Hello..General question about TKinter.

I am a fluent  Python programmer, but have limited (zero) GUI
experience.   I need to write simple GUI's fairly quickly and would
prefer to use TKinter for it's simplicity and longevity.   (I tried to
compile QT on both HPUX and Solaris with recent compilers...and
compiles/builds failed....frustrating.  In contrast, compiling tcl/TK
libraries was a breeze!)


The only thing I'm curious about now are the following:  Is the TKinter
python module actively maintained?  And does it keep up with the latest
TK widget sets, features and methods?


I'm seeing that TK 8.0 and later have significant enhancements that are
very attractive and I would like to use them from the Tkinter interface.
At some point I will need them, and was thinking that I might have  to
build my own interface module to encapsulate their methods, and/or start
writing code in tcl/tk.   Not sure which would be easier.  


Thank you for your time.

Kind regards,
