Replace "Zope 3" with "Zope component architecture" or "Zope web 
components". That's where we are: Zope 3 was always a set of components. 
Since some time every individual module has its own
lifecycle and its own releases. Those components are widely use in 
various projects (Plone, Zope 2, Grok, Repozse, other Python projects). 
Don't expect any further "Zope 3" release - expect that the individual
components will ongoing improvements over time. The core components are 
very mature and the goal splitting Zope up into pieces is basically 
achived (according to Jim Fulton)
