Hello all,
  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
