Happy Holidays all,

Zope 2.2.5 beta 1 has been released – you can download it from


This release contains a number of bug fixes, and includes all
Hotfixes to date. It includes the fix for a memory leak that could
occur when accessing SQL data through aliased names, a fix for a
problem with contention between concurrent POST requests and a
number of fixes to improve support for current WebDAV-aware clients
such as Adobe GoLive.

Note that this release contains a change to the ExtensionClass
binary – if you are running a source release you should rebuild the
Zope binaries after upgrading or applying a “diff” update.

For more information on what is new in this release, see the
CHANGES.txt and HISTORY.txt files for the release:



Note that we have also posted “diff” updates as .tgz files that
will let you easily upgrade an existing 2.2.x site. These updates
are available for those currently using the 2.2.x source release or
the 2.2.x binary releases.

To apply a differential update to your site:

– download the appropriate .tgz file from zope.org

– shutdown your Zope process

– copy the .tgz to your Zope directory and extract it

– run w_pcgi or wo_pcgi *if you are not using a binary

– restart your process
