I am pleased to announce version 0.12.1 of the Python bindings for Poppler.

This is a quick follow up to add a couple of new objects that were
missing from the defs, h2defs didn't pick them up automatically.

It is available at:

    o Add LayersIter boxed type
    o Add Layers gobject type


Poppler[1] is a PDF rendering library based on the xpdf-3.0 code base.

PyPoppler is a wrapper which exposes the poppler API to the
python world.  It is fairly complete, most of the API are covered.

The documentation is actually missing, help wanted :)

Like the Poppler library itself, PyPoppler is licensed under  the GNU GPL.

PyPoppler requires:

 o Poppler >= 0.12.0
 o PyGObject >= 2.10.1
 o PyGTK >= 2.10.0
 o PyCairo >= 1.8.4

Bug reports should go to
