On behalf of Zope Corporation and the Zope community I am pleased to
announce the release of Zope 184.108.40.206. You can download the sources
This bugfix release corrects a problem introduced in 2.8.9, which
prevented starting Zope in "background" / "daemonized" mode.
New features of Zope 2.8.x
- 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
