I am pleased to announce version 2.12.0 of the Python bindings for GObject.

The new release is available from as and its mirrors
as soon as its synced correctly:

What's new since PyGObject 2.11.3:
 - Install the html files even when using --disable-docs (#353159, Johan,
        Matthias Clasen)


GObject is a object system library used by GTK+ and GStreamer.

PyGObject provides a convenient wrapper for the GObject+ library for use
in Python programs, and takes care of many of the boring details such as
managing memory and type casting.  When combined with PyGTK, PyORBit and
gnome-python, it can be used to write full featured Gnome applications.

Like the GObject library itself PyGObject is licensed under the
GNU LGPL, so is suitable for use in both free software and proprietary
applications.  It is already in use in many applications ranging
from small single purpose scripts up to large full
featured applications.

PyGObject requires GObject >= 2.8.0 and Python >= 2.3.5 to build.

What's new in 2.12.0?

* John Finlays reference manual is now included and prebuilt
* GOption is now supported
* Support for signal emission hooks
* Various GInterface related improvements
* Many bug fixes
