Silva 3.0.1, a maintenance release with various improvements and fixes, has been released.


  • Update Silva XML import and export feature to a new API that tolerates and reports problems during the import. Performance of the export and import has been improved to consume less memory, in order to allow larger exports and imports.

  • Support symbolic links for extensions (meaning the path Zope sees is a symbolic link to a real extension).
  • Silva Containers (Folders, Publications...) now provide a method.
  • Various bug fixes.


Silva 3.0.1 requires Zope 2.13 and Python 2.7 and should be installed using this buildout:
