   An update that has two recommended fixes can now be


   This update for python fixes the following issues:


   - Add patch Always-treat-SSLError-timeouts-as-socket-timeouts-24.
   - Add fdupes to specfile
   - Sending empty messages no longer hangs. Instead an empty message is sent
     correctly. (bsc#1123054)
   - Fixed compatibility issues in UTF-8 encoding behavior between Py2/Py3
   - Fix implicit conversion from bytes to string on the connection
     object. (Issue #155) This issue has caused Celery to crash on connection
      to RabbitMQ.
   - Fix random delays in task execution. This is a bug that caused
     performance issues due to polling timeouts that occur when receiving
     incomplete AMQP frames.
   - Calling "conn.collect()" multiple times will no longer raise an
     "AttributeError" when no channels exist.
   - Fix compatibility code for Python 2.7.6.
   - When running in Windows, py-amqp will no longer use the unsupported TCP
     option TCP_MAXSEG.
   - Added support for setting the SNI hostname header.  The SSL protocol
     version is now set to SSLv23
   - Authentication mechanisms were refactored to be more modular. GSSAPI
     authentication is now supported.
   - Do not reconnect on collect.


   - RabbitMQ: Ensured safer encoding of queue arguments.
   - Added fallback to :func:``uuid.uuid5`` in :func:``generate_oid`` if
   - Added Python 3.6 to CI testing
   - Fixed bug around modifying dictionary size while iterating over it
