Announcing
----------

The 2.6.1.0 release of wxPython is now available for download at
http://wxpython.org/download.php.  Anybody keeping track will probably
notice that the prior release (2.6.0.1) was released just about a week
ago.  This short turn-around time is because I was slow getting the
last release done, and the wxWidgets team was uncharacteristically
early with the 2.6.1 release!  This release consists of a few bug
fixes made since 2.6.0.1.


What is wxPython?
-----------------

wxPython is a GUI toolkit for the Python programming language. It
allows Python programmers to create programs with a robust, highly
functional graphical user interface, simply and easily. It is
implemented as a Python extension module that wraps the GUI components
of the popular wxWidgets cross platform library, which is written in
C++.

wxPython is a cross-platform toolkit. This means that the same program
will usually run on multiple platforms without modifications.
Currently supported platforms are 32-bit Microsoft Windows, most Linux
or other Unix-like systems using GTK or GTK2, and Mac OS X.


Changes in 2.6.1.0
------------------

wx.ListCtrl: patch #1210352, fixes editing in generic wx.ListCtrl with
wx.LC_EDIT_LABELS.

Applied patch #208286, MediaCtrl DirectShow rewrite.

DocView patches from Morgan Hua: bug fixes, and additional SVN
commands, also added a default template that uses the text editor for
any unknown file type.

wxMSW: Use the system IDC_HAND cursor for wx.CURSOR_HAND and only fallback
to the strange wxWidgets version if the system one is not available.

wx.grid.Grid: Merge the cell size attribute the same way that other
attributes are merged, e.g., if it is already set to a non-default
value in the current GridCellAttr object then don't merge from the
other.

wx.lib.evtmgr: Fixed to use wx._core._wxPyDeadObject

wx.lib.gridmovers: Don't scroll when the mouse is dragged outside of
the grid, unless the mouse is kept in motion.

wxMSW:  Applied patch #1213290 incorrect logic in
wx.TopLevelWindow.ShowFullScreen.

Applied patch #1213066 correct device names for Joystick in Linux.

wxGTK: Applied patch #1207162 wx.TextCtrl.SetStyle fix for overlapping
calls.

wx.FileConfig: fixed DeleteEntry to set the dirty flag properly so the
change will get written at the next flush.
