About this release: ===================
Urwid is now one year old! Thank you to everyone who has sent in comments and suggestions. I am now looking for volunteers with experience using combining, double width and bidirectional characters in the UTF-8 encoding. Let me know if you can help test future releases.
New in this release: ====================
- New Overlay class for drawing widgets that obscure parts of other widgets. May be used for drop down menus, combo boxes, overlapping "windows", caption text etc.
- New BarGraph, GraphVScale and ProgressBar classes for graphical display of data in Urwid applications.
- New method for configuring keyboard input timeouts and delays: curses_display.Screen.set_input_timeouts(..).
- Fixed a ListBox.set_focus(..) bug.
