It is my pleasure to announce the release of Python 2.7.13, the latest bugfix release of the venerable Python 2.7 series. This release incorporates conservative bugfixes as well as improvements to keep Python 2.7 running on modern systems.
The only change from the 2.7.13 release candidate 2 weeks ago is the revert of a change that broke backwards compatibility with some rare C extension patterns. See https://bugs.python.org/issue5322 for more details.
Source archives and binaries are available at https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-2713/
Please report bugs to our tracker: https://bugs.python.org/
2.7.14 will appear mid-2017.
All the best in the new year, Benjamin Peterson 2.7 release manager
