Hi all,

We are happy to announce that at long last Zope 2.0.0 final has
been released! Zope 2 is the result of a lot of hard work by both
Digital Creations and the Zope community - thanks to all of you who 
have contributed bug reports, patches, feedback and good ideas to 
the effort. We feel that Zope 2 represents a great leap forward, 
and we hope you'll agree that the time spent has been worth it.

Zope 2 includes:

  - A high performance, multithreaded publishing environment

  - ZODB 3, the next generation of the Zope Object Database

  - Z Classes, a new mechanism for building Zope applications

  - Built in searching and indexing support with ZCatalog

  - WebDAV level 1 support

  - FTP support

  - Support for XML-RPC clients.

  - ZServer, the integration of Zope and Medusa,

  - Builtin XML support and DOM interfaces

  - Many other sundry big significant items, such as:

    o Look and feel improvements,

    o Tighter security,

    o Simpler creation of Python products.

Zope 2.0 distributions are available on both the "official"
Zope.org website at: http://www.zope.org/ as well as on the 
new Zope.org beta site at http://www.zope.org:18200.
