- Updated Translations: (header, footer, etc, all except admin sections
  are now tranlslation enabled).
- Translation Script (tr.ps): Is now alphabetically ordered,
  much easier to mantain. Note: Localizer Product Support has not been implemented
  (YET), mainly because of the "external" Product dependancy and secondly,
  I want to get all the translations in SYNC  with each other, and take it from there.

  what they are), also they are "centered", translation is also enabled
  for the titles (UI Improvement, thanks to Stephan Helma for the suggestion)

  optionally add it when creating (or responding to) a topic via a checkbox.
  Checkbox will not be available if the member does not (yet) have a
  signature in order to not clutter up the page.

  it will "show" in all messages the Member has posted. Avatars
  can also be "disabled" (All this is in the "Edit Properties" section).

  immediately, but after the posting has been "cleared" by the forum administrator.

- Removed "forum display language" (locale), language selection is
  now only for presentation display only.
- "fcForumObject" class is not (or should not be) visible anymore, it was
  deliberately set to visible so earlier forum versions could
  import forums from pre-2.x.
- Added a "default system language" and ask for it upon forum creation, this
  makes showing a "system-default" language when user arrives in the system and
  has not yet either change the presentation display language manually and/or
  has not been logged in the system (and using the user's default language)
- "Administration" forum cannot be erased by the forum administrator anymore
- Bug Fix. Members cannot respond to locked topics anymore, only Managers and Admins,
  in addition, a message is now shown displaying the topick locked status.
  (Note: Only Spanish and English have been translated this particulat message to,
  need to implement it in the other ones)

- "Reply w/Comments" (blockquote construct) breaks JavaScript when
  a mesage with "carriage returns" is tried to add to the response
  topic page (Esoteric).
- Security Update. Re-Implement security, by removing most of the
  docstrings from the methods to disable being called from the WEB,
  kept admin parmissions for certain methods, this may change in the
  future, but for the most part, the system appears to be 100% security
  patched in this version.

- Security Update. removed all (most) of the Public security declarations
  and change them to Private, nasty forgotten change upon product completion.
- Chage "Back To.." link/title so it does not prepend "Back To.." to the message
  so the Forum Administrator can put any message/link he/she wants
- Addition. "Quick Info", blockquote-style message just below the title
  for optional quick messages/notices, etc.
- Cosmetic. Login page automatically places the cursor in the "username" field
- Cosmetic. Sign-Up page automatically places the cursor in the "username" field

  changed to "Change Custom Title/Link Settings", and once in that page,
  new instructions/information on what it does was added.

  change the system membership policy allowing users to select their own passwords
  upon signing up in the system or having the system email a temporary
- Addition. "Jump To Forum..." selection added. Shown on any forum, and will
  take care of security (i.e. will not show unauthorized forums)
- Enhancement. fcForum Creation Screen has more help information.
- Manual Updated

2.0.0a (20031001-1024)
- Fixed Another tedious, nasty-time-consuming bug that prevented
  the forums from operating normailly (a.k.a. Zope Error) when
  a user attempted to log in, or sign up from inside a topic thread.
- Fixed. Administrator (Reviewer Role) was not able to change roles of other
  users due to zope security machinery, I changed /admin/edit_user.ps
  to use the methods of the fcForum Class provided for that purpose.

  (skins colors were selected by "my other half" by mathematically
  combining colors, so don't flame )

  title in turn is the actual forum title. (rezidew)
