We have Python 2.7 final now and some work has begun on making ZTK
packages compatible with it. Currently we still see various test
failures in the zopeapp set though and nobody who steps up to fix

Apart from that, we have made a promise to support Python 2.4 up to
2.6 for the ZTK 1.0 release. The ZODB 3.10 releases do no longer
support Python 2.4 but require 2.5. The ZODB 3.9.x releases are in
maintenance mode for a while and currently don't support Python 2.7. I
doubt that we can get official 2.7 support for the 3.9.x release line.

Given all of these, I'm leaning towards not supporting Python 2.7 for
a ZTK 1.0 release. A 1.1 can drop Python 2.4 support and we can try to
support 2.7 in addition.

What do others think about this?


P.S. We talked about a rough timeline for a ZTK 1.0 release in the
release team. We are aiming to get a beta out in early August (once we
are all back from vacation). Test failures on any of the supported
platforms are blocking such a release. This includes any failures we
get on Windows. Hopefully more community members will step up and help
fix those.
