wxPython Release

wxPython 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.

wxPython released

This is pretty much a bug-fix only release, although some of the 3rd party modules in wx.lib have also been updated and include some new features.  You can download it from the wxPython download page.  As always you should join the wxPython-users group hosted at GoogleGroups for questions, support, comments, or just for the sake of being part of an awesome community.


The release of wxPython is now available for download at  http://wxpython.org/download.php.  This is the first official release in the 2.9 development release series.  There are lots and lots of new widgets and other awesome stuff that have been added since the 2.8 series, with more to come in future releases.  A list of changes can be seen at http://wxpython.org/recentchanges.php.  Also new with this release is a build for Mac OSX and Python 2.7 that uses the Cocoa API and supports the 64-bit architecture on OSX 10.5 and 10.6.

Various binaries are available for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows, and also  for OSX using the Carbon and Cocoa APIs, for Python 2.5, 2.6 and 2.7. And source code is also available at http://wxpython.org/download.php of course, for building your own.

wxPython has just been released.  This release adds the wx.lib.agw package, adds an event watcher to the widget inspection tool, and fixes a bunch of bugs.

  • Changes in
  • Download (source, Windows and Mac binaries)
  • APT(Debian or Ubuntu packages)


I've just released the new build of wxPython. This release has had some bugs fixed, some minor patches applied, and also incorporates the Google Summer of Code 2007 version of XRCed, and adds the Editra source code editor. More details can be found in the changes list. wxPython source and binaries for Windows, Mac OS X and Fedora can be downloaded from the download page. Binaries for Debian and Ubuntu i386 and amd64 architectures are available in the wxWidgets APT repository, see this wiki page for details.

NOTE: On Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) the Python 2.5 binaries of wxPython expect to be used with the user-installed version of MacPython, not the Apple installed version. A fix for this issue is being worked on for the next release. In the meantime you can either install MacPython 2.5.1 and adjust your paths so that that Python is used, or you can stick with Apple's Python and the wxPython that comes with Leopard.

Happy Hacking!
