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.
