    2525As of version 2.0, Twisted was split up into many subprojects, because it was getting too much to handle in a monolithic release, and we believe breaking the project into smaller chunks will help people understand the things they need to understand (There used to be a FAQ entry here asking Why is Twisted so big?). More information is available in the [http://twistedmatrix.com/projects/core/documentation/upgrades/2.0/split.html Split FAQ].

     27=== Why did the version number go from 2.5 to 8.x? ===
     28
     29Twisted has moved to a date based version number scheme.  The major version number now indicates the year the release was made in.  So all releases made in 2008 are 8.x, all releases in 2009 will be 9.x and so on.
     30
     31This is similar to, but less confusing than, Ubuntu's date based versioning scheme of YEAR.MONTH.  The Twisted versions still counts up from 0 for the minor number and patches.
