Ladies, gentlemen,

About 4 months after our first pre-release of the year, here comes
Twisted 12.1.0pre1. You can find the tarballs to test here:


Among the 106 tickets closed during that timeframe, you can find:

 * 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.

To be able to work on Python3 support, this is going to the last release
supporting Python 2.5.

Please give it a round of tests to help make a great release!
