Discussion in 'Python' started by Itamar Shtull-Trauring, Sep 16, 2003.

  1. Twisted is an event-driven networking framework for server and client
    applications.

    What's New in 1.0.7
    ===================

    - Client Jabber support.

    - twisted.xish, an XML package supporting a DOM-like API and a
    XPATH-like API.

    - Woven web templating toolkit is now much faster, and no longer
    supports the interim APIs it had during development.

    - Security tightening in the web server, especially on Windows.

    - XML-RPC server is now easier to extend, and can publish the XML-RPC
    introspection API as an option.

    - Working minimum and maximum sizes for database connection pools.

    - New connection API for Perspective Broker, allowing easy SSL
    support, reconnection, etc..

    - Better lenient HTML parsing in microdom.

    - Many improvements to mail protocols (SMTP, POP3, IMAP).

    - Continued switch to updated cred unified authentication backend
    in the various protocols supported by Twisted.

    - SOAP support now requires SOAPpy 0.10.1 or later.

    - mailmail, a replacement for the common usage of command-line
    /usr/sbin/sendmail.

    - Bug fixes, documentation improvements, more tests.


    What is Twisted?
    ================

    Twisted is an event-driven framework for building networked clients and
    servers. It contains a powerful and simple networking core, a
    full-featured suite of interoperable protocols, among them a powerful
    web server and applications framework.

    Twisted supports many event loops for both server apps and GUI
    integration on the client side, including:

    - Win32 events, including GUI support
    - GTK+
    - GTK+ 2
    - Qt
    - wxPython
    - Tkinter

    Twisted can run protocols over TCP, SSL, UDP, multicast, Unix sockets
    and subprocesses. It also includes scheduling support, threading
    integration, RDBMS event loop integration and other basic requirements
    for networked applications.

    Also included are implementations of many protocols. In some cases this
    includes complete frameworks providing facilities on top of the base
    protocol:

    - SSH
    - IMAP
    - DNS
    - FTP (client only, server needs rewrite)
    - HTTP, including a complete web framework
    - Jabber client
    - XML-RPC server and client frameworks
    - SOAP server framework
    - NNTP and complete NNTP server framework
    - SOCKSv4 (server only)
    - SMTP
    - IRC
    - telnet
    - POP3
    - AOL's instant messaging TOC
    - MSN messaging
    - OSCAR, used by AOL IM as well as ICQ (client only)
    - MouseMan serial mice, and GPS devices
    - Twisted Perspective Broker, a remote object protocol
