Twisted 16.6.0 Released

On behalf of Twisted Matrix Laboratories, I am honoured to announce the release of Twisted 16.6!

The highlights of this release are:
  • The ability to use "python -m twisted" to call the new twist runner,
  • More reliable tests from a more reliable implementation of some things, like IOCP,
  • Fixes for async/await & twisted.internet.defer.ensureDeferred, meaning it's getting closer to prime time!
  • ECDSA support in Conch & ckeygen (which has also been ported to Python 3),
  • Python 3 support for Words' IRC support and twisted.protocols.sip among some smaller modules,
  • Some HTTP/2 server optimisations,
  • and a few bugfixes to boot!
For more information, check the NEWS file (link provided below).

You can find the downloads on PyPI (or alternatively our website). The NEWS file is also available on GitHub.

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)
