pyWin build 216

w.g.sneddon@gmail.com
I have used pyWin for several years now with out issue.   I recently
installed build 216 for python 2.7 on windows XP pro.   The program
crashes every time I exit a wxPython program and has crashed a few
other times.  I does not seem that pyWin has been updated since
February of this year.   Is there a direction change for the windows
extensions?  Is it time I make the move to 3.x?  Mark Hammond has
given much to the Python community and I do not intend for this post
to be negative in any way.

pywin32 has been available for 3.x for some time, but you wouldn't be
able to use it since you're currently using wxPython.

You may want to post a more detailed question to
http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-win32 -- Mark hangs out
there and there are plenty of pywin32 experts around who could help as
well.

There are a number of issues using Pythonwin to run a program which uses
a different UI toolkit (eg, wx, Tkinter) and while these have been
around for many years I don't plan on trying to fix it.  IOW, "don't do
that" :)

No problem.  There have been no updates as there is very little to
update (ie, the code hasn't change a huge amount in hg since then).
There will probably be a new version in the next month or so, but that
is quite orthogonal to whether you should move to 3.x - the 3.x version
of Pythonwin hasn't been updated in the same period and is built from
the same source tree, so is likely to have exactly the same problems
(infact is likely to have a few more - there are probably a few 3.x
specific issues still hiding away).
