Here we go again. wxPython 18.104.22.168 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
wxPython 22.214.171.124 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.
Two at once! Both wxPython 126.96.36.199 and wxPython 188.8.131.52 have been released.
184.108.40.206 is the next iteration from the wxPython development release series, and 220.127.116.11 contains a minor, but important bug fix in the Bind method.
Do you know where your towel is?
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.
While browsing around on the Packt Publishing web site after looking at the page for Cody's book I saw that there are currently a couple promotional deals that may interest some of you. There is the Python Month deal that will give you 20% off any Python book they publish, or 30% off of any Python eBook. The other deal is that you can currently get any 5 eBooks from Packt for \$40.
The wxPython community now has a 2nd book about our favorite UI toolkit. The book is "wxPython 2.8 Application Development Cookbook" written by Cody Precord and published by Packt Publishing. Cody is the creator of the awesome Editra source code editor and a frequent participant on the wxPython-users mail list. There is an eBook version of the text available from Packt Publishing, and you can get the printed version from Packt or from other booksellers such as amazon.com.
I haven't read all the recipes yet, but from what I've seen so far I can say that they are informative and do a good job of explaining the demonstrated techniques and the concepts used or implemented in the sample source code. I think that there will be something for everyone in this book, from newbies all the way up to experienced users.
For a couple years now myself and a few others have been hinting that a totally new way to develop wxPython is possible and is just over the horizon. I'm happy to announce that the project is finally moving beyond the pie-in-the-sky stage and that development of the tools has begun. More details are available in the wxPython wiki, and you can join the discussion about the project in the wxPython-dev mail list.
