Hi all,

  Zope 2.2.0 final has been released - you can download it 
  from Zope.org:


  Many thanks go to all of those who have worked with the 
  alpha and beta releases and helped work through the more 
  than 110 (!) issues that have been closed since Zope 2.1.6 
  came out.

  The Zope 2.2 release includes:

    - The new security policy implementation and object ownership 
      that addresses the server-side trojan issue:


    - The new online help system which provides context-sensitive 
      help for all Zope management screens and includes Zope API 

    - A built-in Zope tutorial to get new users started with Zope

    - Basic internal support for mountable object databases

    - A new "history" tab for selected objects that provides access
      to previous revisions through the web

    - Better performance on many systems as a result of setting a 
      more appropriate value for the "check interval" of the Python 

    - Many, many bugfixes!
