I am pleased to announce version 2.15.1 of the Python bindings for GObject.

The new release is available from ftp.gnome.org as and its mirrors
as soon as its synced correctly:

   http://download.gnome.org/sources/pygobject/2.15/

There are two new significant features in this release series, initial
bindings for GIO. Note that these are not complete, please report
missing API in Bugzilla so we know what people are missing.
Codegen has been moved from PyGTK and can now be used without
depending on GTK+, which should be useful for GObject based libraries.

What's new since PyGObject 2.15.1?
         - Rename pygtk-codegen-2.0 to pygobject-codegen-2.0 to avoid
           conflicting with PyGTK (Paul Pogonyshev)

Blurb:

GObject is a object system library used by GTK+ and GStreamer.

PyGObject provides a convenient wrapper for the GObject+ library for use
in Python programs, and takes care of many of the boring details such as
managing memory and type casting.  When combined with PyGTK, PyORBit and
gnome-python, it can be used to write full featured Gnome applications.

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 requires glib >= 2.8.0 and Python >= 2.3.5 to build.
GIO bindings require glib >= 2.16.0.
