Thanks for the pointer, I never noticed that either. But looking back, Tix has actually been included since Python 2.2! It was not listed in the What's New document for that release so it was easy to miss. It *was* listed in the What's New for Python 2.3; not as a new module but as receiving "various bug fixes and updates".

Module index for Python 2.2.3: http://www.python.org/doc/2.2.3/modindex.html
What's new for Python 2.2.3: http://www.python.org/doc/2.2.3/whatsnew/whatsnew22.html
What's new for Python 2.3.5: http://www.python.org/doc/2.3.5/whatsnew/node18.html

Has anyone here played with the TixApps on this site:

The IDE Studio and SpecTix look interesting.
