Hi Uli,

Thanks for taking care of this.


Move to a conditional include of a menu.zcml that (or include a
menu.zcml file that conditionally) registers the browser menus for
zmi_views and release a new minor version, declaring an extra
dependency on the packages that provides zmi_views. With this, release
a new minor version that will be backward compatible, due to the

Then release a new major version that removes the include and the
conditional. Add to README the instructions for manually including
menu.zcml if this functionality is needed.

If you get tired, do just one of the above :-)
