PyQt 4.0beta1 Released

Riverbank Computing is pleased to announce the release of PyQt v4.0beta1
available from http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/pyqt/.

PyQt is a comprehensive set of Qt bindings for the Python programming language
and supports the same platforms as Qt (Windows, Linux and MacOS/X). Like Qt,
PyQt is available under the GPL and a commercial license.

PyQt v4 supports Qt v4 (http://www.trolltech.com/products/qt/index.html).
PyQt v3 is still available to support earlier versions of Qt.

PyQt v4 is implemented as a set of 8 extension modules containing
approximately 400 classes and 6,000 functions and methods.

QtCore
The non-GUI infrastructure including event loops, threads, i8n, Unicode,
signals and slots, user and application settings.

QtGui
A rich collection of GUI widgets.

QtNetwork
A set of classes to support TCP and UDP socket programming and higher
level protocols (eg. HTTP).

QtOpenGL
A set of classes that allows PyOpenGL to render onto Qt widgets.

QtSql
A set of classes that implement SQL data models and interfaces to industry
standard databases. Includes an implementation of SQLite.

QtSvg
A set of classes to render SVG files onto Qt widgets.

QtXML
A set of classes that implement DOM and SAX parsers.

QtAssistant
A set of classes that enables the Qt Assistant online help browser to be
integrated with an application.

A Windows installer is provided for the GPL version of PyQt to be used with
the GPL version of Qt v4 (http://www.trolltech.com/download/qt/windows.html).
It enabes a complete PyQt environment to be installed on Windows without the
need for a C++ compiler.

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. It is also able to load Designer XML files dynamically.

Phil, great news!
However I have one question: my qt4 is built with QT_NO_ACCESSIBI LITY
and when I try to build pyqt I got errors no such method
QWidget.setAcce ssibleName

What should I do? Rebuild qt4 without QT_NO_ACCESSIBI LITY #define?

My qt is 4.1.2

Yes - the current code assumes a fully configured Qt.

I have sent Phil a patch to make PyQt4 aware of some optional features. It's in the snapshots already.

Dear All, I am fairly new to Python. I have found it an easy language to learn and a very usefull one for many tasks.

However since PyQt is rather new, I have not found much documentation on it, or examples in it. The only useful tutorial/book I have found is at www.opendocspublishing.com/pyqt/ but it is...

I am kind of new to Python, and after trying and using wxPython, I found it kind of lacking in easy-to-read documentation, speed at loading, and GUI response-time.

Unfortunately, although TrollTech says Qt is cross-platform, its license strategy has me a bit confused. So here is to...

Hi, I wanted to run a program that is written in PyQt on my mac, and went over to Riverbank to get PyQ 3.13 and SIP 4.1.1 sources. I followed the installation guide except for the compiling python as Macosx already has python. I had no problem with compiling SIP and also no problem with compiling PyQt nor did I have any error message during make install.
