At last, an update to the long-standing Zope plugin, for use with Zope 2.11 and up

For a long time I have been using the Zope Photo product to create on-line image sets. I have been managing a branch on my own for Zope2, and realized I should release it since the original branch has become obsolete.

The Photo product (i.e. package) has been updated to version 4.0 and supports Zope 4.0, EXIF tags and generally works better with modern versions of Zope.
It is highly-configurable, template-based, and has stored backed by the Zope2 database engine. The original was developed by Ron Bickers and was later adopted and updated by Soren Roug (now Head of software development group at the European Environment Agency).

The plugin (product) has always provided multiple configurable sizes of the photo. Photo Folders provide a way to manage a group of Photo objects by providing a way to specify display sizes and properties for all contained photos.

Key changes are: more EXIF format support, better support for very large images, more EXIF GPS tags are supported, support for newer Zope methods, various bug fixes.

The
photo 4.0 product tarball for Zope2 can be downloaded here.

A simple example can be seen on-line, but it has not been configured to be pretty.
