- Upgrade to chameleon 2.0 template engine and use the newest and
  z3c.ptcompat packages adjusted to work with chameleon 2.0.

  See the notes from the z3c.ptcompat package:

  Update z3c.ptcompat implementation to use component-based template engine
  configuration, plugging directly into the Zope Toolkit framework.

  The z3c.ptcompat package no longer provides template classes, or ZCML
  directives; you should import directly from the ZTK codebase.

  Also, note that the PREFER_Z3C_PT environment option has been
  rendered obsolete; instead, this is now managed via component

  Attention: You need to include the configure.zcml file from z3c.ptcompat
  for enable the template engine. The configure.zcml will plugin the
  template engine. Also remove any custom built hooks which will import
  z3c.ptcompat in your tests or other places.

  You can directly use the BoundPageTemplate and ViewPageTempalteFile from
  zope.browserpage.viewpagetemplatefile if needed. This templates will implicit
  use the template engine if the z3c.ptcompat configure.zcml is
- Remove unneeded dependency on deprecated
- Fixed ButtonActions.update() to correctly remove actions when called again,
  after the button condition become false.
