  Zope 2.6.2 Now Available

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

    * Fixed an error where ZClasses that subclassed ObjectManager would
      not load.
    * Fixed a case where objects trying to check access rights on behalf
      of another user were unable to do so.
    * Fixed memory leak with Page Templates
    * Python 2.2 compatibility fixes
    * 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, 514, 683, 814, 816, 823, 875, 882,
      892, 902, 928, 937, 939, 954, 956, 959, 964
