I am pleased to announce version 0.4.2 of the Python bindings for

It is available at:


This is the last version before updating the bindings according to the
new Goocanvas API which are changed since the 0.5.0 release.

PyGooCanvas 0.4.2	(Dec 18 2006)

 o Wrapped missing method goocanvas.Group.set_model (Gian Mario)
 o Wrapped missing methods of goocanvas.ItemView (Gian Mario)
 o Fixed function item_view_simple_item_changed (Gian Mario)
 o Improved documentation (Gian Mario)


 Goocanvas [1] is a canvas widget for GTK+, It is similar in many ways
 FooCanvas, hence the name, but it uses cairo for rendering, it has a
 model/view split, and uses interfaces for items & views (so you can
 easily turn any application object into a canvas item or view).

 PyGooCanvas is a wrapper which exposes the goocanvas API to the
 python world.  It is fairly complete; most of the API are covered.

 The documentation is a work in progress.

 Like the GTK+ library, PyGTK and GooCanvas itself PyGooCanvas is
 licensed under  the GNU LGPL, so is suitable for use in both
 free software and proprietary applications.

PyGooCanvas requires:

 - Goocanvas >= 0.4.0
 - PyGObject >= 2.10.1 (2.11.3 to build the docs)
 - PyGTK >= 2.8.4
 - PyCairo >= 1.2.0
