On March 15-19 the Plone Cathedral Sprint happened at the GFU Cyrus AG in Cologne, Germany. Focus was on fixing outstanding bugs in Plone 4.0 (soon to be released) and to start work on Plone 4.1.
About 25 sprinters have been on site working on it for 5 days. I took the opportunity to talk to Eric Steele, the release manager of Plone 4.0 for COM.lounge TV:
Eric was also asking people to perform screencasts on what they have been working on and as videos show more than 1000 words, here are those demos:

There of course has been lots more going on such as:
- German and dutch translations for Plone 4 (Martijn Schenk and Jan Ulrich Hasecke)
- Performance Improvements including the storage and handling of image data (Andreas Zeidler and Simon Pamies)

A big thanks to the organizers for doing a great job on organizing such a productive sprint!
