Hi All,

A new stable development release of the Python bindings
for GTK-2 has been released.

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

http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/pygtk/2.24/

Note:
PyGTK 2.24 supports the GTK-2.24 API. New users wising to develop
Python applications using GTK are recommended to use the
GObject-Introspection features available in PyGObject.
Existing authors of PyGtk applications are also
recommended to port their applications to PyGObject
if they wish to take advantage of new features appearing
in GTK-3 and beyond. More information on PyGObject
and GObject-Introspection can be found at;

http://live.gnome.org/PyGObject

PyGTK-2.24 will be the final major release of PyGTK. Additional bug-fix releases
may appear when necessary to maintain compatibility and stability with the
GTK-2.24 series.

What's New:
New features since PyGtk-2.22.0
 * Wrap new API added in GTK/GDK 2.23/2.24
 * Many windows build fixes
 * Many documentation updates and improvements
 * Many bug fixes

Bug reports, as always, should go to Bugzilla; check out
http://pygtk.org/developer.html and http://pygtk.org/feedback.html for
links to posting and querying bug reports for PyGTK.
