[announce] pygobject 3.0.1 released

I am pleased to announce version 3.0.1 of the Python bindings for GObject.

The new release is available from ftp.gnome.org:


What’s new since PyGObject 3.0.0?
  • when checking instances union members are same type as parent
  • add a floating flag to pygobjects
  • Revert “Fix refcount bug by not creating python wrapper during gobject init stage”


GObject is a object system library used by GTK+ and GStreamer.

PyGObject provides a convenient wrapper for the GObject library for use in Python programs, and takes care of many of the boring details such as managing memory and type casting.

Like the GObject library itself PyGObject 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 featured applications.

PyGObject requires glib >= 2.22.4 and Python >= 2.5.1 to build.

Introspection/Python 2 bindings requires gobject-introspection >= 0.9.5 and pycairo >=1.0.2 or py2cairo >=1.8.10

Introspection/Python 3 bindings requires gobject-introspection >= 0.9.5, pycairo >=1.8.10 and Python >= 3.1
