thanks for your info and efforts.
I am currently working on a Project using Plone 2.0 for which I need a visual
Since the project is due by the end of the year, I need to use a solution that
is available by then.
My question therefore is:what is the state of the plone integration?
Is there something I could use to start with?
I would very much like to help beta testing, but it must be in an Plone
