I am pleased to announce the first public beta of pyglet, a 
cross-platform windowing and multimedia package useful for developing 
games and other visually-rich applications.

Applications using pyglet can also play sound and music samples in 
surround-sound, taking advantage of hardware acceleration where

pyglet is provided under the BSD open-source license, allowing you to 
use it for both commercial and other open-source projects with very 
little restriction.
