I am pleased to announce the stable version 2.10.4 of the Python bindings
for GTK.

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


GTK is a toolkit for developing graphical applications that run on
systems such as Linux, Windows and MacOS X. It provides a comprehensive set
of GUI widgets, can display Unicode bidi text.  It links into the Gnome
Accessibility Framework through the ATK library.

PyGTK provides a convenient wrapper for the GTK+ 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 PyORBit and
gnome-python, it can be used to write full featured Gnome applications.

Like the GTK+ library itself PyGTK 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 features applications.

What's new since 2.10.3 ?

    - Documentation build fixes (John Finlay, Gustavo)
    - Return NULL on error in TextBuffer.register_serialize_format
      (Paolo Borelli)
    - Do not overwrite sys.argv (JP Calderone)

    - Make it possible to remove rows in the gtk.TreeModel.foreach
      callback (Gustavo)
    - Code generator fix for %define (#381389, Manish Singh)
    - Duplicate GdkEvent.string member when setting it (#382428,
      Gustavo, John Ehresman)
    - Make it possible to use automake 1.10 (Kjartan Maraas)
    - distutils build fixes (#385934, Sebastien Bacher, Michael Bienia)

    - Undeprecate gtk.container_class_list_child_properties (Johan)
    - Fix memory leak in gtk.Container.child_get (Gian Mario Tagliaretti)

PyGTK requires GTK+ >= 2.8.0 and Python >= 2.3.5 to build.

Bug reports, as always, should go to Bugzilla; check out and for
