We're close to finishing a new version of ZEO, which will be released as part of the next ZODB3 release (formerly StandaloneZODB).
I think this would be a good opportunity to make ZEO a standard part of Zope, starting with Zope 2.7. Advantage for users: if you download Zope, you have everything you need; you don't have to find and download a separate ZEO or ZODB release. Advantage for Zope developers: no need to test and maintain a separate ZEO release. There will still be a separate ZODB3 release, which will include ZEO. We have to do this anyway, for people who want to use ZODB outside Zope. Is there anybody who thinks this is a bad idea? (Full disclosure: Brian & Jim think it's a good idea, as long as we make sure that the ZEO that goes into the Zope 2.7 release is properly documented from the sysadmin POV, i.e. how to start/stop/configure. Of course we'll do this.) --Guido van Rossum (home page: http://www.python.org/~guido/) _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
