Gtk+-2.0 (it is now official that they will be calling it that rather than
1.4 -- so we have gtk 2.0, gnome 2.0 and python 2.0) is available from
cvs. There is no usable gnome-libs-2.0 at the moment, and won't be for a
few more months. Python-2.0b1 is supposed to be out soon, but you can get
it from cvs with the following root under the module python:

As I said in the message, I just hacked together enough of the gtk
wrappers to put a GtkLabel inside a GtkWindow and start the main
loop. There will be a while before there is any useful gtk+-2.0 based
pygtk stuff to play around with. Gtk+ is still a bit unstable (I am
currently waiting for the GObject signals implementation), so don't
expect things too soon. I have ported over most of the useful stuff from
the extension-class-branch for hacking on gtk+-2.0 support.

If you downloaded the pygtk extension-class-branch, I think there was a
file ExtensionClass.stx in there that is the ExtensionClass
documentation. If it is not there, you should be able to find it on
either www.digicool.com or www.zope.org.
