I am pleased to announce version 3.11.2 of the Python bindings for
GObject. This is the second alpha release of the 3.11.x series for GNOME 3.12.

An important change with this release is deprecation messages are
emitted when using positional arguments with overridden initializers.
Positional arguments will continue to be supported for the remainder
of the 3.x series but also updating to use keyword arguments is
compatible with prior releases. Please see the following wiki and bug
report for rational:

The new release is available from

About PyGObject
GObject is a object system used by GTK+, GStreamer and other libraries.

PyGObject provides a convenient wrapper for use in Python programs when
accessing GObject libraries.

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 now dynamically accesses any GObject libraries that uses
GObject Introspection. It replaces the need for separate modules such as
PyGTK, GIO and python-gnome to build a full GNOME 3.0 application. Once
new functionality is added to gobject library it is instantly available
as a Python API without the need for intermediate Python glue.
