waitress 1.0.1

Waitress WSGI server

Latest Version: 1.1.0

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 2.7+ and Python 3.3+. 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 .

1.0.1 (2016-10-22)


  • 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
  • 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

1.0.0 (2016-08-31)


  • 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 for more information.


  • Python 2.6 is no longer supported.


  • IPv6 support

  • Waitress is now able to listen on multiple sockets, including IPv4 and IPv6. Instead of passing in a host/port combination you now provide waitress with a space delineated list, and it will create as many sockets as required.

    from waitress import serve
    serve(wsgiapp, listen=' [::]:9090 *:6543')
