On behalf of the gevent development team and the gevent contributors, I'm very pleased to announce the release of gevent 1.3.0. 

gevent ( is a coroutine-based library that uses greenlets to provide a high-level synchronous API on top of the libev or libuv event loop. While the primary focus is on networking (providing a drop-in replacement for the standard library socket and ssl modules), gevent also provides many features to support coroutine-based programming, such as events, queues and task pools. It runs on POSIX platforms (e.g., macOS and Linux) as well as Windows.

gevent 1.3.0 introduces support for PyPy on Windows, the libuv event loop, a pure-Python name resolver based on dnspython, and enhanced debugging and monitoring. It also features improved performance of many core classes. Pre-releases of 1.3.0 have been in production use for several months.
