Zope 2.8.8 Released

  On behalf of Zope Corporation and the Zope community I am pleased
  to announce the release of Zope 2.8.8.  You can download the sources
  from "http://www.zope.org/Products/Zope/2.8.8/",

  This bugfix release corrects the information exposure vulnerability
  addressed in the "2007/07/05 Hotfix.",
  You may remove that hotvix product from your instances after upgrading
  to this version of Zope.

New features of Zope 2.8.x

   - ZODB 3.4 with MVCC (multi version concurrency control) support.
     MVCC solves nearly every problem with ZODB read-conflict errors
     which is very important for high-traffic Zope sites.

   - Extension Classes were rewritten as Python new-style classes making
     all features of Python new-style classes available in Zope
     objects. This includes support for cyclic garbage collection.

   - Integration of Zope 3 technologies through Five
     (see http://codespeak.net/z3/five/)

Reporting Bugs

  Please report all the bugs you have found to the Zope bugtracker:


Supported Python versions

  At this time the only **supported** and **recommended** Python
  versions are 2.3.4 and 2.3.5.

  Using Python 2.4.X is **not supported** and **not recommended** at
  this time. Python 2.4.X will be supported when a security audit takes
  place.  This means that you are using Python 2.4 + Zope 2.8 at **your
  own risk**.  This warning also applies to binary packages that install
  Zope packages together with a system wide Python 2.4 installation
  (e.g. Fedora, SuSE...).  Such installations are in general not
  supported. In addition there some third-party products and Python
  packages that don't work with Python 2.4 and can cause trouble when
  using Python 2.4.
