Waitress WSGI server
Waitress is meant to be a production-quality pure-Python WSGI server with very acceptable performance. It has no dependencies except ones which live in the Python standard library. It runs on CPython on Unix and Windows under Python 2.6+ and Python 3.2. It is also known to run on PyPy 1.6.0 on UNIX. It supports HTTP/1.0 and HTTP/1.1.
For more information, see the “docs” directory of the Waitress package or http://docs.pylonsproject.org/projects/waitress/en/latest/ .
- Set up logging by calling logging.basicConfig() when serve is called (show tracebacks and other warnings to console by default).
- Disallow WSGI applications to set “hop-by-hop” headers (Connection, Transfer-Encoding, etc).
- Don’t treat 304 status responses specially in HTTP/1.1 mode.
- Remove out of date interfaces.py file.
- Normalize logging (all output is now sent to the waitress logger rather than in degenerate cases some output being sent directly to stderr).
- Support HTTP/1.1 Transfer-Encoding: chunked responses.
- Slightly better docs about logging.
- Initial release.
