Plone 3.0.0 Alpha 2 Installer for Windows (or… almost)

This was supposed to be the announcement of the Plone 3.0.0 Alpha 2 Installer for Windows, following Wichert’s announcement today. Unfortunately, a wrench has been thrown into the engine. For some reason easy_install refuses to unpack the package, complaining with a loud exception:

tarobj._extract_member(member,dst) # XXX Ugh
File "C:\src\ees\build\community\3.0.0\external-Python-2.4-source\lib\", line 1440, in _extract_member
self.utime(tarinfo, targetpath)
File "C:\src\ees\build\community\3.0.0\external-Python-2.4-source\lib\", line 1572, in utime
raise ExtractError, "could not change modification time"
tarfile.ExtractError: could not change modification time

That # XXX Ugh right there certainly doesn’t inspire much confidence. Who knows what the author meant.

In the meantime, while we sort out that issue, I want to share some exciting news with you. Enfold Systems has released beta versions of two of its main products yesterday, Enfold Server 3.0 Beta 2 (data sheet, download) and Enfold Proxy 3.0 Beta (data sheet, download). For more information check out the official announcement.
