unicode is a simple python command line utility that displays
properties for a given unicode character, or searches
unicode database for a given name.
It was written with Linux in mind, but should work almost everywhere
(including MS Windows and MacOSX), UTF-8 console is recommended.

GraphTerm is a browser-based graphical terminal interface,
that aims to seamlessly blend the command line and graphical
user interfaces. The goal is to be fully backwards compatible
with xterm, with additional graphical features being accessed
only as needed. (GraphTerm builds upon two earlier
browser-based terminal projects, XMLTerm and AjaxTerm.)
In addition to the command line, GraphTerm implements file
"finder" or "explorer" features, and the detached terminal
features of GNU Screen. The interface is designed to be
touch-friendly, relying upon command re-use to minimize
keyboard use. It preserves history for commands entered by
typing, clicking, or tapping, and is themable using CSS.
GraphTerm acts as a terminal exchange server, allowing
multiple users to connect to multiple computers
simultaneously and share terminal sessions for collaboration.
This is the first public release of GraphTerm. It can be

Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC12)
Python is a high-level programming language with a growing community
in academia and industry. It is a general-purpose language adopted by
many scientific applications such as computational fluid dynamics, bio
molecular simulation, artificial intelligence, statistics and data
analysis, scientific visualization etc. More and more industrial
domains are turning towards it as well, such as robotics, semiconductor
manufacturing, automotive solutions, telecommunication, computer
graphics, and games. In all fields, the use of Python for scientific,
high performance parallel, and distributed computing, as well as
general scripted automation is increasing. Moreover, Python is
well-suited for education in scientific computing.
The workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners from
industry and academia using Python for all aspects of high performance
and scientific computing. The goal is to present Python applications
from mathematics, science, and engineering, to discuss general topics
regarding the use of Python (such as language design and performance
issues), and to share experience using Python in scientific computing

On the behalf of Spyder's development team
(http://code.google.com/p/spyderlib/people/list), I'm pleased to
announce that Spyder v2.1.11 has been released and is available for
Windows XP/Vista/7, GNU/Linux and MacOS X:
This is a pure maintenance release -- a lot of bugs were fixed since v2.1.10:
Spyder is a free, open-source (MIT license) interactive development
environment for the Python language with advanced editing, interactive
testing, debugging and introspection features. Originally designed to
provide MATLAB-like features (integrated help, interactive console,
variable explorer with GUI-based editors for dictionaries, NumPy
arrays, ...), it is strongly oriented towards scientific computing and
Thanks to the `spyderlib` library, Spyder also provides powerful
ready-to-use widgets: embedded Python console (example:
http://packages.python.org/guiqwt/_images/sift3.png), NumPy array
editor (example: http://packages.python.org/guiqwt/_images/sift2.png),
dictionary editor, source code editor, etc.
Description of key features with tasty screenshots can be found at:
On Windows platforms, Spyder is also available as a stand-alone
executable (don't forget to disable UAC on Vista/7). This all-in-one
portable version is still experimental (for example, it does not embed
sphinx -- meaning no rich text mode for the object inspector) but it
should provide a working version of Spyder for Windows platforms
without having to install anything else (except Python 2.x itself, of
Don't forget to follow Spyder updates/news:
* on the project website: http://code.google.com/p/spyderlib/
* and on our official blog: http://spyder-ide.blogspot.com/
Last, but not least, we welcome any contribution that helps making
Spyder an efficient scientific development/computing environment. Join
us to help creating your favourite environment!

A build problem was discovered in 220.127.116.11 where a required wxWidgets
header file was not being installed, causing build errors in wxPython
when doing non in-place builds. This only affects builds using the
wxGTK port of wxWidgets.
To correct this problem a small patch file has been made available. It
adds the installation of the missing header file, removes the use of
another missing header which is no longer required, and updates the
We are happy to remind all Django users that DjangoCon US is in DC this year, from September 3-8 (main conference September 4-6). Early bird pricing is available until August 3, and the schedule will be published shortly after this announcement is made.
Since this is DjangoCon's first ever visit to the East coast we are hoping for good attendance from up and down the East coast, but some delegates will come from as far away as Australia, so Americans have no excuse!

wxPython 18.104.22.168 (classic) has been released and is now available for
download at http://wxpython.org/download.php. There have been a few
enhancements and additions, and lots of bugs fixed. More details are
Various binaries are available for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows, and also
for OSX using the Carbon and Cocoa APIs, for Python 2.6 and 2.7.
Source code is also available at http://wxpython.org/download.php of
course, for building your own.
What is wxPython?
wxPython is a GUI toolkit for the Python programming language. It
allows Python programmers to create programs with a robust, highly
functional graphical user interface, simply and easily. It is
implemented as a set of Python extension modules that wrap the GUI
components of the popular wxWidgets cross platform library, which is
written in C++.
wxPython is a cross-platform toolkit. This means that the same program
will usually run on multiple platforms without modifications.
Currently supported platforms are 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows,
most Linux or other Unix-like systems using GTK2, and Mac OS X 10.4+.
In most cases the native widgets are used on each platform to provide
a 100% native look and feel for the application.
Changes in 22.214.171.124
wx.lib.pubsub: Pusub now defaults to the new "kwarg" version of the
API. In order to continue using the original "arg1" API you will need
to import wx.lib.pubsub.setuparg1 before importing any other pubsub
The wx.RA_USE_CHECKBOX and wx.RB_USE_CHECKBOX constants were removed.
They were only used by the incomplete PalmOS port which has been
removed from the wxWidgets source tree.
wx.Font: There is now GetStrikethrough and SetStrikethrough methods.
wx.StaticBox: Fixed the client origin and client size on MSW so
children of the static box should not overlap the box's label or
Applied a patch from Sam Partington that fixes some threading issues
in the wrapper code and other cool stuff.
Added the missing wx/lib/agw/data dir to the installers.
Add wx.EnhMetaFile and wx.EnhMetaFileDC for MSW. This DC type is what
is used by the print framework in the print preview window, so it
needed to be wrapped so self.GetDC() would work properly.
Announcing PyTables 2.4.0
We are happy to announce PyTables 2.4.0.
This is an incremental release which includes many changes to prepare
for future Python 3 support.
This release includes support for the float16 data type and read-only
support for variable length string attributes.
The handling of HDF5 errors has been improved. The user will no longer
see HDF5 error stacks dumped to the console. All HDF5 error messages
are trapped and attached to a proper Python exception.
Now PyTables only supports HDF5 v1.8.4+. All the code has been updated
to the new HDF5 API. Supporting only HDF5 1.8 series is beneficial for
Documentation has been improved.
As always, a large amount of bugs have been addressed and squashed as well.
In case you want to know more in detail what has changed in this
version, please refer to:
You can download a source package with generated PDF and HTML docs, as
well as binaries for Windows, from:

What it is?
PyTables is a library for managing hierarchical datasets and designed to
efficiently cope with extremely large amounts of data with support for
full 64-bit file addressing. PyTables runs on top of the HDF5 library
and NumPy package for achieving maximum throughput and convenient use.
PyTables includes OPSI, a new indexing technology, allowing to perform
data lookups in tables exceeding 10 gigarows (10**10 rows) in less than
a tenth of a second.

About the HDF5 library: http://hdfgroup.org/HDF5/
About NumPy: http://numpy.scipy.org/
Thanks to many users who provided feature improvements, patches, bug
reports, support and suggestions. See the ``THANKS`` file in the
distribution package for a (incomplete) list of contributors. Most
specially, a lot of kudos go to the HDF5 and NumPy (and numarray!)
makers. Without them, PyTables simply would not exist.
