Hi all,

   I'm proud to announce that the first stable release
1.0.0 of pygtkmvc has been released.

--------------------------------
**   pygtkmvc version 1.0.0   **
--------------------------------

pygtkmvc is a fully Python-based implementation of the
Model-View-Controller (MVC) and Observer patterns for the
PyGTK2 toolkit.

MVC is a pattern that can be successfully used to design and
develop well structured GUI applications. The MVC pattern
basically helps in separating semantics and data of the
application from their representation.

The Observer pattern helps to weaken dependencies among parts
that should be separated, but need to be connected each other.

pygtkmvc provides a powerful and still simple infrastructure
to help designing and implement GUI applications based on
the MVC and Observer patterns.


--------------------------------
**         Features           **
--------------------------------

The framework has been designed to be:
- Essential and small, it does only what it was designed for.
- Not an external dependency for your application: it fits
   in 80KB and can be released along with it.
- Easy to understand and to use; fully documented.
- Portable: straightly runs under many platforms.

Version 1.0.0 is the first stable release. Main features are:

- Observer pattern supports pythonian containers and user-defined
   classes.
- Support for multi-threading in models.
- Support for gtk models like TreeModel and TextBuffer.
- Bug fixes.
- Documentation and several examples are provided.
