Dear Zope Community,
on behalf of Zope Corporation and all Zope 2 developers and contributors I am pleased to announce the release of Zope 2.8.0 a2
Zope 2.8.0 a2 can be downloaded from
The release notes can be found at
For information on using Python 2.4 with Zope 2.8: see doc/INSTALL.txt
This release is a major step towards Zope 2.8.0 final (scheduled for May 2005) and now includes for the first time the "Five" framework to make some Zope 3 technologies available within Zope 2. So you will be able to use Z3 technologies like interfaces, adapters, schemas and views within your Zope 2 installation and have hopefully the best from the Zope 2 and Zope 3 world.
Thanks to all who have worked on this release over the last weeks especially Martijn, Jim, Tres and Tim.
Andreas Jung Zope 2 Release Manager
