I am happy to announce the availability of PyUNO in  OpenOffice.org1.1rc.

PyUNO is a generic bridge between python and's component 
model UNO (Universal Network Objects).

The bridge enables python programmers to script a running 
-instance from the python executable via the UNO interprocess bridge. 
Additionally it allows to implement UNO components in python, which e.g. 
can be loaded directly into the process.

OpenOffice.org1.1rc ships with a nearly complete prebuilt python-2.2.2 
runtime. This is necessary, because python 2.2.x does not yet build a 
shared library by default and the python executable is linked vs. the 
system's stdc++ library, which in general is incompatible to 
OpenOffice's stdc++ library.

In theory, PyUNO can also be used only with the core libraries of in order to use low-level-features like an interprocess 
bridge, C++ vs. Java vs. Python bridge, etc.

for a more detailed description of pyuno.

for getting OOo's source and/or binaries.
