Hi everybody,

the ZODB team is proud to announce a technical preview of a Blob
implementation for ZODB.

Blobs are used to efficiently storage large amounts of binary data
within a database. This implementation uses real files on the file
system in combination with any ZODB storage (FileStorage, ...) and
native support for ZEO clusters. It is efficient in terms of memory and
CPU usage.

As this is a technical preview announcement, please notice that this
code might crash your computer, delete your data, and destroy your

Now, have a look at

This is a more or less recent ZODB 3.6 based branch with the additional
Blob support.

Check out the documentation in
to see how to use the blobs.

Feedback is welcome on zodb-dev at zope.org. You should be able to use this
ZODB with any recent Zope version (2.9 and 3 trunk).
