The PySide team is happy to announce the fifth beta release of PySide:
Python for Qt. New versions of the PySide toolchain components
have been released as well.

This is a source code release only; we hope our community packagers will
be providing provide binary packages shortly. To acquire the source code
packages, refer to our download wiki page [1] or pull the relevant
tagged versions from our git repositories [2].

Major changes since 1.0.0~beta4

This is a bugfix release. Since beta4, a total of 23 bugs have been
fixed. See the list of fixed bugs at the end of this message.

Path towards 1.0 release

The list of bugs in our Bugzilla [3] having P3 or higher priority is
getting short enough that we are beginning to feel confident for to do
the 1.0 release soon. The next release, in two weeks, will be our first
release candidate (rc1): it will incorporate all or most of the
currently open P2/P3 bugs, but after that, only clear regressions
(features which have worked in previous PySide versions but not in rc1)
will be fixed before 1.0. Then, the 1.0 release will happen two weeks
from rc1.

About PySide

PySide is the Nokia-sponsored Python Qt bindings project, providing
access to not only the complete Qt 4.7 framework but also Qt Mobility,
as well as to generator tools for rapidly generating bindings for any
Qt-based libraries.

The PySide project is developed in the open, with all facilities you'd
expect from any modern OSS project such as all code in a git repository
[2], an open Bugzilla [3] for reporting bugs, and an open design
process [4]. We welcome any contribution without requiring a transfer of
