On behalf of Twisted Matrix Laboratories, I am pleased to announce the
release of Twisted 11.1.

Highlights of the 185 tickets closed include:

  * The poll reactor as default where applicable, instead of select

  * A new SSL implementation only relying on OpenSSL for cryptography,
    (not I/O) making it more robust.

  * Several improvements to the fresh HTTP/1.1 client implementation,
    including proxy and cookie support.

  * My personal favorite: a new howto has been published on test-driven
    development with Twisted.

  * A special mention to the new abortConnection support on TCP and SSL
    connections, heroically pushed by Itamar and Jean-Paul, and the
    oldest ticket closed by this release.

This is the last release supporting Python 2.4 (the support on Windows stopped with 11.0).
