On behalf of Twisted Matrix Laboratories, I am honoured to announce the release of Twisted 17.9.0!

The highlights of this release are:

- More Python 3 porting, including twisted.mail.imap4, twisted.python.shortcut, twisted.python.rebuild, twisted.web.sux, twisted.web.microdom, and a ton of bugs and inconsistencies fixed.
- twistd on Python 3 now supports the dns, inetd, portforward, procmon, socks, and words plugins.
- HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/2 OPTIONS * request support in Twisted Web
- twist web now accepts the argument --add-header, which can be used to set things like HSTS headers without custom code
- Improvements to IMAP4 behaviour and several logic bugfixes
- Removal of outdated documentation and updates to make them work on Python 3
- Over 70 closed tickets overall.

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)
