We are proud to announce the PythonQt 1.0 major release,
a dynamic and lightweight script binding of the Qt4
framework to the Python language.
Various aspects have been improved since the initial release both on
functionality and performance side. A number of examples have been added
to make it easier to get started.
Details on the new functionality can be found at:
So if you want to embedd Python into your Qt application,
PythonQt is the way to go!

`Movable Python <http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/movpy/>`_ has been
updated to Python 2.5.1. Is is included in the Python 2.5 and Movable
Python Mega-Pack groups.
Movable Python can be downloaded from:
* `Movable Python Groups Page <http://voidspace.tradebit.com/
Movable Python is a distribution of Python, for Windows, that can be
used without being installed. It doesn't interfere with any Python
installation on machines it is used on, and can be run from a USB
flash drive. The user interface can be used to launch programs with
any executable, you may never need to use the command line again.
Versions are available for Python 2.2, 2.3, 2.4 and 2.5. The Mega-
Pack includes all of these versions, and can be used for testing
programs with multiple versions of Python (including IronPython) from
a single interface.
The new distribution of Python 2.5.1 includes updated versions of the
following extension packages:
* `wxPython 126.96.36.199 <http://wxpython.org>`_
* `PyEnchant 1.3.0 <http://pyenchant.sourceforge.net/>`_
* `Pythonutils 0.3.0 <http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/
I have updated the version of Python to 2.5.1-1. The tarballs should be
available on a Cygwin mirror near you shortly.
The following are the only notable changes since the previous release:
o upgrade to Python 2.5.1
o change python.exe to be a copy of python2.5.exe (instead of a
symlink) to facilitate invoking directly from Windows tools
Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming
language. If interested, see the Python web site for more details:
Please read the README file:
since it covers requirements, installation, known issues, etc.
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your
system. Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: cygwin(a)cygwin.com .

I have just uploaded my dfa-0.1 module to PyPi. I have seen similar
or equivalent code in other packages (e.g. FSM in pexpect) but it
was not as general or just used internally and not documented.
This is my first module and nearly first python code, so please
critique the style and API that I can learn something. Thanks.
This line is completely ham.
I'm happy to announce that ActivePython 188.8.131.52 is now available for
