On behalf of Twisted Matrix Laboratories, I am pleased to announce the
release of Twisted 12.1.

107 tickets are closed by this release, with the following highlights:

 * The revival of the kqueue reactor for BSD platforms.

 * epoll is now the default reactor under Linux after a fix to handle
files on stdin/stdout.

 * New reactors supporting GTK3 and GObject-Introspection.

 * Several enhancements regarding file descriptors passing: systemd
support for servers, ability to send and receive file descriptors for
IReactorUNIX and an AMP argument using that feature.

 * Support for IPv6 literals in connectTCP.

 * Persistent connections support for the new HTTP client.

This is the last Twisted release supporting Python 2.5.
