Plone 5.2.8 is a bug fix release of Plone 5.2.
Some highlights of this release
Zope: Enhance cookie support. For details, see issue 1010
For more changes see Change log — Zope documentation 4.6 documentation
waitressis updated to version 2.1.1 to mitigate a vulnerability in that package. As waitress no longer supports Python versions less than 3.7 it is not advised to run Plone 5.2 on Python 2.7 or 3.6 any longer, even though they are still supported by Plone itself. You get an older
waitressversion then. If you must use an old Python version, please switch to a different WSGI server. See the recommendations in the Zope documentation.
- WARNING: the new
waitress2.1.1 does seem to suffer from a possible race condition leading to the process quitting. If you are affected by this, you can downgrade to 2.1.0 (which has a known security vulnerability, as mentioned above) or use a different WSGI server.
