I am pleased to announce version 2.21.3 of the Python bindings for GObject.

The new release is available from ftp.gnome.org as and its mirrors as
soon as its synced correctly:


What's new since PyGObject 2.21.2?

        - Proper handling of null-ok in virtual methods (Ludovic L'Hours)
        - Fall back to use the floating references API in glib if
there isn't a sinkfunc defined. (Tomeu Vizoso)
        - Revert "Drop sinkfuncs." (Tomeu Vizoso)
        - [giounix] Make it possible to compile on glib 2.20 (Johan Dahlin)
        - Release the lock when potentially invoking Python code.
(Sjoerd Simons)


GObject is an object system library used by GTK+ and GStreamer.

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

Like the GObject library itself PyGObject 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
featured applications.

PyGObject requires glib >= 2.22.4 and Python >= 2.3.5 to build.
GIO bindings require glib >= 2.22.4.

Please remember that this is an unstable release and shouldn't be used
in production.
