The security model has slightly tighened between Zope 2.5.1 and Zope 2.9.x. This might give you some places where you have to look for security related modifications. However, Zope will post much less hurdles than Plone. Ask the Plone mailing list about how to migrate from an ancient Plone to a current version. -- Dieter _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
