Hello all,

  Zope 2.3.0 final has been released - you can download it from


  Zope 2.3 is focused on improving productivity, ease of use and 
  performance. New features in the 2.3 release supporting these 
  goals include:

    - Scripts to allow safe web management of logic, dramatically 
      improving the ability to separate logic and presentation in 
      site design

    - Cache Managers to provide a powerful caching infrastructure 
      for dramatically improving site responsiveness while retaining 

    - Built-in infrastructure for complex virtual hosting of multiple 
      sites on one server

    - Significantly improved Zope Management Interface for web-based 
      authoring and administration

    - Other important changes, such as improvements in WebDAV support,
      customizable object creation, running an optional server for 
      browsing source documents, significant improvements in cataloging 
      and indexing, and a new quick start document with references to 
      the most important documentation for new users

  Zope 2.3 also marks the first feature release where a significant 
  amount of the work was done "in the fishbowl" using our open 
  development process on dev.zope.org. This release owes a lot to 
  the hard work of many in the Zope community in addition to folks 
  here at DC. The MVPs for Zope 2.3 include:

    - Evan Simpson (Python scripting and SiteAccess)

    - Shane Hathaway (CacheManager and many other things)

    - Adam Davis (improvements to the Zope interface)

    - Chris Petrilli (ZCatalog)

    - Toby Dickenson (improved Python 2 support)

    - Chris McDonough (improved UserFolders)

    - John Odom (StructuredText NG)

    - Michel Pelletier (Interfaces and new Quickstart)

    - Casey Duncan (ZCatalog patches)

    - Tres Seaver (FTP and DAV support in ZClasses)

    - John Heintz (patch for ExtensionClass)

    - Chris Withers (patches and bug hunting)

    - Tom Vijlbrief (FTP rename support)

    - Dieter Maurer (patches and bug hunting)

  My apologies to anyone I've missed - thanks also to the many 
  who participated the alpha and beta cycles and provided
