The Grok team is happy to announce the release of Grok 0.14!

This release is available on PyPI and a new index of specific versions of packages used by this release has been frozen at This means that new projects created with grokproject will start using this release right away.

This version of Grok is the first version that officially supports Python 2.5 (besides Python 2.4).


The focus of this release has been a restructuring of Grok, spinning off packages that can now be used independently in Zope 3 projects as well as in Zope 2 (through five.grok):

  • Spin off of grokcore.view - support for views is now maintained in this package.
  • Spin off of - support for security declarations is now maintained here
  • Spin off of grokcore.formlib - support for zope.formlib based forms
  • Spin off of grokui.admin - the admin UI is now distributed separately, but grokproject automatically will include it when you create a new grok project.
  • the grok.Skin baseclass is now gone and has been simplified with the directive that can be placed on a layer instead.


To upgrade an existing project from 0.13 to 0.14 you have to:

  • include grokui.admin explicitly as a dependency in your
  • update the versions.cfg in your project with the version from
  • modify uses of grok.Skin to use the directive
