Thanks for telling me.

I've got the feeling that my move to Gtk3 was a bit too early.

Two reasons I decided to switch to pygobject :

* The advice on : "New users wishing to develop Python applications
  using GTK+ are recommended to use the GObject-Introspection features
  available in PyGObject."

* The fact that glade, that I wanted to use as well, now (from version 3.10)
  only supports GTK3 (or so I understand).

The documentation is not as prolific as for pyGTK, to say the least. points to

* A tutorial (work in progress) :

* A partial doc I don't really use :

* A few examples :

And as far as I heard, porting such applications to windows is not easy

I would think it twice if I had to start a new project.
