[wxPython-users] ANNOUNCE: wxPython 2.6.3.2


Announcing
----------

The 2.6.3.2 release of wxPython is now available for download at
http://wxpython.org/download.php. This is a mostly bug fix release
and takes care of several "unfortunate features" discovered in the
2.6.3.0 release made last week. A summary of changes is listed below
and at http://wxpython.org/recentchanges.php.
What is wxPython?
-----------------

wxPython is a GUI toolkit for the Python programming language. It
allows Python programmers to create programs with a robust, highly
functional graphical user interface, simply and easily. It is
implemented as a Python extension module that wraps the GUI components
of the popular wxWidgets cross platform library, which is written in
C++.

wxPython is a cross-platform toolkit. This means that the same program
will usually run on multiple platforms without modifications.
Currently supported platforms are 32-bit Microsoft Windows, most Linux
or other Unix-like systems using GTK2, and Mac OS X 10.2+, in most
cases the native widgets are used on each platform.
Changes in 2.6.3.2
------------------

Fixed reference leak in wx.gizmos.TreeListCtrl.GetSelections.

wxMSW: Fixed sizing issue with wx.Choice and wx.ComboBox. This change
was implemented by reverting a prior fix for a different problem
(continuous painting/resizing when a combobox is used as a widget in a
wx.html.HtmlWindow) so a method to fix both problems is still being
investigated.

wxGTK: Fixed potential buffer overrun when pasting from the
clipboard.

Fixed problem in wx.lib.splitter when used on 64-bit platforms. Used
the current length of the list for specifying an append instead of
sys.maxint.

wxMSW: Support added for XP themed owner drawn buttons and bitmap
buttons. For example, if you change the foreground color of a button
it will now be drawn with the XP themed style rather than an ugly
generic button style.

XRCed: Fix for Copy/Paste objects with international characters.

Fixed the equality and inequality operators for some of the basic
data types (wx.Point, wx.Size, wx.Colour, etc.) to no longer raise a
TypeError if the compared object is not compatible, but to just return
a boolean as expected. For example::

wx.Colour(64,0,64) == 123 ==> False

wxMSW: Fixed (again) sizing/positioning issues of calling Realize on
a wx.ToolBar that is not manaaged directly by a frame and that is
already shown.

wxMSW: Fixed wx.Choice/wx.ComboBox so they send events when a new item
is selected only with the keyboard.
