Late yesterday evening I did a new release of pygobject. The first one in about 10 months, I should do this more often I know. The most important thing featured in this release is the addition of GIO bindings. I know lots of you out there have been asking for this.
There’s still no official documentation included, but there’ll be in the near future as we have a couple of people working on it. While you wait, enjoy this simple example:
fp = gio.File("http://planet.gnome.org")
data = fp.read()
We have also moved the code generator from PyGTK into PyGObject, this means that GObject bases libraries can be wrapped in python without having to depend on GTK+, this should be quite useful, I think.
I’d especially thank Paul Pogonyshev (doublep on irc) for this work on this release, he’s getting more and more involved in both PyGTK and PyGObject, thanks Paul!
