3.7.1 (2010-09-25)

  • Add test extra to declare test dependency on zope.component [test].
  • Use Python’s doctest module instead of deprecated zope.testing.doctest.

3.7.0 (2009-03-14)

  • Remove zope.container dependency, as contained principals didn’t make any sense, since PrincipalRegistry never provided IContainer. Also, zope.container pulls a number dependencies, that are not needed for non-persistent principal registry (like, ZCML, for example).

    Set __name__ and __parent__ by hand to provide some backward-compatibility and to save a pointer to registry from principal objects.

  • Initial release. This package was split from as a part of the refactoring process to provide global principal registry without extra dependencies.
