Welcome to the home of wxPython, a blending of the
wxWidgets C++ class library with the Python programming language.
- (23-July-2012) wxPython (classic) 184.108.40.206 has been released. There have been a few enhancements and additions, and lots of bugs fixed. More details are in the Recent Changes document.
- (31-Dec-2011) Happy New Year! wxPython (classic) 220.127.116.11 has been released. This release takes care of a few bugs discovered in the installers and documentation of the previous release, and a few other things.
- (28-Dec-2011) wxPython (classic) 18.104.22.168 has been released. Among other things, this build adds some classes produced by one of the Google Summer of Code projects, wx.html2.WebView and related classes. This gives wxPython the ability to embed a native HTML/CSS/JS renderer using the same API and events on all platforms.
- (8-Sept-2011) Here we go again. wxPython 22.214.171.124 has been released. This build fixes an indentation bug that crept in somewhere along the way and that caused the Mac installer to fail as it compiled the .py files
- (8-Sept-2011) wxPython 126.96.36.199 has been released. This release fixes a bug that was causing the base class methods of wx.richtext.RichTextCtrl to be called incorrectly, causing a crash.
- (6-Sept-2011) wxPython 188.8.131.52 has been released. This build adds some fixes for some annoying and subtle bugs, and also a couple nice new features. The Cairo version of the wx.GraphicsContext back-end can now be used on Windows, and there is a new module in the library that helps wx applications to update themselves when new versions of the software are released. Details are in the Recent Changes document.
- (23-July-2011) Two at once! Both wxPython 184.108.40.206 and wxPython 220.127.116.11 have been released. 18.104.22.168 is the next iteration from the wxPython development release series, and 22.214.171.124 contains a minor, but important bug fix in the Bind method.
- (19-April-2011) wxPython 126.96.36.199 This is a new release from the 2.8 stable release series. No major features or enhancements have been added to the core library, so this release is mostly bug fixes in both the C++ and Python parts of the project, plus some enhancements in the wx.lib package.
- (9-Dec-2010) wxPython 2.8 Application Development Cookbook by Cody Precord is published and available for purchase.
- (19-October-2010) wxPython 188.8.131.52 The first public release of wxPython from the 2.9 development release series, with lots and lots (and lots) of changes, enhancements and fixes.
