This is the first announcement of a release of Sprinkle, a messaging
broker written in Python.
Sprinkle implements the STOMP protocol
Sprinkle is very simple and lightweight. I believe it is fully
functional, but I need help testing it so I can make it suitable for
an enterprise environment. In this early phase, you can get Sprinkle
as a development snapshot: sprinkle-2007-07-01.
Asynchronous messaging is receiving renewed interest from developers.
Let's give Python a simple, effective, and trusted messaging solution.
The code is distributed under version 3 of the GPL, and runs on Unix-
like platforms. Python 2.3.4 or later is required.
I am pleased to announce the stable version 2.10.5 of the Python bindings
The new release is available from ftp.gnome.org and its mirrors
as soon as its synced correctly:
GTK+ is a toolkit for developing graphical applications that run on
systems such as Linux, Windows and MacOS X. It provides a comprehensive set
of GUI widgets, can display Unicode bidi text. It links into the Gnome
Accessibility Framework through the ATK library.
PyGTK provides a convenient wrapper for the GTK+ library for use in
Python programs, and takes care of many of the boring details such as
managing memory and type casting. When combined with PyORBit and
gnome-python, it can be used to write full featured Gnome applications.
Like the GTK+ library itself PyGTK is licensed under the GNU LGPL, so is
suitable for use in both free software and proprietary applications. It
is already in use in many applications ranging from small single purpose
scripts up to large full features applications.
What's new since 2.10.4 ?
- Do access private GtkTooltip member tips_data_list, fixes build
against Gtk+ 2.11.x (Johan)
- Allow None to gtk_rc_get_style_by_paths (Mariano Suarez-Alvarez)
- Fix defs file inconsistencies (Andrew Cowie)
- Documentation build fixes (Richard Hult)
- Code generator improvements (Tim Evans, Gustavo)
- Include atk-types.defs when building using distutils, so gtk.Accessible
is available on win32
PyGTK requires GTK+ >= 2.8.0 and Python >= 2.3.5 to build.
Bug reports, as always, should go to Bugzilla; check out
http://pygtk.org/developer.html and http://pygtk.org/feedback.html for
links to posting and querying bug reports for PyGTK.
eGenix is looking into organizing a one day conference
specifically for companies doing business with Python, Zope and
Plone. The conference will likely be held in or close to
Düsseldorf, Germany, which is lively medium-sized city, with good
airport connections world-wide and specifically to all major
European cities, so it's easy getting there and ideal for a one
The focus of the conference is on networking, meeting people,
exchanging experience and exploring ways of working together.
We are aiming at having a small conference program with just a few
talks. The main intent of the presentations should be to initiate
discussions among the attendees.
Since this will be a business-only event, we will likely get
professional help from a conference organizer and also try to
sign up with a hotel to do all the catering, conference room
My questions to you:
* Would there be interest in such a conference event ?
* How many people from your company would likely attend ?
* Would a weekday or weekend conference date be more attractive ?
* Does the focus suit your needs ?
We will be giving a short presentation of what we have in mind
at EuroPython 2007 in Vilnius in the context of the Open Space
