What works with Plone 4?

Comments | Filed under: ,

Plone 4 is about to be released and only a few products have been tested from a compatibility standpoint.

As part of the plan to update our current Plone 3 demo instance to a Plone 4 based demo, I started to test some products in Plone4 and here is a quick tally of my findings. Basically I checked if I could add the product to the buildout, install it, and use it:

* Lineage (added, installed, used)

* Linguaplone (added, installed, used)
    * renders horrible with the sunburst theme

* PloneFormGen (added, installed, used)

* CacheSetup (added, installed, didn't try)

* Products.Maps (added, installed, didn't try)

* Plone4Artists video (fail: product not compatible)
    * Tune-up announced

* Plone4Artists calendar (fail: product not compatible)

* Easyslideshow (fail: product not compatible)
    * Six Feet Up will be working on this product shortly.

Just FYI,;=Plone+4&path;;_type=PSCProject lists all products that are currently marked by the authors as Plone 4 compatible. As of today, there are 169 product releases that are Plone 4 compatible, including many (but not all) of our most commonly-used products.

FWIW, as at 6 July 2010 (Plone 4.0b4), I found these didn't work: - Products.CacheSetup (Zope wouldn't start due to certain imports) - Products.PloneHelpCentre 3.0b3 (apparently branch in the works) - Products.Ploneboard 2.1b2 (apparently branch in the works) - Products.QuillsEnabled 1.7.0 (blogs can't be applied) - webcourtier.dropdownmenu 2.0 (breaks themes etc) and otherwise, these work/mostly work: - Products.Collage (mostly works, one minor issue with icons; reported to bug tracker) - collective.collage.portlets (seems okay) - collective.twitterportlet (seems okay and works) - collective.easyslider (apply slider to folders ok, and JS all working; actually better with adding slides than Plone 3) - (and associated underlying packages) Seems like a bit hit-and-miss for now.

Great news! collective.easyslideshow is a very cool product, could you put it in pypi too?

PloneLDAP works fine, at least against OpenLDAP.

We are working on finalizing the tests and docs, then we plan on releasing it to the community.
