Hi. I just updated the 2.12.x branch with one last batch of bugfix versions. I'll let the buildbots run and if there's no troubles release one more version later this week.
I consider this to be the last maintenance release for the 2.12.x series. From now on 2.12.x will only see security updates. I've also put an end-date to the security support (http://zope2.zope.org/releases), stating October 2013 as the end date. This happens to be the end of security support for Python 2.6 - the only Python version supported by the 2.12.x series. This is rather long in the future, one and a half years from now. I think that sets reasonable expectations and gives us a clear end date. It's not meant to prohibit anyone from doing security releases after this date - just set clear expectations to others, like Linux distributors shipping Zope 2 and relieve me of my formal duty ;-) The 2.13 series is going to be supported longer. How long depends on Python 2.7's support and how Zope 4 is going to progress. At this point there's no formal end-of-life date. If you have concerns, please speak up. Zope 2.x release managerly yours ;-) Hanno _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - Zope-Dev@zope.org https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
