Hello all,

Zope 2.2.4 has been released - you can download it from Zope.org:

  http://www.zope.org/Products/Zope/2.2.4/

This release supercedes the 2.2.3 release, which 
had an error that prevented permissions from being acquired 
correctly. Until the testing infrastructure that has been 
started in the 2.3 CVS is more mature and there is a useful 
regression test rig, we'll be planning for at least one (short) 
beta period for third-dot releases.

This bug-fix release contains the fixes for all released 
Hotfixes to date, as well as fixes for a memory leak in 
the Acquisition module, various ZCatalog fixes and a fix 
for the infamous "__call__" bug. It also contains a fix 
for a problem in header parsing in the dtml sendmail tag 
that has affected some users recently. The problem with 
caching of ImageFile objects (mainly icons in the 
Zope management interface) in the 2.2.4 beta is also 
fixed (and verified using the Cacheability Engine 
(http://www.web-caching.com/cacheability.html).

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

- http://www.zope.org/Products/Zope/2.2.4/CHANGES.txt

- http://www.zope.org/Products/Zope/2.2.4/HISTORY.txt

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 release*
- restart your process
