Pyjamas 0.5p1 - http://pyjs.org - is a bug-fix release.

Pyjamas is a Web Widget Framework, written in python, that is compiled
to javascript using its stand-alone python-to-javascript compiler.  It
began as a port of GWT, to python.

Many of the issues faced by web developers - javascript and CSS
incompatibilities and difficulties - simply go away, with Pyjamas,
thanks to the declarative style used for Pyjamas application
development, that's near-identical to that of python-qt4, python-gtk2
and python-wxWidgets.

The use of Pyjamas for application development turns web browsers into
a desktop widget application development platform, with the added
advantage over traditional desktop widget sets of having full access
to the complete set of HTML features of web browsers.

The stand-alone python-to-javascript compiler is also beginning to
develop into a python accelerator.  The combination of pyjs and pyv8,
or pyjs and python-spidermonkey, offers some interesting possibilities
for JIT compilation of python applications into x86 or ARM assembler
(using pyv8), by way of intermediate compilation to javascript.
Anyone who is interested in the possibilities should contact the
pyjamas developers at http://groups.google.com/group/pyjamas-dev
