strange behaviour within the browser.
- Stop storing workflow task attribute '_v_appy_do' as a volatile attr in ZODB (renamed it '_appy_do'). Sometimes it is removed by a sub-transaction during a long transition.
- Registration of the default Zope profile does not seem to work anymore. It is probably due to Plone hot fix from 2011-02-08. Here we have implemented an alternative way to register the profile, which works even with the hotfix.
- every field can now define a dict of i18n mappings that will be used for translating their label and/or description and/or help message(s).
- Bugfix in the validator for the default field 'UNO-enabled Python interpreter'.
- Bugfix while comparing values for historization purposes

New in appy.pod since 0.6.1: insert expressions via fields

Written for Appy by Gaëtan Delannay on 2010-11-23

Insert POD expressions in fields instead of track-changed text: they will then be copy/pastable, which is not the case for track-changed ones. Drawback: inserting such expressions may be a bit less easy than track-changed text. See an example in appy/pod/test/templates/FieldExpressions.odt (in the zip file). Note that track-changed POD expressions will still be supported.
