Limi's Plone presentation at EuroPython 2005
I've been away from Plone for most of the year, busy with school and currently with Java-based projects. I didn't know much about Plone 2.1, except that it's another big, important release with serious goals. Good to see Limi says its "the first release that doesn't suck". :-) From what I read, at least in the areas Limi mentions improvements in, definitely the suck-factor will be way down in those areas, and the sweet-factor is way up.
I was also pleased to read Plone 2.1 is aiming for (or has already achieved) compatibility with Zope 2.8, which I feel is very important for Zope and Plone from a scalability and reliability standpoint.
When 2.1 is released, try it out. Hopefully the installers ship with Zope 2.8. :-)
