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:
