I am happy to announce version 0.16.0 of Gear has been released.
Notable Changes ---------------
* The testsuite has been updated to support newer OpenSSL fixing issues like https://storyboard.openstack.org/#!/story/2009250.
* TLS version negotiation is improved to prefer the newest version of TLS supported by both client and server excluding TLS 1.3.
* Connections to gearman servers are now randomly distributed which should more evenly distribute load.
* Timeout processing is improved to avoid a situation where a connection timeout could deadlock the client.
As always, the latest version of gear is available from PyPI:
