Twisted Conch project is an SSHv2 implementation written in Python. SSH is a protocol designed to allow remote access to shells and commands, but it is generic enough to allow everything from TCP forwarding to generic filesystem access.

Since conch is written in Python, it interfaces well with other Python projects, such as Imagination. Conch also includes a implementations of the telnet and vt102 protocols, as well as support for rudamentary line editing behaviors.

A new implementation of Twisted's Manhole application is also included, featuring server-side input history and interactive syntax coloring.

Conch is available under the MIT Free Software licence.

What's New in This Release:
The in-memory terminal emulator's "expect" functionality now supports timeouts.
The SSH server and client are now approximately five times faster for bulk-data transfers.
