The first stable/production version of pyglet has been released.


pyglet provides an object-oriented programming interface for
developing games and other visually-rich applications for Windows, Mac
OS X and Linux. Some of the features of pyglet are:

    * No external dependencies or installation requirements. For most
application and game requirements, pyglet needs nothing else besides
Python, simplifying distribution and installation.
    * Take advantage of multiple windows and multi-monitor desktops.
pyglet allows you to use as many windows as you need, and is fully
aware of multi-monitor setups for use with fullscreen games.
    * Load images, sound, music and video in almost any format. pyglet
can optionally use AVbin to play back audio formats such as MP3,
OGG/Vorbis and WMA, and video formats such as DivX, MPEG-2, H.264, WMV
and Xvid.

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.
