Announcing ---------- I'm pleased to announce the 188.8.131.52 release of wxPython, now available for download at http://wxPython.org/download.php 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 Python extension module that wraps 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 Microsoft Windows, most Linux or other Unix-like systems using GTK or GTK2, and Apple Macintosh OS X. Changes in 184.108.40.206 ------------------ For the complete list of changes in this release, please see http://wxPython.org/recentchanges.php. Some of the highlights are as follows: * It is now possible to install multiple versions of wxPython at the same time, and there is support for choosing at runtime which version will be imported with "import wx". See the Migration Guide and http://wiki.wxpython.org/index.cgi/MultiVersionInstalls for more details. * Added wx.lib.ogl.DrawnShape, and fixed various little bugs in the new OGL. * Added support to XRC and XRCed for the 3-state checkbox flags and also for wx.ToggleButton. Updated the generic window styles supported by XRCed. * It is now possible to create "stock" buttons by using one of the "stock" IDs. If the platform has coresponding standard button images then they will be used. * Added wx.lib.ticker.Ticker class from Chris Mellon. * Added wx.Frame.RequestUserAttention which, if the platform suports it, will do something (such as flash the task bar item) to suggest to the user that they should look at that window. * wx.Sizer.Show (and Hide) now take an optional parameter specifying if the item to be shown should be searched for recursivly in subsizers, and return a boolean value indicating if the item was found. * Added wx.Choicebook, yet another notebook-like control. * Added limited support for wxEventLoop. * wxMac: wx.TaskBarIcon is implemented by allowing you to change the app's icon on the Dock and also specifying a menu that should be merged with the normal dock popup menu. * FloatCanvas updates from Chris Barker * PyPlot updates from Gordon Williams. * MaskedEdit updates from Will Sadkin. * Added wrappers for wx.WebKitCtrl for the OSX build, from Kevin Ollivier. * wxPython on OSX can now be built in Unicode mode and comes with an uninstaller script. -- Robin Dunn Software Craftsman http://wxPython.org Java give you jitters?
