pygtk-1.99.9


I have just uploaded pygtk-1.99.9.  It should be available from:
  ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/python/v2.0/pygtk-1.99.9.tar.gz
  ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/earthquake/sources/pygtk/pygtk-1.99.9.tar.gz

A new gnome-python release to work accompany this pygtk release should 
be ready shortly.

PyGTK is a set of bindings for the GTK+ 2.0 widget set, and related 
libraries.  New stuff in this release includes:

    * code generator updates.  I refactored the code generator a fair
      bit to make code generation for GObjects, interfaces, boxed and
      pointer types all go through the same code paths.  This shortened
      the codegen.py script significantly, and makes it easier to extend
      it later on.
    * h2def.py script doesn't get a stack overrun exception trying to
      process the comments in atkobject.h any more (I got rid of the
      regexp comment removal code).
    * many updates to the defs files to bring them into line with the
      gtk 2.0 release (me, Johan Dahlin, Matt Wilson)
    * fix up an invalid DECREF in gtk.glade.XML.signal_autoconnect(),
      which was causing all kinds of weird errors for people using the
      libglade wrapper.
    * add gtk.glade.bindtextdomain() function for setting the C level
      gettext translation domain.  This allows people to use translated
      glade interfaces from python.  Note that this function is roughly
      equivalent to the locale.bindtextdomain() function that will be in
      the Python 2.3 release. (Matt Wilson)
    * Initial port of GtkGLArea module (OpenGL widget).  (Xavier Ordoquy)
    * add wrappers for many functions not handled by the code generator
      (me, Johan Dahlin, Matt Wilson)
    * makefiles for building pygtk with MSVC on win32 (Hans Breuer)
