ChangeLog   [plain text]

2004-05-04  Jp Calderone  <>

	*, twisted.protocols.nntp: Moved back into trunk
	pending an alternate split-up strategy.

2004-05-04  Itamar Shtull-Trauring  <>

	* twisted.internet.reactor.listenUDP: transport.write() on UDP
	ports no longer supports unresolved hostnames (though deprecated
	support still exists).

2004-4-18  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* twisted/lore/, twisted/plugins.tml: Added Nevow
	support for lore. See docstring of twisted.lore.nevowlore.
2004-4-18  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	*, twisted.protocols.nntp: Moved into a third party
	package. Deprecated backwards-compatibility exists by importing
	from the third-party package if available.

2004-4-11  Paul Swartz <>

	* twisted.conch: refactored the Conch client to separate connecting
	to a server from user authentication from client-specific actions.

2004-03-23  Andrew Bennetts <>

	* twisted.protocols.http: Small optimisation to HTTP implementation.
	This changes return value of toChunk to a tuple of strings, rather
	than one string.

2004-4-3  Paul Swartz <>

	* twisted.python.lockfile: added lockfile support, based on
	* twisted.internet.unix.Port: added a wantPID kwarg.  If True, it
	checks for and gets a lockfile for the UNIX socket.
	* twisted.internet.unix.Connector: added a checkPID kwarg.  If True,
        it checks that the lockfile for the socket is current.

2004-03-23  Pavel Pergamenshchik  <>

	* twisted.internet.iocp: Support for Windows IO Completion Ports.
	Use with "--reactor=iocp" parameter to twistd or trial.

2004-03-20  Itamar Shtull-Trauring  <>

	* twisted.internet: getHost(), getPeer(), buildProtocol() etc.
	all use address objects from twisted.internet.address.

	* twisted/internet/ Connected UDP support is now part of
	the standard listenUDP-resulting UDP transport using a connect()

2004-03-18  Jp Calderone  <>

	* twisted/application/ Changed TimerService to
	log errors from the function it calls.

	* twisted/application/ Added test case
	for logging of exceptions from functions TimerService calls.

2004-03-07  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.2.1alpha1.

2004-03-03  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* twisted/web/ Fix UnsupportedMethod so that users'
	allowedMethods are actually honored.

	* twisted/web/ (Resource.render) If the resource has
	an 'allowedMethods' attribute, pass it to UnsupportedMethod.

2004-02-27  Andrew Bennetts  <>

	* twisted/internet/ Add consumeErrors flag to DeferredList.
	This takes care of the most common use-case for the recently
	deprecated addDeferred method.

2004-02-28  Dave Peticolas <>

	* install tap2rpm as a bin script

	* twisted/test/ Test Firebird db. Fix typos.

2004-02-27  Andrew Bennetts  <>

	* twisted/internet/ Deprecated DeferredList.addDeferred.  It
	isn't as useful as it looks, and can have surprising behaviour.

2004-02-25  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* twisted/protocols/ Fixed a bug in TCP support: It
	wouldn't process any messages after the first, causing AXFR
	queries to be totally broken (in addition to other problems in the
	implementation of AXFR).

	* twisted/names/ Fixed the AXFR client (lookupZone),
	thanks to DJB's wonderful documentation of the horribleness of

2004-02-25  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.2.0 final! Same as rc3.

2004-02-24  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.2.0rc3 (same as rc2, with cBanana bug

2004-02-19  Kevin Turner  <>

	* twisted/application/ (IService.disownServiceParent)
	(IServiceCollection.removeService): These may return Deferred if they
	have asynchronous side effects.

2004-02-18  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.2.0rc2. Brown-paper bag release bug.

2004-02-17  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.2.0rc1.

2004-02-13  Brian Warner  <>

	* doc/howto/faq.xhtml: add entry on transport.getPeer()

2004-01-31  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.1.2alpha2 (problem with Debian packaging).

2004-01-30  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.1.2alpha1.

2004-01-23  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* twisted/scripts/ trial now supports a --coverage
	option, requiring Python 2.3.3. Give it a directory name (relative
	to _trial_temp) to put code-coverage info in. It uses the stdlib
	'trace' module.

2004-01-21  Pavel Pergamenshchik  <>

	* twisted/protocols/ A new way to write protocols!
	Current state is encoded as a pair (func, len). As soon as len
	of data arrives, func is called with that amount of data.  New
	state is returned from func.
	* twisted/test/ Tests and an example, an
	Int32StringReceiver implementation.

2004-01-18  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* twisted/web/ The default render method of Resource
	now supports delegating to methods of the form "render_*" where
	"*" is the HTTP method that was used to make the
	request. Examples: request_GET, request_HEAD, request_CONNECT, and
	so on. This won't break any existing code - when people want to
	use the better API, they can stop overriding 'render' and instead
	override individual render_* methods.

2004-01-13  Itamar Shtull-Trauring  <>

	* twisted/web/ Beginning of client SOAP support.

2004-01-10  Andrew Bennetts <>

	* twisted/protocols/ Added support for partial downloads
	and uploads to FTPClient (see the offset parameter of retrieveFile).

2004-01-09  Jp Calderone  <>

	* twisted/protocols/ Add IMessageCopier interface to allow
	for optimized implementations of message copying.

2004-01-06  Brian Warner  <>

	* twisted/internet/ (PosixReactorBase.spawnProcess): add
	a 'childFDs' argument which allows the child's file descriptors to
	be arbitrarily mapped to parent FDs or pipes. This allows you to
	set up additional pipes into the child (say for a GPG passphrase
	or separate status information).

	* twisted/internet/ (Process): add childFDs, split out
	ProcessReader and ProcessWriter (so that Process itself is no
	longer also reading stdout).

	* twisted/internet/ (ProcessProtocol): add new
	childDataReceived and childConnectionLost methods, which default
	to invoking the old methods for backwards compatibility

	* twisted/test/ (FDTest): add test for childFDs
	mapping. Also add timeouts to most tests, and make all
	reactor.iterate() loops wait 10ms between iterations to avoid
	spamming the CPU quite so badly. Closes issue435.
	* twisted/test/ new child process for FDTest

	* doc/howto/process.xhtml: document childFDs argument, add example

2004-01-04  Itamar Shtull-Trauring  <>

	* twisted/internet/ logs all network traffic for
	TCP/SSL/Unix sockets, allowing traffic to be displayed.

2004-01-04  Dave Peticolas  <>

	* twisted/test/ test deleting rows not in cache

	* twisted/enterprise/ deleted rows don't have to be
	in cache

	* doc/examples/ use KeyFactory from row_util

	* doc/examples/ add KeyFactory

2003-12-31  Brian Warner  <>

	* twisted/internet/ (Deferred.setTimeout): if the Deferred
	has already been called, don't bother with the timeout. This
	happens when trial.util.deferredResult is used with a timeout
	argument and the Deferred was created by defer.succeed().
	* twisted/test/
	(DeferredTestCase.testImmediateSuccess2): test for same

2003-12-31  Jp Calderone  <>

	* twisted/protocols/ Client and server ident implementation
	* twisted/test/ Test cases for ident protocol

2003-12-29  Jp Calderone  <>

	* twisted/spread/ Changed PBServerFactory to use "protocol"
	instance attribute for Broker creation.

2003-12-26  Itamar Shtull-Trauring  <>

	* twisted/web/ display of tracebacks on web pages can
	now be disabled by setting displayTracebacks to False on the Site
	or by using applicable tap option. Woven does not yet use
	this attribute.

2003-12-23  Itamar Shtull-Trauring  <>

	* twisted/web/ if Host header is passed, use that
	instead of extracting from request URL.

2003-12-14  Dave Peticolas  <>

	* twisted/test/ Frederico Di Gregorio's patch
	adding a psycopg test case.

2003-12-09  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.1.1, based on rc4.

2003-12-06  Itamar Shtull-Trauring  <>

	* twisted/internet/ Added experimental wxPython reactor,
	which seems to work better than the twisted.internet.wxsupport.

2003-12-05  Paul Swartz  <>

	* twisted/conch/ssh/, added SFTPv3 support
	to the Conch server.

2003-12-04  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.1.1rc4, based on rc2. rc3 never happened!

2003-12-04  Brian Warner  <>

	* twisted/persisted/ (Persistent): fix misspelled class name,
	add compatibility binding to "Persistant" (sic).

	* twisted/application/ (Application): use Persistent

2003-12-03  Jp Calderone  <>

	IDLE command (RFC 2177).

2003-12-03  Jp Calderone  <>

	* twisted/python/ Added exception handling to
	log publishing code.  Observers which raise exceptions
	will now be removed from the observer list.

2003-12-02  Jp Calderone  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.1.1rc3.

2003-12-01  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	registerProducer method to immediately call the given producer's
	stopProducing method if the FileDescriptor is in the process of
	or has finished disconnecting.

2003-11-24  Jp Calderone  <>

	* twisted/protocols/ Fix incorrect behavior of closing the
	mailbox in response to an EXPUNGE command.

	* twisted/protocols/ Fixed incorrect generation of
	INTERNALDATE information.

2003-11-20  Jp Calderone  <>

	* twisted/conch/ssh/ use GMPy for faster math if it's

2003-10-24  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.1.0 final. Same codebase as rc2.

2003-10-24  Brian Warner  <>

	* doc/howto/test-standard.xhtml: Add section on how to clean up.

	* twisted/test/ improve post-test cleanup. Addresses
	problems seen in issue343.

	* twisted/internet/ (ReactorBase.callLater): prefix
	"internal" parameter names with an underscore, to avoid colliding
	with named parameters in the user's callback invocation. Closes
	(ReactorBase.callInThread): same
	* doc/howto/coding-standard.xhtml (Callback Arguments): explain why

2003-10-22  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.1.0rc2.

2003-10-21  Andrew Bennetts  <>

	* twisted/lore/, twisted/lore/,
	doc/howto/stylesheet.css: add a plain 'listing' class, for file
	listings that aren't python source or HTML.  This has slightly changed
	the classes in the generated HTML, so custom stylesheets may need

2003-10-16  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.1.0alpha3.

2003-10-16  Brian Warner  <>

	* doc/howto/pb-cred.xhtml: update for newcred. Closes issue172.

2003-10-15  Brian Warner  <>

	* twisted/internet/ add optional debug code, enabled with
	base.DelayedCall.debug=True . If active, the call stack which
	invoked reactor.callLater will be recorded in each DelayedCall. If
	an exception happens when the timer function is run, the creator
	stack will be logged in addition to the usual log.deferr().

	* twisted/internet/ add some optional debug code, enabled
	with defer.Deferred.debug=True . If active, it will record a stack
	trace when the Deferred is created, and another when it is first
	invoked. AlreadyCalledErrors will be given these two stack traces,
	making it slightly easier to find the source of the problem.

2003-10-15  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.1.0alpha2 (alpha1 was dead in the water).

2003-10-15  Brian Warner  <>

	* remove cReactor/ to the sandbox. Closes issue318.

2003-10-14  Itamar Shtull-Trauring  <>

	* twisted/web/ registry no longer has support for
	getting services based on their interfaces.

2003-10-14  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.1.0alpha1.

2003-10-13  Bob Ippolito  <>

	Removed, replaced by doc/examples/Cocoa cfreactor demos.

	* doc/examples/Cocoa:
	Moved from sandbox/etrepum/examples/PyObjC, cleaned up.

	* twisted/internet/cfsupport, twisted/internet/
	Moved from sandbox/etrepum, cleaned up.

	* twisted/application/
	Added 'cf' -> twisted.internet.cfreactor to reactorTypes

	sys.platform=='darwin' - build cfsupport, do not build cReactor.

    Changed URL of pimp repository to shorter version.

2003-10-12  Jp Calderone  <>

	* bin/tktwistd, twisted/scripts/, doc/man/tktwistd.1:

2003-10-12  Itamar Shtull-Trauring  <>

	detailed tracebacks over the wire unless the "unsafeTracebacks"
	attribute is set of the factory.

2003-10-02  Jp Calderone  <>

	*, twisted/test/, twisted/python/_c_dir.c:
	Removed _c_dir extension module for portability and maintenance

2003-10-03  Moshe Zadka <>

	* twisted/spread/ twisted/test/ Fix issue

2003-10-01  Brian Warner  <>

	* twisted/web/ (HTTPDownloader): accept either a filename
	or a file-like object (it must respond to .write and .close, and
	partial requests will not be used with file-like objects). errback
	the deferred if an IOError occurs in .open, .write. or .close,
	usually something like "permission denied" or "file system full".
	Closes issue234.
	* twisted/test/ (WebClientTestCase.write): verify
	that the errback gets called

	* twisted/scripts/ (run): add --until-failure option to
	re-run the test until something fails. Closes issue87.

2003-09-30  Brian Warner  <>

	* twisted/test/ (testOurServerOpenSSHClient): replace with .iterate calls: when using .run, exceptions in
	the server cause a hang.

2003-9-29  Moshe Zadka <>

	* twisted/tap/ twisted/plugins.tml: remove procmon
	tap. It was crufty and hard to port properly to new application.

2003-09-29  Brian Warner  <>

	* twisted/scripts/ (Options.opt_reactor): make trial
	accept the same reactor-name abbreviations as twistd does. Closes
	(top): add test-case-name tag

2003-09-19  Jp Calderone  <>

	* twisted/names/ Instantiation of theResolver global made
	lazy.  As a result importing it directly will now fail if it has not
	yet been created.  It should not be used directly anymore; instead,
	use the module-scope lookup methods, or instantiate your own

	* twisted/mail/ Instantiation of MXCalculator made

2003-09-18  Stephen Thorne  <>

	* twisted/web/ Removed dependancy on twisted.web.widgets, and

	* twisted/web/ Un-gobble the path segment that a vhost eats
	when the resource we're wrapping isLeaf. Potentially closes issue125.

2003-09-12  Itamar Shtull-Trauring  <>

	* twisted/web/ lenient mode correctly handles <script>
	tags with CDATA or comments protecting the code (closes issue #231).

2003-08-19  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.0.7alpha5.

2003-08-18  Jp Calderone <>

	* twisted/protocols/ Remove support code for old versions
	of IMailbox.fetch(); also change the interface once again (no
	backwards compat this time) to require sequence numbers to be
	returned, not just whatever the MessageSet spit out.

2003-08-16  Dave Peticolas  <>

	* twisted/test/ update for enterprise

	* twisted/enterprise/ use dbpool directly

	* twisted/enterprise/ deprecate KeyFactory and StatementBatch

	crufty bits of ConnectionPool API.

2003-08-11  Dave Peticolas  <>

	* twisted/enterprise/ fix docs

2003-08-08  Donovan Preston  <>

	* Added getAllPatterns API to Widget, which returns all nodes
	which have the given pattern name.

	* Refactored List widget to use getAllPatterns, so you can have
	more than one listHeader, listFooter, and emptyList node.

2003-08-08  Dave Peticolas  <>

	* twisted/internet/ remove unused internal function.

	* twisted/internet/ remove unused internal function.
	clean up imports.

2003-08-07  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* .: Releasing Twisted 1.0.7alpha4.

2003-08-06  Donovan Preston <>

	* Major woven optimizations.

	* Removal of inspect-based hacks allowing backwards compatibility
	with the old IModel interface. All your IModel methods should take
	the request as the first argument now.

	* Default to non-case-preserving when importing Woven templates,
	and case-insensitive microdom. If you are using getPattern or
	getAttribute in any of your woven code, you will have to make sure
	to pass all lowercase strings.

	* Removal of __eq__ magic methods in microdom. This was just
	slowing woven down far too much, since without it python can
	use identity when looking for a node in replaceChild. This means
	you will have to explicitly use the isEqualToDocument or
	isEqualToNode call if you are testing for the equality of microdom

	* Removal of usage of hasAttribute, getAttribute, removeAttribute
	from woven for a speed gain at the expense of tying woven slightly
	closer to microdom. Nobody will notice.

	* Improved getPattern semantics thanks to a patch by Rich
	Cavenaugh. getPattern will now not look for a pattern below any
	nodes which have model= or view= directives on them.

2003-08-04  Dave Peticolas  <>

	* twisted/python/ use parameter docs if handler
	method has none. fixes bug displaying trial help.

2003-07-31  Brian Warner  <>

	* twisted/python/ (FilePath.__getstate__): allow
	FilePath objects to survive unpersisting.

	* add twisted.xish

2003-07-28  Itamar Shtull-Trauring  <>

	* twisted/spread/ (PBClientFactory): a new, superior API for
	starting PB connections. Create a factory, do a
	reactor.connectTCP/SSL() etc., then factory.getPerspective().

	interface has been changed to accept only a MessageSet and a uid
	argument and to return an IMessage implementor.

2003-07-24  Brian Warner  <>

	* twisted/internet/cReactor/cDelayedCall.c: implement .active and
	.getTime methods

	* twisted/test/ (InterfaceTestCase.wake): remove
	reactor.initThreads() call. This is a private method which is
	triggered internally by the current reactor when threadable.init
	is called. It does not need to be called independently, and not
	all reactors implement this particular method.

	* twisted/test/ shuffle test cases, add timeouts
	to avoid hanging tests. Added (disabled) test to trigger cReactor
	hang (but unfortunately it fails under the default reactor)

2003-07-23  Dave Peticolas  <>

	* twisted/internet/ avoid top-level reactor import

2003-07-23  Jp Calderone  <>

	* twisted/protocols/ The fetch method of the IMailbox
	interface has been changed to accept a list of (non-string)
	objects representing the requested message parts.  Less knowledge
	of the IMAP4 protocol should be required to properly implement
	the interface.

2003-07-23  Dave Peticolas  <>

	* twisted/test/ more tests

	* twisted/conch/ssh/ (signData_dsa): Force DSS signature
	blobs to be 20 bytes long. About 1% of the time, the sig numbers

	* twisted/test/ (EchoProtocol): try to close
	occasional test failure. Do transport.closeStdin() instead of
	loseConnection() because the child still has data to write (to

2003-05-19  Christopher Armstrong  <>

	* twisted/web/ Added two new methods to Request objects:
	rememberRootURL and getRootURL. Calling rememberRootURL will store
	the already-processed part of the URL on the request, and calling
	getRootURL will return it. This is so you can more easily link to
	disparate parts of your web application.

	* twisted/web/woven/{page,widgets}.py: Updated Woven to take
	advantage of previously-mentioned Request changes. You can now say
	`appRoot = True' in the Page subclass that is instantiated by your
	.rpy (for example), and then use a RootRelativeLink widget
	(exactly the same way you use a Link widget) to get a link
	relative to your root .rpy.

	* twisted/test/ (PosixProcessTestCasePTY): skip
	testStdio, testStderr, and testProcess. PTYs do not have separate
	stdout/stderr, so the tests just aren't relevant. testProcess
	might be, but it requires support for closing the write side
	separately from the read side, and I don't think our processPTY
	can do that quite yet.

	* twisted/test/ (LocalRemoteAddressTestCase): iterate
	harder. some systems might not connect to localhost before
	iterate() is called, flunking the test

	* twisted/internet/ major fixes. Use different

	internally). doIteration now calls gtk.main_iteration in a
	non-blocking way. Attempt to emulate doIteration(delay!=0) by
	using time.sleep().

	* twisted/internet/ same fixes as for gtk2reactor.
	Instead of a pygtk bug we've got the limited gtk_input_add API,

	downloadPage now accept keyword arguments for method, postdata,
	and headers.  A Content-Length header will be automatically provided
	for the given postdata if one isn't already present.  Note that
	postdata is passed through raw; it is the user's responsibility to

	* Removes View's dependency on DOMTemplate as a base
	class, in preparation for deprecation of DOMTemplate
	(all of the same semantics are now directly implemented
	in View). As a result, View has no base classes, making
	the inheritance chain cleaner.

	* Stores the namespace stacks (model, view, and controller
	name lookup chain) in the View directly, and each widget
	gets an immutable reference to it's position in the lookup
	chain when it is created, making re-rendering Widgets more

	* Represents the namespace stacks as a cons-like tuple
	structure instead of mutable python lists, reducing
	confusion and list-copying; instead of copying the current
	stack lists each time a Widget is created, it just gets a
	reference to the current tuples for each of the stacks

2002-04-17  Donovan Preston <>

	* Major changes to the capabilities of the static web server, in an
	attempt to be able to use Twisted instead of Zope at work; my plan is to
	capture many of the conveniences of Zope without the implicitness and
	complexity that comes with working around implicit behavior when it fails.

	1) .trp and .rpy support in the static web server:
	Very simple handlers to allow you to easily add Resource objects
		dynamically to a running server, by merely changing files on the
	An .rpy file will be executed, and if a "resource" variable exists upon the
		execution's completion, it will be returned.
	A .trp file (twisted resource pickle) will be unpickled and returned. An
		object unpickled from a .trp should either implement IResource itself,
		or have a registered adapter in twisted.python.components.

	2) Acquisition:
	As resources are being looked up by repeated calls to getChild, this
		change creates instances of
		twisted.spread.refpath.PathReferenceAcquisitionContext and puts
		them in the request as "request.pathRef"
	Any method that has an instance of the request can then climb up
		the parent tree using "request.pathRef['parentRef']['parentRef']
	PathReferenceAcquisitionContext instances can be dereferenced to the
		actual object using getObject
	Convenience method: "locate"   returns a PathReference to first place
		in the parent heirarchy a name is seen
	Convenience method: "acquire"  somewhat like Zope acquisition;
		mostly untested, may need fixes

	3) DOM-based templating system:
	A new templating system that allows python scripts to use the DOM
		to manipulate the HTML node tree. Loosely based on Enhydra.
	Subclasses of twisted.web.domtemplate.DOMTemplate can override
		the templateFile attribute and the getTemplateMethods method;
		ultimately, while templateFile is being parsed, the methods
		specified will be called with instances of xml.dom.mindom.Node
		as the first parameter, allowing the python code to manipulate
		(see for an example)

2002-04-17  Chris Armstrong  <>

	* twisted/web/, twisted/tap/ Added a new feature
	that allows requests for /foo to return /foo.extension, which is
	disabled by default. If you want a --static webserver that
	uses this feature, use 'mktap web --static <dir> --allow_ignore_ext'.

	* twisted/tap/ Also switched --static to --path; it doesn't
	make sense to call something that automatically executes cgis, epys,
	rpys, php, etc., "static". :-)

	* HTTP 1.1 now supports persistent and pipelined connections.

	User-visible API changes:
	- Request.content is now a file-like object, instead of a string.
	- Functions that incorrectly used Request.received instead of
	  Request.getAllHeaders() will break.
