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 popular wxWidgets cross platform 
GUI 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, and Macintosh OS X.

Changes in

The changes in this version are too numerous to list here, please see 
the following websites for more details.  If you are upgrading from 
2.4.x then please do read the MigrationGuide fully before as there are 
some backwards incompatible changes.
