PyGObject released

Martin Pitt-4
I am pleased to announce version of the Python bindings for
GObject. This is the fifth release of the 3.7.x series which will
eventually result in the stable 3.8 release for GNOME 3.8.

Note that 3.7.5 was released and tagged yesterday, but not uploaded to because of disk space problems.

The new release is available from
  sha256sum: 937529a2915bd94a626d1e5e06ffd26fd99b3d874fbf10ca69739dde52dcdfa9

About PyGObject
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.
