Riverbank Computing is pleased to announce the release of PyQt v4.2
available from http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/pyqt/.
The highlights of this release include:
- The ability to write widget plugins for Qt Designer in Python.
- Integration of the Python command shell and the Qt event loop. This allows
developers to call Qt functions dynamically on a running application.
- Integration of the Qt event loop with the standard Python DBus bindings
available from www.freedesktop.org.
PyQt is a comprehensive set of Qt bindings for the Python programming language
(http://www.python.org/) and supports the same platforms as Qt. Like Qt,
PyQt is available under the GPL and a commercial license. An evaluation
version for Windows is also available.
PyQt v4 supports Qt v4. PyQt v3 is still available to support earlier
versions of Qt.
Python is a fully featured, easy to learn, object orientated scripting
language. With PyQt it can be used either as a rapid prototyping tool, or as
an alternative to C++ for developing large Qt applications. Tools are
available for deploying applications as a single binary executable.
PyQt includes the pyuic utility which generates Python code to implement user
interfaces created with Qt Designer in the same way that the uic utility
generates C++ code.
