ANNOUNCE: PyGTK 2.9.1 (unstable)

I am pleased to announce version 2.9.1 of the Python bindings for GTK.

The new release is available from and its mirrors
as soon as its synced correctly:

This is an unstable release and should be used with caution.
It requires either GTK+ 2.8.x or GTK+ >= 2.9.3.

[ Note: this release also fixes a build problem for the recently
released GnomePythonDesktop 2.15.3. ]


GTK is a toolkit for developing graphical applications that run on
such as Linux, Windows and MacOS X. It provides a comprehensive set
of GUI widgets, can display Unicode bidi text.  It links into the Gnome
Accessibility Framework through the ATK library.

PyGTK provides a convenient wrapper for the GTK+ library for use in
Python programs, and takes care of many of the boring details such as
managing memory and type casting.  When combined with PyORBit and
gnome-python, it can be used to write full featured Gnome applications.

Like the GTK+ library itself PyGTK is licensed under the GNU LGPL, so is
suitable for use in both free software and proprietary applications.  It
is already in use in many applications ranging from small single purpose
scripts up to large full features applications.
