Howdy all,

Just when we thought things were looking up on the whole "Windows as a
trademark" for something that Microsoft didn't originate in the first
place.

The wxWindows project have announced that they are changing their name
to wxWidgets, specifically to avoid problems with the Microsoft product
name.

    <http://www.wxwindows.org/name.htm>

Fortunately, the name wxPython still fits with the new name for the
underlying toolkit.
