GTK is a toolkit for developing graphical applications that run on POSIX 
systems such as Linux, Windows and MacOS X (provided that the X server 
for MacOS X has been installed).  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.

PyGTK now requires GTK >= 2.4 and Python >= 2.2 to build.

It includes a number of changes since the last pygtk
release; We'd really appreciate testing and bug reports on
this release; please take the time out to download and test it to ensure
it works for your application[s]. Bug reports, as always, should go to
Bugzilla; check out http://pygtk.org/developer.html and
http://pygtk.org/feedback.html for links to posting and querying bug
reports for PyGTK.
