Twisted 10.1.0pre1 released – please test

From the dank and grey depths of a London summer, a thin, reedy voice wanders across the waves of the Internet, saying that it's jolly well pleased to announce the first 10.1.0 pre-release.

We would very much appreciate it if you could download the tarballs, test them on your systems, and file tickets as appropriate.

Highlights include:

  • Deferreds now support cancellation
  • A new "endpoint" interface which can abstractly describe stream transport endpoints such as TCP and SSL
  • inotify support for Linux, which allows monitoring of file system events.
  • AMP supports transferring timestamps

For more information, see the NEWS file.

If there is only positive feedback from the pre-release, we aim to do the final release some time later this month.
