It's an oversight.

I don't know how the PyPI announcement was done (although I'd love
to!), but I think you can announce new versions without
decommissioning old ones.

As for the twistedmatrix.com website, I can fix that so that 9.0.0 is
easy-installable, but I don't know how. Let me know & I'll get it
