July Twisted Tutorial and Sprint in San Francisco

There will be a Twisted tutorial/learning session in San Francisco on Friday, July 13th, at 7pm. Glyph will be giving the tutorial, and several core developers will be on hand to help.

There will be a Twisted sprint the next day, Saturday July 14th, from 10am to 9pm (or later, if folks want to stay later!) - come whenever and for however long you like. Hack on Twisted or a Twisted-related project, learn more about how to use Twisted, or just come hang out with us!

Food and drink will be provided at both events.

Both events are hosted at Rackspace, which is located at 620 Folsom St, Suite 100, San Francisco 94107. (between 2nd St and Howard, which itself is between 2nd and 3rd).

Please RSVP at our meetup site so we know how much food to get!

Annoucing Twisted 12.1

On behalf of Twisted Matrix Laboratories, I am pleased to announce the release of Twisted 12.1.

107 tickets are closed by this release, with the following highlights:
  • The revival of the kqueue reactor for BSD platforms.
  • epoll is now the default reactor under Linux after a fix to handle files on stdin/stdout.
  • New reactors supporting GTK3 and GObject-Introspection.
  • Several enhancements regarding file descriptors passing: systemd support for servers, ability to send and receive file descriptors for IReactorUNIX and an AMP argument using that feature.
  • Support for IPv6 literals in connectTCP.
  • Persistent connections support for the new HTTP client.
This is the last Twisted release supporting Python 2.5. For more information, see the NEWS file here:
