   Last week, someone asked for an example of a Jabber client using Twisted
   libs, darryl posted a reply this week. darryl posted another example using

   Itamar gave a more generic explanation on how to debug general python code

   Richard Livsey asked why his IRC bot gets disconnected without any
   possibility of reconnection after sending too much data to the server.
   Timothee Besset replied he should read the IRC RFCs, that explains that his
   IRC bot was banned (flooding protection) and that he should use a rate
   limiting algorithm which doesn't yet exist in Twisted IRCClient
   implementation. Andrew Bennetts answered that, actually, there
   is a rate limiting method, but it is more a delay than a rate limitation
   which solved Richard's problem.


 * **Twisted 1.1.1**: Itamar announced Twisted 1.1.1 as the official new
    stable release 
    The changes are mainly bugfixes and minor improvements. MSN8P support in
    the MSN protocol has been updated and Conch SSH agent client now supports
    SSH auth agent.

 * **Quotient 0.8.8**: A new version (0.8.8) of Quotient
   (http://www.divmod.org/) has been released.
   The pace of releases is getting faster each week. In this release (except
   from bugfixes), the database has been simplified and throttling tools have
   been added. To show that Quotient can be used as a framework not just for
   email, a project planning tool has been started (Anvil).

Cool Thing of the Week

 * **Twisted-web split** A new mailing list
 (http://twistedmatrix.com/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/twisted-web and stored on
   NNTP gmane.org) as well as a new IRC channel
 (irc://irc.freenode.net/#twisted.web) who focus on twisted.web and
   woven/nevow part of Twisted.

Current releases

  * Twisted: 1.1.1 (released 2003-12-10)
  * Quotient: 0.8.8 (released 2003-12-12)
  * Twisted Java: 0.6.1 (released 2003-12-02)
