Hi all,

on behalf of Zope Corporation and the Zope community I am pleased to announce the release of Zope 2.8.3. You can download Zope 2.8.2 from


This version obsoletes Zope 2.8.2 which shipped with an older Docutils
version as expected. For security reasons you should update to Zope 2.8.3.

Some new features of Zope 2.8:

  - ZODB 3.4 with MVCC (multi version concurrency control) support.
    MVCC solves nearly every problem with ZODB read-conflict errors
    which is very important for high-traffic Zope sites.

  - Extension Classes were rewritten as Python new-style classes making
    all features of Python new-style classes available in Zope
    objects. This includes support for cyclic garbage collection.

- Integration of Zope 3 technologies through Five (see http://codespeak.net/z3/five/)

For more information on what is new in this release, see the
CHANGES.txt files for the release:

the right distribution and installation instructions, please see:


Please also keep in mind that Zope 2.8.2 requires Python 2.3.5. Zope 2.8.2
is not certified for any Python 2.4.x versions. So using Python 2.4 is neither recommended nor supported and any related questions or problems are likely to be ignored until 2.4 is an officially supported Python version for Zope.
