On behalf of Zope developer community I am pleased to announce the release of Zope 5.0!
- drops support for Python 2.7 and 3.5
- drops support for
- adds support for the newly released Python 3.9
Although this release is a major one, it should be possible to use it without any changes if the following preconditions are met:
Your project runs on the latest Zope 4 release on Python 3.6+ and does not use ZServer.
Neither your tests nor running your Zope instance shows DeprecationWarnings.
Additionally this release contains some minor features and bug fixes which have been backported to Zope 4 where possible.
As Zope 5 is now released, Zope 4 is put into bugfix mode until 2021-12-31.
