A new release of Zope Enterprise Objects (ZEO) is available at

ZEO turns the Zope object system into a distributed 
architecture, allowing multiple processors,
machines, and networks to act as one website.

This release fixes two bugs in release 0.2:

  - ZEO clients didn't work properly (effectively at all) on
    Solaris or Windows NT.

  - An error in the handling of the distributed transaction lock
    could cause a client to stop writing and eventually hang if
    two clients tried to commit a transaction at the same time.

  - Extra (harmless) messages were sent from the server 
    when invalidating objects during a commit.

  - New protocols (especially 'loadSerial'), used for looking at 
    DTML historical versions, were not implemented.
