I'm not sure why you would think so.  The latest pywin32 release came out
in September, and supports Python 2.2 through 2.6.

However, PythonWin isn't really a framework for writing GUI Python apps.
It's more of an IDE for Python.

If you are comfortable with the Win32 API and MFC, pywin32 includes a
relatively thin wrapper around MFC.  It's quite possible to write GUI apps
using it, and there are several good examples.

I'm not sure that I'd prefer it to wxPython, however.
