The Apache Software Foundation and The Apache HTTP Server Project are
pleased to announce the 3.1.3 release of mod_python. Mod_python 3.1.3 is
considered a stable release, suitable for production use.

Mod_python is an Apache HTTP Server module that embeds the Python language
interpreter within the server. With mod_python you can write web-based
applications in Python that will run many times faster than traditional
CGI and will have access to advanced features such as ability to maintain
objects between requests, access to httpd internals, content filters and
connection handlers.

This release includes several features not available in the previous
stable release (3.0.x). Some feature highlights:

* Native cookie support, including support for automatic cryptographic
  cookie signing and marshalling.

* Server-side sessions with memory or dbm-based storage and session
  locking support.

* PSP - a fast flex-based scanner which allows embedding Python code
  within HTML.

Mod_python 3.1.3 is released under the new Apache License version 2.0.
