Zope Weekly News for September 9, 1999

Hi,

Now that Zope 2.0 final is out, it’s time to start trying to
understand and put to use all the cool new stuff in Zope 2.

The new Zope.org website, while still in beta, is starting to
become a great source of information for Zope users. There are
already 37 How-Tos on the site, all searchable. The new site will
soon replace the existing Zope.org site.

* Chris Petrilli updated the Oracle and ODBC Database
Adapters.
