Plone 2.5.5 - Final - released December 4, 2007

    - Moved folder_rename logic into PloneTool and added
      savepoint+rollback there as well. Additionally, folder_rename
      now requires POST requests.

    - Moved most folder_publish and folder_delete logic into PloneTool
      methods. Added savepoints and rollbacks for folder publish and
      delete actions, so that partial deletions/transitions are not
      committed. Made folder_publish require POST. Thanks to rossp
      for finding this.

    - Add support for show_ymd to the calendar widget template. This
      makes it possible to create time-only widgets.

    - Fix 2.1 migration issue for sites using QueueCatalog.

    - Fix issues with non-ASCII characters in portal title.

    - Fix security hole due to unsafe use of python pickles.
