Technical Contributions

ZODB 3.9.5
The ZODB 3.9, or newer, did not calculate the size of items in memory. Enfold identified and resolved the issue, allowing users to constrain the amount of RAM a Zope / Plone process uses to a specific size.

Also, If you attempted to run the ZODB in optimized mode, it would fail.  Enfold also addressed this issue and the fixes have been merged and incorporated into recent versions of the ZODB.

Plone 3.3.x now compatible with ZODB 3.9
Enfold has patched Zope 2.10/11.x  to now support the ZODB 3.9.  These changes are in the process of being merged with future releases.
