      ZOPE 2.6.2 Beta 1 Released

Zope 2.6.2b1 represents a development step in the next Zope release 
formed with a large number of community contributions. You may download 
Zope 2.6.2b1 from Zope.org:


Users of the Zope source release should note that Python 2.1.3 is now 
the required platform. Python 2.1.3 includes a fix to an issue that 
could cause crashes in Zope.

Users who upgrade from source MUST RUN a make clean and make command to 
build the proper binaries correctly; distutils will skip compilation of 
the library modules needed for Zope and will cause errors if they are 
not up to date.

Particular features of interest in Zope 2.6.2b1:


      Back ports of BTrees fixes


      Back ports of ZODB fixes relating to the packing of storage, where
      a packed database could contain an UNDO transaction which referred
      to data which had been discarded by the pack


      A fix for fsrecover.py which prevented it from recovering any data


      Fixes for collector issues 256, 683, 814, 816, 875, 892
