and distributors of high-quality open source and commercial Linux software, 
are pleased to announce the availability of BlackAdder 1.0-040112, a 
Windows/Linux UI development environment for Python based on 
Qt.  BlackAdder combines a visual design environment with debugging, syntax 
highlighting, ODBC interfaces and extensive documentation into a 
comprehensive platform for developing Python applications with PyQt.

BlackAdder is an exciting product for rapidly developing applications on 
Linux or Windows using the popular Python language.  Besides being a 
powerful IDE with an extensive array of tools to make developing your 
application quick and easy.  BlackAdder is tightly integrated with PyQt 
which is a set of bindings for Python to allow you to make use of the 
popular Qt multi-platform windowing toolkit from Trolltech.  Our optional 
Business Edition gives you a full commercial license for both PyQt and Qt 
as used from BlackAdder.  This new release has significant enhancements to 
the Editor and Designer components of the system.
