What's wrong with Zope 3 ?

The last downloadable release is from november 2004. The Windows
installer is configured for Python 2.3(!). The Zope.org main page
announces Zope 2.8 beta 2. Is it stillborn?

What you see is not Zope 3, it is Zope X 3. To quote from the X3
information page: "Zope X3 3.0 is for developers. If you are expecting
an end-user application, this is not for you."
The current stable brance is Zope2.X If you want to incorporate some
functionalty from X3 in Zope 2.X, do a search for "Five"

Yes I noticed this almost 8 months ago, read a bit of the documentation
and articles published that time, regarded it as interesting and
considered it for future development. But since then absolutely nothing
happened. No project plan, no time-schedule, no subsequent releases.

No, I do not want to migrate components from a new major release
backwards, as well as I do not want to migrate applications from WinXP
to Win98. This seems to be the wrong development process direction.

Kay

There are an awful lot of zope 2 applications out there looking
to migrate to zope 3. Five is one way to start that. Sort of like
there are still a lot of win98 systems out there, and running
python2.4 is a great way to get more use from the systems, but
still be able to migrate to xp (or mac or linux) when the time
comes.

You can always scan the zope3-mailinglist at zope.org (or via
news.gmane.org) to see whats happening. Migth be a better place for
questions, too.

Well, the problem is that it is not a "new major release" but a "new
mayor experimental release". And X3 is not backward compatible, so a lot
of Z2 products, e.g. Plone, don't work with X3.
