Zope 4.7 and 5.4 released

On behalf of Zope developer community I am pleased to announce the releases of Zope 4.7 and 5.4.

These bugfix releases solve a few issues with object creation via WebDAV and a few ZMI page issues.

Zope 5.4 officially deprecates the PropertyManager property types ulines, utext, utoken and ustring and will show a warning in the ZMI when these are encountered. A function was added at ZPublisher.utils.fix_properties which will replace all these properties with their standard equivalents, see Add function ZPublisher.utils.fix_properties. by mauritsvanrees · Pull Request #993 · zopefoundation/Zope · GitHub for a usage example.

Due to ongoing domain ownership issues with the zope.org domain we are deprecating it in favor of the new domain zope.dev. All hosts and email addresses that used to live under zope.org are now reachable under zope.dev. These new Zope releases and the documentation at https://zope.readthedocs.io and https://www.zope.dev had all URLs and references updated to reflect this change. Finding and changing old references will take time, though.

For the full list of changes see the change logs at Change log — Zope documentation 4.6 documentation and Change log — Zope documentation 5.3 documentation.

Installation instructions can be found at Installing Zope — Zope documentation 4.6 documentation and Installing Zope — Zope documentation 5.3 documentation.


Also in 5.4: "Add support for Python 3.10." :rocket: :heart_eyes:

" Reinstate simple sessioning with Products.TemporaryFolder because the underlying issues with tempstorage have been fixed. (#985)"
" With a fixed tempstorage the old sessioning configuration that uses Products.TemporaryFolder and Products.Sessions becomes a very attractive option for small deployments again."
