A new print-css.rocks release is available with support for some new tools: Typeset.sh
At Plone Conference 2015 in Bucharest I presented the state of the XML Director project.
The upcoming version 1.3 will feature improved support for various external storages
A significant amout of efforts was invested into automatic interoperability tests with different backends. As outcome of these efforts we are now able to run the XML Director test suite (about 100 tests) against various backends (either running in Docker containers or available as external service) through Travis-CI - both for Plone 4.3 and Plone 5.0. So all code changes to XML Director will trigger 1400 tests against the various software and backend combinations.
The latest XML Director release (Version 1.3 beta 1) is available from PyPI
I had various discussions with people during the Plone Conference. The main topic was about a deeper integration into Plone (similar to Reflecto providing search integration through content proxies). In general I want to keep the current implementation small and minimal. I think that a deeper integration could be integrated as an layer on top. Necessary infrastructure in terms of notifications and hooks could be added in order to provide everything for higher level modules everything to make mounted content more usable and re-usable inside Plone. However a deeper integration into Plone must be well-thought since there a lot of edgecases to be considered. I am open for further discussions and suggestions...get in touch!
