I have no problems will deprecating code and also aligning CMF with
particular Zope versions. It might, however, be useful to note if
any existing applications will be broken by the change. Oh, and it
might be nice for someone on the Zope release team to bring out
Windows versions of 2.9.5 and 2.10.0 for those who might need to
try them in advance.
I think trying to come up with a list of applications that "will
break" is utopian. We're not talking "locked-down walled garden" here
where the vendor has control over what the customer runs. We cannot
anticipate what will break, apart from very high-level (and thus not
all that helpful) statements like "sorry, CMF 1.3 probably won't run
on Zope 2.10". The possible software combinations out there are
As with any Zope upgrade (or Zope-related software) upgrade, users
will have to test for their specific situation. Create a test
instance with the new software, copy the database across, and see
what breaks. Due to the variability in peoples' setup and the
software they run that is the only sane advice to give.
As far as that Windows installer goes, that dicussion belongs on zope-
dev or firstname.lastname@example.org, where you will get the standard answer: "Sorry,
no one has stepped up to do this yet, would you like to volunteer?".
