Archetype is an Umbraco 7 property editor that wraps other installed property editors. By wrapping the other properties, Archetype allows for custom and repeatable fieldset mashups.

Think Widget Builder, Embedded Content, Data Type Grid.

Ships with it's own Property Editor converter for easy template use.

v1.13.1 is targeted for core 7.2.2+.  There is a known issue with v7.2.2 that is fixed with v1.7.1+.

There is a known conflict with the core and Archetype which can be resolved by using the "DatabaseSizer.dll".  Please use at your own risk (backup DB first). This is not be necessary with v7.2.2+.  Some discussions about it here: http://bit.ly/XSFyoc
