I'm pleased to announce the release of Foolscap-0.6.2, available from
PyPi[1], the Foolscap home page[2], and fine retail establishments

    Foolscap is a remote object-messaging system, built on top of
    Twisted and OpenSSL. It behaves very similar to Perspective
    Broker, but adds an object-capability security model (FURLs
    point at remote objects), more flexible serialization, and
    third-party references. Foolscap also provides support tools for
    developing distributed applications, including advanced "flight
    recorder" logging facilities, an eventual-send primitive, and
    command-line remote-service-invocation tools like "upload-file"
    and "run-command".

This release fixes an incompatibility with current Twisted trunk, which
will cause problems when the next Twisted release comes out.
(Foolscap-0.6.1 is compatible with Twisted-11.0.0, but not with trunk;
Foolscap-0.6.2 is compatible with both). It also adds some tools to run
git-over-foolscap, in case you want a more object-capability-centric way
to delegate Git repository access.

The release is signed with the new foolscap-release-signing-key[3],
0xAF1B4A2A. SHA256 hashes of the tarballs are:
