gevent 0.13.0 released

July 14, 2010 1 comment

After two beta versions, the final version of gevent 0.13.0 has been released – you can get it from PyPI.  If you don’t know what gevent is, read the introduction.

The full list of changes is available in the changelog. The major new additions are:

  • gevent.server module to help you implement TCP and SSL servers. Check out the example.
  • gevent.pywsgi — an alternative implementation of WSGI server, based on gevent.server. Unlike libevent-based gevent.wsgi it supports streaming, SSL, keep-alive connections.
  • greenlet’s sharing of exc_info is worked around in this version.
  • gevent.local is now working properly.
  • socket.sendall() function no longer wastes memory by creating substrings of data.
  • fixed reference leaks in core module.

Thanks to Ralf Schmitt, Ted Suzman, Luigi Pugnetti, Randall Leeds, Daniele Varrazzo, Nicholas Piël, Örjan Persson, Uriel Katz.

gevent 0.12.0 is released

February 5, 2010 Comments off

Version 0.12.0 of gevent has been released on PyPI. Install it with

easy_install -U gevent

  • The major new feature is a gevent.ssl module, that provides cooperative implementation of the standard ssl module. It does not require any additional extensions on Python ≥ 2.6. It also works on 2.4 and 2.5 if ssl package is installed. The old, PyOpenSSL-based implementation of SSL objects is still available, but the new version is the preferred way now.
  • The library now compiles and passes most of the relevant tests on Windows. It’s still has a few rough edges (e.g. Ctrl-C is not working), so it should be considered experimental.
  • The socket object gained some performance improvements as well as a number of bugfixes.
  • Several incompatibilities of wsgi module with the WSGI spec have been fixed.

Read the details in the changelog.
