OUTER SPACE (AP) -- Broadcasting from his self-styled "satellite of fiery doom" in a superlunar orbit on Monday, Evil Overlord Glyph Lefkowitz declared that a new version of Twisted Python, 0.8.8, was ready for download.
In an interview, a bleary-eyed, haggard looking Glyph dismissed rumours that he had escaped to the orbital space-station in order to escape the rampaging mob of Twisted Python users angered over the uncharacteristically unstable state of the 0.8.5 and 6 releases, as well as those who had lost family members to Chief Reality Engineer Allen Short's so-called "bugfixing" spree. "Complete nonsense!", he quipped, "My fans are as loyal as ever." Although, the wary Overlord was heard to inquire briefly after the interview about the status of the aforementioned rampaging mob.
Mr. Short was not available for comment.
In this release, you'll find better API documentation, an FTP server, and the new PB&J protocol/serialization suite. (this the intended replacement for gloop, previously entitled `gloop2'). Go hit your favorite your url (that's http://twistedmatrix.com/, in case you forgot), and download some firey doom today! :)
