On behalf of Twisted Matrix Laboratories, I am honoured to announce the release of Twisted 16.2!
Just in time for PyCon US, this release brings a few headlining features (like the haproxy endpoint) and the continuation of the modernisation of the codebase. More Python 3, less deprecated code, what's not to like?
- twisted.protocols.haproxy.proxyEndpoint, a wrapper endpoint that gives some extra information to the wrapped protocols passed by haproxy; - Migration of twistd and other twisted.application.app users to the new logging system (twisted.logger); - Porting of parts of Twisted Names' server to Python 3; - The removal of the very old MSN client code and the deprecation of the unmaintained ICQ/OSCAR client code; - More cleanups in Conch in preparation for a Python 3 port and cleanups in HTTP code in preparation for HTTP/2 support; - Over thirty tickets overall closed since 16.1.
For more information, check the NEWS file (link provided below).
You can find the downloads at https://pypi.python.org/pypi/Twisted (or alternatively http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/wiki/Downloads). The NEWS file is also available at https://github.com/twisted/twisted/blob/twisted-16.2.0/NEWS.
Many thanks to everyone who had a part in this release - the supporters of the Twisted Software Foundation, the developers who contributed code as well as documentation, and all the people building great things with Twisted!
Twisted Regards, Amber Brown (HawkOwl)
