Hi all,on behalf of Zope Corporation and the Zope community I am pleased to announce the release of Zope 2.8.4. You can download Zope 2.8.2 from
http://www.zope.org/Products/Zope/2.8.4/ This version obsoletes Zope 2.8.2 and Zope 2.8.3 which shipped with an older Docutils version as expected. For security reasons you should update to Zope 2.8.4. In addition this release fixes a potential security problem when using Zope with Python 2.4 - although Python 2.4. is neither recommended nor supported. This release does *not mean* that Python 2.4 isfrom now on supported but there are already installation using Python 2.4 (mostly because modern Linux distributions ship with Python 2.4 and Zope usually uses the system-widePython installation).
Some new features of Zope 2.8: - ZODB 3.4 with MVCC (multi version concurrency control) support. MVCC solves nearly every problem with ZODB read-conflict errors which is very important for high-traffic Zope sites. - Extension Classes were rewritten as Python new-style classes making all features of Python new-style classes available in Zope objects. This includes support for cyclic garbage collection.- Integration of Zope 3 technologies through Five (see http://codespeak.net/z3/five/)
For more information on what is new in this release, see the CHANGES.txt files for the release: http://www.zope.org/Products/Zope/2.8.3/CHANGES.txt See also: http://www.zope.org/Wikis/DevSite/Projects/Zope2.8/OverView Please bring all the bugs you have found to the Zope bugtracker: http://collector.zope.org/Zope":http://collector.zope.org/Zope For more information on the available Zope releases, guidance for selecting the right distribution and installation instructions, please see: http://www.plope.com/Books/2_7Edition/InstallingZope.stx Please also keep in mind that Zope 2.8.4 requires Python 2.3.5. Zope 2.8.4is not certified for any Python 2.4.x versions. So using Python 2.4 is neither recommended nor supported and any related questions or problems are likely to be ignored until 2.4 is an officially supported Python version for Zope.
