Python trademark in danger Feb 15, 2013
A bit off topic: The Python foundation that is behind the Python programming language posted a call for help because of an legal issue involving their trademark "Python".
There is a company in the UK that is trying to trademark the use of the term "Python" for all software, services, servers... pretty much anything having to do with a computer. Specifically, it is the company that got a hold on the python.co.uk domain 13 years ago. At that time we weren't looking a lot at trademark issues, and so we didn't get that domain.
This hasn't been an issue since then because the python.co.uk domain has, for most of its life, just forwarded its traffic on to the parent companies, veber.co.uk and pobox.co.uk. Unfortunately, Veber has decided that they want to start using the name "Python" for their server products.
They tried to talk with that company unsuccessfully. Python now needs evidence that it is widely used and best by known companies in the EU to not loose it.
Although Zenphoto itself does not use Python (the Trac system we used until 2012 did though), please help if you can. This could technically happen to any other open source project as well. We made a donation to help with the (...)

Please let us know in the support forums if you find any issues or problems since the migration.
Haven't donated yet? Donate to the Zenphoto project here and help us keep the server running. Thanks!

Zenphoto 188.8.131.52b Feb 01, 2013
Sorry for the inconvenience but we had to release Zenphoto 184.108.40.206b which is an update to 220.127.116.11
It corrects the check_for_update plugin so that it does not improperly report that there is a newer release and prevents lowercasing the default database handler name.
As usual we recommend all users upgrade for the latest updates and fixes. For more detailed info about the fixes please review the GitHub issues list.
