Zope 2.2.4 has been released - you can download it from
This release supercedes the 2.2.3 release, which
had an error that prevented permissions from being acquired
correctly. Until the testing infrastructure that has been
started in the 2.3 CVS is more mature and there is a useful
regression test rig, we'll be planning for at least one (short)
beta period for third-dot releases.
This bug-fix release contains the fixes for all released
Hotfixes to date, as well as fixes for a memory leak in
the Acquisition module, various ZCatalog fixes and a fix
for the infamous "__call__" bug. It also contains a fix
for a problem in header parsing in the dtml sendmail tag
that has affected some users recently. The problem with
caching of ImageFile objects (mainly icons in the
Zope management interface) in the 2.2.4 beta is also
fixed (and verified using the Cacheability Engine
For more information on what is new in this release, see the
CHANGES.txt and HISTORY.txt files for the release:
Note that we have also posted "diff" updates as .tgz files
that will let you easily upgrade an existing 2.2.x site.
These updates are available for those currently using the
2.2.x source release or the 2.2.x binary releases.
To apply a differential update to your site:
- download the appropriate .tgz file from zope.org
- shutdown your Zope process
- copy the .tgz to your Zope directory and extract it
- run w_pcgi or wo_pcgi *if you are not using a binary release*
- restart your process
