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

Source archives and binaries are available at

Please report bugs to our tracker:

2.7.14 will appear mid-2017.

All the best in the new year,
Benjamin Peterson
2.7 release manager
