On behalf of the Zope 2 developers community I am pleased to announce the official release of Zope 2.12.0.
Major changes: - Ships with ZODB 3.9 - Runs on top of Python 2.5 and 2.6 (no official support for Python 2.4, your mileage may vary) - Fully eggified - you install Zope 2.12 directly from PyPI using *easy_install* or *zc.buildout* - Lots of cleanup on the module level (e.g. ZClasses have gone forever - like it or not) - Ships with the Zope component library (aka Zope 3.4) - RESTified documentation in order to generate nice looking HTML/PDF documents using Sphinx - lots of other small details For more details, check: http://docs.zope.org/zope2/releases/2.12/WHATSNEW.html Release notes: http://docs.zope.org/zope2/releases/2.12/CHANGES.html Especially read the installation instructions since the installation process is different from all other Zope versions (because of the eggification process). Keep in mind that we do no longer provide the traditional all-in-one source tarball: http://docs.zope.org/zope2/releases/2.12/INSTALL.html The official Zope 2.12 project page on PyPI can be found here: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Zope2/ If you have found a bug, please report it on Launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/zope2/ I would like to thank all people having contributed to this release. Special thanks to Tres Seaver for his tireless efforts in fixing bugs and maintaining the Zope 2 codebase and Hanno Schlichting who worked hard and steadfast on the eggification of Zope 2 and on the cleanup of various dark corners of the Zope 2 codebase. In addition we launched the dedicated zope2.zope.org microsite today. This is one of the first steps for relaunching the Zope sites (including www.zope.org) asap.
