Lastest release
version 4.0.0a4 on Sep 20th, 2013

This package implements several APIs related to internationalization and localization.

  • Locale objects for all locales maintained by the ICU project.
  • Gettext-based message catalogs for message strings.
  • Locale discovery for Web-based requests.


4.0.0a4 (2013-02-18)
  • Restore zope.i18n.testing.{setUp,PlacelessSetup} that got lost in 4.0.0a3. These require zope.publisher, which is not ported to Python 3 yet, so I haven't added it back to install_requires in setup.py. User beware.
4.0.0a3 (2013-02-15)
  • Added support for Python 3.3.
  • Log DEBUG when loading translations from directories.
  • Replaced deprecated zope.interface.implements usage with equivalent zope.interface.implementer decorator.
  • Dropped support for Python 2.4 and 2.5.
3.8.0 (2012-03-15)
  • Added optional domain attribute to registerTranslations directive to only load the specified translation domain. Allows to move catalogs to /usr/share/locale and avoid loading hundreds of unrelated domains.
  • Include meta.zcml files in our own zcml configuration as needed, added a test for our configure.zcml.
  • Update zope.i18n.NAME_RE to be identical to zope.tal as required by the comment next to it. Fixes #611746.
3.7.4 (2010-07-08)
  • Added missing test dependency on zope.testing.
3.7.3 (2010-04-30)
  • Removed use of 'zope.testing.doctestunit' in favor of stdlib's 'doctest.
3.7.2 (2009-12-14)
  • It's a critical error when the GetText library is unavailable and compilation is required.
  • Use getSiteManager rather than getGlobalSiteManager in ZCML (these should be one in the same in any non-fancy setup, however if you've hooked getSiteManager, you want the ZCML handler to use the hooked version).
3.7.1 (2009-08-07)
  • Fixed the interpackage translation domain merging feature to actually work. We need to defer the merging into the ZCML handler execution phase, as the utilities don't exist yet during the ZCML parsing phase. Thx to Andreas Zeidler for finding and fixing the issue in PlacelessTranslationService in the first place.
  • Fix translation domains translating a message for a different domain. In the process, fix testMessageIDTranslateForDifferentDomain which seemed to work by mistake as the "other" and "default" domains used the same catalog. This is basically a reversion of 39991.
3.7.0 (2009-03-18)
  • Updated locale data to CLDR 1.1. This introduces contextual month and day names and different month/day name widths. More CLDR updates are expected, see the "nadako-cldr" branch of zope.i18n.
  • Add configure.zcml that registers standard negotiator utility and includes zope.i18n.locales configuration. This was previously done by zope.app.i18n.
3.6.0 (2008-10-26)
  • Fixed a test failure in the compile mo file support.
  • Move the zcml support into an extra. This reduces the dependencies of a standard zope.i18n install by half a dozen packages.
3.5.0 (2008-07-10)
  • Feature: Added new top-level negotiate function, which can be used to negotiate the language when the available languages are set globally via zope_i18n_allowed_languages.
  • Feature: Added support for restricting the available languages. We support an environment variable called zope_i18n_allowed_languages now, which is a list of comma or space separated language codes. If the environment variable is set, the ZCML registration will only process those folders which are in the allowed languages list.
  • Feature: Added optional automatic compilation of mo files from po files. You need to depend on the zope.i18n [compile] extra and set an environment variable called zope_i18n_compile_mo_files to any True value to enable this option.
  • Feature: Re-use existing translation domains when registering new ones. This allows multiple packages to register translations in the same domain. If the same message exists in multiple catalogs the one registered first will take precedence.
  • Feature: Recursive translations of message strings with mappings (https://bugs.launchpad.net/zope3/+bug/210177), thanks to Hermann Himmelbauer for the inital patch.
  • Bug: When parsing a date, the parsing pattern did not ensure that the line started and ended with the matching pattern, so that '1/1/2007' parsed into '1/1/20' for example.
3.4.0 (2007-10-02)
  • Updated meta-data. No code changes.
3.4.0b5 (2007-08-15)
  • Bug: Fixed dependency on zope.component to require it with the 'zcml' extra instead of requiring zope.security directly.
3.4.0b4 (2007-07-19)
  • Bug: Number parsing was too forgiving, allowing non-numerical and/or formatting characters before, after and within the number. The parsing is more strict now.
3.4.0b3 (2007-06-28)
  • Bug: There was a bug in the parser that if no decimal place is given you still had to type the decimal symbol. Corrected this problem (one character ;-) and provided a test.
3.4.0b2 (2007-06-25)
  • Feature: Added ability to change the output type when parsing a number.
3.4.0b1 (?)
  • Bug: Fixed dependency on zope.security to require a version that does not have the hidden dependency on zope.testing.

Note: Releases between 3.2.0 and 3.4.0b1 were not tracked as individual packages. The changes can be reconstructed from the Zope 3 changelog.

3.2.0 (2006-01-05)
  • Corresponds to the verison of the zope.i18n package shipped as part of the Zope 3.2.0 release.
  • Added a picklable offset-based timezone to 'pytz', a la zope.app.datetimeutils'. Added tests in 'zope.i18n' to show that we need something like it, and then actually use it in 'zope.18n.format'.
  • Added support for parsing / formatting timezones using 'pytz' (new external dependency).
  • Implemented remaining date/time formatters, including adding week information to the calendar.
3.0.0 (2004-11-07)
  • Corresponds to the version of the zope.i18n package shipped as part of the Zope X3.0.0 release.
