Twisted 10.1.0 released

Twisted 10.1.0 is finally out. It's a month late, but it's finally out there and free from the shackles of British rule.

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
Note also that this is the last release in which we will support Windows for Python 2.4.

For more information, see the NEWS file.

It's stable, backwards compatible, well tested and in every way an improvement. Download it the tarball, the Windows installer for Python 2.5 or the Windows installer for Python 2.6.

Update: We now have executable Windows installers for Python 2.5 and Python 2.6 to complement the MSIs.

Many thanks to Glyph Lefkowitz, who helped prepare the release, and the PyCon 2010 sprinters, who did so much of the work for this release.
