PythonCard is a GUI construction kit for building cross-platform desktop applications on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
Release 0.6.9 includes over 30 sample applications and four tools to help users build applications in Python: codeEditor, findfiles, resourceEditor, and textEditor. A list of changes since release 0.6.8.1 is at the end of this message.
All the information you need about PythonCard can be found on the project web page at: http://pythoncard.sourceforge.net/
The installation instructions and walkthroughs are available on the main documentation page: http://pythoncard.sourceforge.net/documentation.html
Remember to backup or just delete your old PythonCardPrototype directory before installing a new version, so that the old files aren't still in the package directory. If you want to keep any of your userdata.txt or other configuration files (stc-styles.user.rc.cfg, pythoncard_user_config.py, etc.), back those up prior to doing the install, and then copy the files back afterwards. If you installed a previous version of PythonCard on Windows using the binary installer, then you should be able to remove the old package via the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel.
The distutils installer will put the framework, components, docs, samples, and tools in Python22\Lib\site-packages. Of course, on Linux and Mac OS X that path will be slightly different and have forward slashes.
