Hello there,

I'm releasing today version 0.6.12 of PyGTK, off the 0.6 branch, which is the original PyGTK branch based on GTK+ 1.2.

This version includes a small number of bugfixes and two API additions which have been incorporated during the last two years of stability. Summary of changes:


  • Fixed GtkScrolledWindow's use of `has_attr'
  • A fix for bug 96907: Crashes when calling emit() with less parameters than expected.
  • Check for non-existing directories in pygtk._get_available_versions
  • Implement proper exception handling in the GladeXML constructor.
  • Performance enhancement in bug 112395: Clean up __getattr__ and add __eq__/__nonzero__ to GtkObject.


  • Wrapped GtkRadioButton.group()
  • Implemented GtkCList.set_focus_row() to work around a GTK+ focus bug in the GtkCList.

There is no accompanying gnome-python release. This tarball is identical to the release candidate that was announced earlier. Thanks for everyone that provided bug reports, comments and fixes for the branch, including Jon Nelson, Steve McClure and Andrew Reid.

Take care,
