gevent is a coroutine-based Python networking library that uses
greenlet to provide
a high-level synchronous API on top of libevent event loop.

Features include:

    * convenient API around greenlets
    * familiar synchronization primitives (gevent.event, gevent.queue)
    * socket module that cooperates
    * WSGI server on top of libevent-http
    * DNS requests done through libevent-dns
    * monkey patching utility to get pure Python modules to cooperate

0.11.1 fixes a few bugs:

* Fixed bug in function. Passing non-empty list of
write descriptors used to cause this function to fail.
* Changed to go ahead with the compilation even if the actual
version of libevent cannot be determined (version 1.x.x is assumed in
that case).
* Fixed wsgi‘s start_response to recognize exc_info argument.
* Fixed to look for libevent.dylib rather than .so on Darwin platforms.

Thanks to Ludvig Ericson for contributing the last two items.
