I am pleased to announce version 0.9.0 of the Python bindings for
Goocanvas.

It is available at:

https://developer.berlios.de/projects/pygoocanvas/

The bindings are updated with the new Goocanvas API

PyGooCanvas 0.9.0       (Aug 18 2007)
=================

 o Wrap goo_canvas_item_get_bounds (Gian Mario)
 o fix compilation on Solaris, patch by
  JerryYu <jijun.yu at sun.com>. Fixes LP#130106 (Gian Mario)
 o Add goocanvas.ItemSimple.get_line_width (Gian Mario)
 o Docs updated fixes LP#124921 (Gian Mario)

Blurb:
======

Goocanvas [1] is a canvas widget for GTK+, It is similar in many ways
to  FooCanvas, hence the name, but it uses cairo for rendering, it has
an optional  model/view split, and uses interfaces for items & views
(so you can easily turn any application object into a canvas item or
view).

PyGooCanvas is a wrapper which exposes the goocanvas API to the
python world.  It is fairly complete; most of the API are covered.

The documentation is done, anyway bug reports on docs are really
important to improve the documentation.

Like the GTK+ library, PyGTK and GooCanvas itself PyGooCanvas is
licensed under  the GNU LGPL, so is suitable for use in both
free software and proprietary applications.

PyGooCanvas requires:
=====================

 o Goocanvas >= 0.9.0
 o PyGObject >= 2.10.1 (2.11.3 to build the docs)
 o PyGTK >= 2.10.4
 o PyCairo >= 1.2.0

Bug reports should go to
