I'm happy to announce that Gevent 0.13.1 is released.

What is it?

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:

    * Fast event loop based on libevent (epoll on Linux, kqueue on FreeBSD).
    * Lightweight execution units based on greenlet.
    * API that re-uses concepts from the Python standard library (for
example there are Events and Queues).
    * Cooperative sockets with ssl support.
    * DNS queries performed through libevent-dns.
    * Monkey patching utility to get 3rd party modules to become cooperative.
    * Fast WSGI server based on libevent-http.


What's new in 0.13.1?

Gevent 0.13.1 is a maintenance release, fixing a number of bugs in
various modules. Read the full changelog here:
