pyjamas - the stand-alone python-to-javascript compiler, and separate
GUI Widget Toolkit, has its 0.7 release, today.  this has been much
delayed, in order to allow the community plenty of time between the
0.7pre2 release and the final release, to review and test all the

pyjamas allows developers to create applications that will run either
in any modern web browser (with no plugins required) or as a
stand-alone cross-platform desktop application (like PyQT4 or PyGTK2),
WITHOUT requiring modifications to the original python source.  this
concept is singularly unique in the free software python world, but is
conceptually similar to Adobe AIR and Silverlight - without the
massive plugins required.

there has been significant improvements, features and libraries added
in between 0.6 and 0.7: please see the README in the distribution for
details.  for fits and giggles, to show what's possible in only 400
lines of python, here is a game of asteroids, written by joe rumsey.
yes, it runs under pyjamas-desktop too.
