I have merged the 'py3' branch to 'master':
- - All tests pass under all four platforms using buildout.
- - All unit tests pass on all four platforms using 'setup.py test'.
I added the following note to the changelog:
ZODB 4.0.x is supported on Python 3.x for *new* applications only.
Due to changes in the standard library's pickle support, the Python3
support does **not** provide forward- or backward-compatibility
at the data level with Python2. A future version of ZODB may add
Applications which need migrate data from Python2 to Python3 should
plan to script this migration using separte databases, e.g. via a
"dump-and-reload" approach, or by providing explicit fix-ups of the
pickled values as transactions are copied between storages.
I pushed out a ZODB 4.0.0b1 release after the merge. If the buildbots
stay green over the weekend, I think we can release a 4.0.0 final early
