- update to version 1.1.0:
+ Waitress now has a __main__ and thus may be called with "python
+ Waitress no longer allows lowercase HTTP verbs. This change was
made to fall in line with most HTTP servers. See
+ When receiving non-ascii bytes in the request URL, waitress will
no longer abruptly close the connection, instead returning a 400
Bad Request. See https://github.com/Pylons/waitress/pull/162 and

- Update to 1.0.2
* Python 3.6 is now officially supported in Waitress
* Add a work-around for libc issue on Linux not following the
documented standards. If getnameinfo() fails because of DNS not
being available it should return the IP address instead of the
reverse DNS entry, however instead getnameinfo() raises. We
catch this, and ask getnameinfo() for the same information
again, explicitly asking for IP address instead of reverse
- Implement single-spec version.
- Fix source URL.

- update to 1.0.1:
- IPv6 support on Windows was broken due to missing constants in the socket
module. This has been resolved by setting the constants on Windows if they
are missing. See https://github.com/Pylons/waitress/issues/138
- A ValueError was raised on Windows when passing a string for the port, on
Windows in Python 2 using service names instead of port numbers doesn't work
with `getaddrinfo`. This has been resolved by attempting to convert the port
number to an integer, if that fails a ValueError will be raised. See
- Removed `AI_ADDRCONFIG` from the call to `getaddrinfo`, this resolves an
issue whereby `getaddrinfo` wouldn't return any addresses to `bind` to on
hosts where there is no internet connection but localhost is requested to be
bound to. See https://github.com/Pylons/waitress/issues/131 for more
- disable tests. need network access.

- update to 0.9.0:
- Building on the changes made in pull request 117, add in checking for line
feed/carriage return HTTP Response Splitting in the status line, as well as
the key of a header. See https://github.com/Pylons/waitress/pull/124 and
- Waitress will no longer accept headers or status lines with
newline/carriage returns in them, thereby disallowing HTTP Response
- FileBasedBuffer and more important ReadOnlyFileBasedBuffer no longer report
False when tested with bool(), instead always returning True, and becoming
more iterator like.
- Call prune() on the output buffer at the end of a request so that it doesn't
continue to grow without bounds.

- update to 0.8.9:
- Fix tests under Windows. NB: to run tests under Windows, you cannot run
"setup.py test" or "setup.py nosetests". Instead you must run ``python.exe
- c "import nose; nose.main()"``. If you try to run the tests using the
normal method under Windows, each subprocess created by the test suite will
attempt to run the test suite again. See
https://github.com/nose-devs/nose/issues/407 for more information.
- Give the WSGI app_iter generated when ``wsgi.file_wrapper`` is used
(ReadOnlyFileBasedBuffer) a ``close`` method. Do not call ``close`` on an
instance of such a class when it's used as a WSGI app_iter, however. This is
part of a fix which prevents a leakage of file descriptors; the other part of
the fix was in WebOb
- Allow trusted proxies to override ``wsgi.url_scheme`` via a request header,
``X_FORWARDED_PROTO``. Allows proxies which serve mixed HTTP / HTTPS
requests to control signal which are served as HTTPS. See
- Fix some cases where the creation of extremely large output buffers (greater
than 2GB, suspected to be buffers added via ``wsgi.file_wrapper``) might
cause an OverflowError on Python 2. See
- When the ``url_prefix`` adjustment starts with more than one slash, all
slashes except one will be stripped from its beginning. This differs from
older behavior where more than one leading slash would be preserved in
- If a client somehow manages to send an empty path, we no longer convert the
empty path to a single slash in ``PATH_INFO``. Instead, the path remains
empty. According to RFC 2616 section "5.1.2 Request-URI", the scenario of a
client sending an empty path is actually not possible because the request URI
portion cannot be empty.
- If the ``url_prefix`` adjustment matches the request path exactly, we now
compute ``SCRIPT_NAME`` and ``PATH_INFO`` properly. Previously, if the
``url_prefix`` was ``/foo`` and the path received from a client was ``/foo``,
we would set *both* ``SCRIPT_NAME`` and ``PATH_INFO`` to ``/foo``. This was
incorrect. Now in such a case we set ``PATH_INFO`` to the empty string and
we set ``SCRIPT_NAME`` to ``/foo``. Note that the change we made has no
effect on paths that do not match the ``url_prefix`` exactly (such as
``/foo/bar``); these continue to operate as they did. See
- Preserve header ordering of headers with the same name as per RFC 2616. See
- When waitress receives a ``Transfer-Encoding: chunked`` request, we no longer
send the ``TRANSFER_ENCODING`` nor the ``HTTP_TRANSFER_ENCODING`` value to
the application in the environment. Instead, we pop this header. Since we
cope with chunked requests by buffering the data in the server, we also know
when a chunked request has ended, and therefore we know the content length.
We set the content-length header in the environment, such that applications
effectively never know the original request was a T-E: chunked request; it
will appear to them as if the request is a non-chunked request with an
- Cope with the fact that the ``Transfer-Encoding`` value is case-insensitive.
- When the ``--unix-socket-perms`` option was used as an argument to
``waitress-serve``, a ``TypeError`` would be raised. See

- update to 0.8.7:
- The HTTP version of the response returned by waitress when it catches an
exception will now match the HTTP request version.
- Fix: CONNECTION header will be HTTP_CONNECTION and not CONNECTION_TYPE
* Tue Aug 13 2013 firstname.lastname@example.org
- update to 0.8.6:
- Do alternate type of checking for UNIX socket support, instead of checking
for platform == windows.
- Functional tests now use multiprocessing module instead of subprocess module,
speeding up test suite and making concurrent execution more reliable.
- Runner now appends the current working directory to ``sys.path`` to support
running WSGI applications from a directory (i.e., not installed in a

- update to 0.8.5:
- Fix runner multisegment imports in some Python 2 revisions (see
- For compatibility, WSGIServer is now an alias of TcpWSGIServer. The
signature of BaseWSGIServer is now compatible with WSGIServer pre-0.8.4.
- Add a command-line runner called ``waitress-serve`` to allow Waitress
to run WSGI applications without any addional machinery. This is
essentially a thin wrapper around the ``waitress.serve()`` function.
- Allow parallel testing (e.g., under ``detox`` or ``nosetests --processes``)
using PID-dependent port / socket for functest servers.
- Fix integer overflow errors on large buffers. Thanks to Marcin Kuzminski
for the patch. See: https://github.com/Pylons/waitress/issues/22
- Add support for listening on Unix domain sockets.
