"Zope 2.3.1 contains fixes for a number of issues that have come up since 2.3.0, including the fixes for the issues addressed by the 02/23 and 03/08 hotfixes. It also contains a number of changes to address issues with ZCatalog. New data structures have been introduced to reduce the number of conflict errors caused by object indexing under some types of usage, and to reduce the amount of object database bloat that occurs when indexed objects change frequently."

"The changes to ZCatalog have been designed so that newly created ZCatalog objects will take advantage of the new data structures. Existing ZCatalog objects will continue to work with the old data structures, but will not gain any of the benefits of the new code. It is possible to upgrade an existing ZCatalog object to use the new data structures by following the How-To...."

"With the 2.3.1 release we have added a Linux Itanium binary distribution. Note that the Itanium binary is bundled with Python 2.0 instead of Python 1.5.2. This release (Zope-2.3.1-linux2-ia64-alpha.tgz) is named with "alpha" because it is the first for the platform. All unit tests pass and moderate testing has found no problems (actually, any problems you find are more likely to be issues with Zope on Python 2.0 rather than issues with the platform)."
