zOpen Directory lets a Web site developer integrate all of the content of the Open Directory Project (ODP, Dmoz.org) into a Zope website. Since zOpen Directory works by downloading and parsing data from Dmoz.org only when such data is needed, there is no need to download the entire database. The tool is conveniently internationalized, and it features automatic language detection and the ability to run different versions in bilingual or multilingual Web sites. Currently supported languages include English, Basque, Spanish, French, Dutch, Catalan, German, and Italian.
NuxUserGroups is a Zope product that adds the notion of groups of users. Groups provide a level of indirection in the user -> roles mapping, which provides greater flexibility. The groups are defined and managed in the User Folder. They are then used at the local roles level, where you can define an additional mapping of groups -> roles, thus giving the users who belong to these groups additionnal local roles. A workgroup can be defined simply and managed in a centralized manner.
NuxDocument is a Zope product that represents generic documents by using plugins to convert native productivity suite formats to HTML (for viewing or previewing in a regular browser) or to plain text (for indexing). With the appropriate external conversion programs, NuxDocument currently provides support for MSOffice (DOC, XLS, and PPT), OpenOffice (a.k.a. StarOffice 6), RTF,and PDF formats.
NauSite is a Content Management System and enterprise portal. It stores the data in a centralized hierarchical repository easily accessible from a Web browser.

The management interface provides abilities to publish documents for external access, conduct their accommodation and define workflows or paths of execution for them, as well as common operations such as move and copy. Other features include multiple external Web sites, customizable design and skins, a WYSIWYG HTML editor, preview before publishing or printing, a content filter, indexes and search functions, email integration, role-based access control, and support for multiple languages.
The eGenix mxODBC Zope Database Adapter (Zope DA) allows you to easily connect your Zope installation to just about any database backend. Unlike Zope's ZODBC Zope DA, the mxODBC Zope DA works on Windows, Linux, and Solaris using the same interface. It implements thread-safe connection pooling and multiple physical connects per logical Zope connection. You can safely run Z SQL Methods in parallel, achieving much better performance than ZODBC Zope DA or similar database adapters under heavy load. This makes it ideal for deployment in clusters and hosting environments where stability and high performance are a priority.
With Zope Object Files and the 'zof_install' associated script, you can work on Zope objects directly on the filesystem and install them to a Zope server with a simple makefile (exporting is also provided). Meta-data instances are stored in a simple XML file with pointers to data documents. It is used in production, but some objects do not work.
