Zope 2.5.1 beta 1 has been released - you can download it from Zope.org:


The binary releases for Zope 2.5.1b1 contain the Python 2.1.2 final 
release. Users of the Zope source release should note that Python 2.1.2 
is now the required platform. Python 2.1.2 includes a fix to an issue 
that could cause crashes in Zope.

The Linux binary is linked against RedHat 5.2 libraries; users of more 
recent distributions are encouraged to install the source release 
instead of the binary release of Zope.

Particular features of interest in Zope 2.5.1 beta 1:


      Fixed a crashing bug which resulted in the necessity of setting
      the workaround environment variable ZOPE_SECURITY_POLICY=PYTHON


      Updated ZODB to be compatible with Standalone ZODB


      Included the Unicode splitter left out of the Zope 2.5.0 binary
      release for Windows


      Miscellaneous bugfixes (see the changelog)
