The expectation is that existing Zope 2 products will work with 2.8.
The security APIs will be unchanged.

We want Zope 2.8 to happen as soon as possible, so we can start working
on Zope 2.9.  Zope 2.9 will be the release that incorprates major parts
of Zope 3.

We think that NSEC and ZODB 3.3 provide more than enough of a change for
one release. :)

Me too. We need to get 2.7 and 2.8 out the door as soon as we
can so we can get working on 2.9.
