Thu, 15 Mar 2001 13:25:20 -0500
Zope 2.3.1 beta 2 has been released - you can download it from
Zope 2.3.1b2 contains a number of bug fixes, including the fixes
for the issues addressed by the 02/23 and 03/08 hotfixes. It also
contains a number of changes to address issues with ZCatalog. New
data structures have been introduced to reduce the number of conflict
errors caused by object indexing under some types of usage, and
to reduce the amount of object database bloat that occurs when
indexed objects change frequently.
The changes to ZCatalog have been designed so that newly created
ZCatalog objects will take advantage of the new data structures.
Existing ZCatalog objects will continue to work with the old
data structures, but will not gain any of the benefits of the
new code. It is possible to upgrade an existing ZCatalog object
to use the new data structures by following the How-To at:
**Users of the Zope source releases should note** that this release
contains new C code, as well as a few changes to existing C code.
If you are using a source release (or the source diff update), be
sure to run 'w_pcgi.py' or 'wo_pcgi.py' as appropriate before starting
Zope to ensure that your binaries are rebuilt.
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 2.3.x site.
These updates are available for those currently using the
2.3.x source release or the 2.3.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
