4.5 (2017-06-03)

  • Drop support for Python 2.6.

4.4.0 (2015-01-09)

  • LP #98462: add additional “iterable mapping” methods to IAnnotations.
  • LP #878265:
    • Make persistent (used only for doctests) a soft dependency, installable via the zope.annotation[btree] extra.
    • Make BTrees (used for attribute storage) a soft dependency, installable via the zope.annotation[btree] extra. Fall back to using dict for attribute storage if BTrees is not importable.

4.3.0 (2014-12-26)

  • Add support for Python 3.4.

  • Replace deprecated zope.interface.implements usage with equivalent zope.interface.implementer decorator.
  • Drop support for Python 2.4 and 2.5.
  • Include zcml dependencies in configure.zcml, require the necessary packages via a zcml extra, added tests for zcml.

3.5.0 (2009-09-07)

  • Add ZODB3 to install_requires, because it’s a true requirement of this package, not just a testing requirement, as BTrees are in use.
  • Fix one test that was inactive because it’s function was overriden by a mistake.

3.4.2 (2009-03-09)

  • Clean up package description and documentation a bit.
  • Change mailing list address to zope-dev at, as zope3-dev at is now retired.
