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:
