What is it?
DirectPython is a C++ extension to the Python programming
language which provides basic access to DirectX (9.0c) API,
including Direct3D, DirectSound, DirectShow and DirectInput.

The full distribution is very easy to install and it includes
many samples and documentation that show the basics of
DirectPython programming. No additional packages are needed.

Whats new in 0.6.0?
-Bug fixes
-Minor features added
-Use 'comtypes' to access the whole DirectX API

And much more. Check the release notes for further 
information. This is not a very critical release when compared 
to 0.5, but if you can you should update. This version should 
be fully compatible with 0.5.

A Windows operating system (98 and up) with Python (2.4/2.5) 
and DirectX 9.0c installed.
