I am pleased to announce version 3.11.5 of the Python bindings for
GObject. This is the fifth alpha release of the 3.11.x series for GNOME 3.12.
Notable in this release is a lots of internal refactoring and reorganizing of
modules. PyGObject has gone from building four shared libraries
(_gi.so, _gobject.so, _glib.so, and libpyglib-gi-2.0.so) down to one (_gi.so).
This eases internal code sharing and should making packaging for various
platforms a bit simpler.
The new release is available from ftp.gnome.org:

GObject is a object system used by GTK+, GStreamer and other libraries.
PyGObject provides a convenient wrapper for use in Python programs when
accessing GObject libraries.
Like the GObject library itself PyGObject is licensed under the GNU
LGPL, so is suitable for use in both free software and proprietary
applications. It is already in use in many applications ranging from
small single purpose scripts up to large full featured applications.
PyGObject now dynamically accesses any GObject libraries that uses
GObject Introspection. It replaces the need for separate modules such as
PyGTK, GIO and python-gnome to build a full GNOME 3.0 application. Once
new functionality is added to gobject library it is instantly available
as a Python API without the need for intermediate Python glue.
