Berkley Database Storage

 by Ethan Fremen

  Barry Warsaw and Jeremy Hilton of PythonLabs fame have been hard at work 
  a new storage for zope.  This new storage, using the Berkely database from
  SleepyCat software, enabling a number of improvements over FileStorage.py.

  There are several storage implementations, but the one that matches 
  abilities is the "Full" version.  This version supports undo, versions, 
  automatic reference counting garbage collection.
