For what it's worth, I'm successfully using PyGTK 2.12.1 under Python
2.6, on a Gentoo Linux box.
My program doesn't exercise every single dark corner of PyGTK, so I
can't conclusively claim that there are no compatibility bugs to stomp,
but I've been looking for problems and haven't seen any.
2.6 seems very compatible with 2.5. The main difference I've seen is
lots of warnings from code that uses newly deprecated modules, in
particular md5 and sha.
