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 b1.
Zope 2.8.0 b1 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
Every developer is strongly encouraged to test Zope 2.8 beta 1 *now* and not
to wait until the final Zope 2.8 release...that's why we have beta releases :-)
The quality and stability of the final release depends on *your* testing *now*.
This release is a major step towards Zope 2.8.0 final (scheduled for the 3rd week of 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 the Zope 3 world.
Andreas Jung Zope 2 Release Manager
