Tkinter / Tk 8.5

Today has been released a first beta of Tk 8.5, including a Ttk
(tile) style engine, which makes possible the native look
of widgets on MS
platform, without having to install any extension.

http://wiki.tcl.tk/11075
http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/m...bmail.nist.gov

Is there a chance it will be included in 2.5.x, 2.6 or 3.0 ?

This is just a guess, but:
The beta: no way for anything.
2.5.x: also very unlikely
2.6: unlikely unless release is _soon_ (first alpha of 2.6 is out)
3.0: much more likely, 3.0 won't be out for some time.

It won't be: tcl/tk development is quite slow. There have been several
months between each 5 or 6 alpha release and between the last alpha and
the beta. So don't expect the official release to come soon...
3.0: much more likely, 3.0 won't be out for some time.
This would be my guess too...

Did you know that a wrapper for use with Tk 8.4.x is located here?

http://tkinter.unpythonic.net/wiki/TileWrapper

This does require a separate installation of the Tile libraries, but
those can be obtained from ActiveState.

I use this wrapper myself on OS X with a commercial application I
develop, and Tile makes a big difference.

(I maintain and update this wrapper at the wiki, but am not the original
author.)

I'd say that Tk 8.5 will be out before Python 3.0: the beta phase should
be fairly efficient on Tk.
