On behalf of Twisted Matrix Laboratories, I am honoured to announce the release of Twisted 17.5!

The highlights of this release are:

- twisted.python.url has been spun out into the new 'hyperlink' package; importing twisted.python.url is now a compatibility alias
- Initial support for OpenSSL 1.1.0.
- Fixes around the reactor DNS resolver changes in 17.1, solving all known regressions
- Deferred.asFuture and Deferred.fromFuture, to allow you to map asyncio Futures to Twisted Deferreds and vice versa, for use the with Python 3+ asyncioreactor in Twisted
- Support for TLS 1.3 ciphersuites, in advance of a released OpenSSL to enable the protocol
- Further Python 3 support in twisted.web, initial support in twisted.mail.smtp.
