Update to 0.6.3. Note that 0.6.1 really does not work with Twisted in
* Release 0.6.3 (05-Jan-2012)
** Compatibility Fixes
This release really is compatible with Twisted-11.1.0 . The previous Foolscap
release (0.6.2), despite the changes described below, suffered mild
incompatibilites with the new TLS code in the final Twisted-11.1.0 release.
The most common symptom is a DirtyReactorError in unit tests that use
Tub.stopService() in their tearDown() method (to coordinate shutdown and
cleanup). Another symptom is tests overlapping with one another, causing
This incompatibility did not generally affect normal operation, but only
impacted unit tests.
** Other Changes
The Debian packaging tools in misc/ were removed, as they were pretty stale.
These days, both Debian and Ubuntu make their own Foolscap packages.
* Release 0.6.2 (15-Oct-2011)
** Compatibility Fixes
Foolscap-0.6.2 will be compatible with future versions of Twisted (>11.0.0).
The 0.6.1 release will not: a TLS change went into Twisted trunk recently
(after the 11.0.0 release) which broke Foolscap 0.6.1 and earlier.
This release also fixes a minor incompatibility with newer versions of
OpenSSL (0.9.8o was ok, 1.0.0d was not), which caused errors in the test
suite (but normal runtime operation) on e.g. Ubuntu 11.10 "Oneiric".
** Git-Over-Foolscap Tools
The doc/examples/ directory contains two executables (git-foolscap and
git-remote-pb) which, when placed in your $PATH, make it easy to use Foolscap
to access a Git repository. These use the flappserver/flappclient tools and
let you build a FURL that provides read-only or read-write access to a single
repository. This is somewhat like providing SSH access to a repo, but with a
much smaller scope: the client will only be able to manipulate the one
repository, and gets no other authority on the target system. See the tool's
inline comments for usage instructions.
** Minor Fixes
Using 'flappserver upload-file FILE1 FILE2 FILE3..' (with three or more
files) now correctly uploads all files: previously it only managed to upload
the first and last.
'flappserver' argument handling was improved slightly. A workaround was added
to handle a Twisted stdio-closing bug which affected flappserver's
run-command function and broke the git-foolscap tool. Several changes were
made for the benefit of Windows: log filenames all use hyphens (not colons),
log filtering tools tolerate the lack of atomic-rename filesystem operations,
and some unixisms in the test suite were removed.
The Tub.setLogGathererFURL() method can now accept a list (iterable) of log
gatherer FURLs, not just a single one.
