I'm please to announce the first official release of StandaloneZODB, the Python object persistency system also known as the Z Object Database. ZODB is the object-oriented database underlying Zope; the StandaloneZODB project's goal is to provide those same facilities to non-Zope related Python applications.
Today we are releasing StandaloneZODB 1.0 release candidate 1. We expect to release the final version on 1-Feb-2002. StandaloneZODB is based on the same code as the ZODB in Zope, albeit on a separate release branch. Its inspiration comes from Andrew Kuchling's StandaloneZODB project on SourceForge. While there are still some differences, the Standalone 1.0 release is the first on the path toward convergence. Subsequent releases should complete the merge of Andrew's and Zope Corporation's packages. The StandaloneZODB release includes the following components: - Core ZODB, including the persistence machinery - Standard storages such as FileStorage - Supporting modules such as ExtensionClass - The persistent BTrees modules - ZEO - Experimental Berkeley storages - Some documentation <wink> See the README file for details on building and installing StandaloneZODB. For details on using ZODB, see Andrew's included user guide. StandaloneZODB 1.0c1 is released under the ZPL 2.0. It should be compatible with all Python versions from Python 2.1 to Python 2.2. It may or may not work with versions earlier than Python 2.1.
