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 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 <> (or alternatively <>). The NEWS file is also available at <>.

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)
