ANN: SIP v4.3 Released

Discussion in 'Python' started by Phil Thompson, Sep 4, 2005.

  1. Riverbank Computing is pleased to announce the release of SIP v4.3 available
    from http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/sip/.

    SIP is a tool for generating Python modules that wrap C or C++ libraries. It
    is similar to SWIG. It is used to generate PyQt and PyKDE. Full
    documentation is available at
    http://www.river-bank.demon.co.uk/docs/sip/sipref.html.

    SIP is licensed under the Python License and runs on Windows, UNIX, Linux and
    MacOS/X. SIP requires Python v2.3 or later (SIP v3.x is available to support
    earlier versions of Python).

    This release includes the following changes:

    - Python's cyclic garbage collector is fully supported
    - support for mapping between Python and C++ exceptions
    - support for __pos__ and __abs__
    - the support for accessing C structure members has been greatly improved
    - C structures can have constructors and destructors defined so that they can
    be made to behave more Pythonically.

    Other features of SIP include:

    - support for Python new-style classes
    - generated modules are quick to import, even for large libraries
    - support for Qt's signal/slot mechanism
    - thread support
    - the ability to re-implement C++ abstract and virtual methods in Python
    - the ability to define Python classes that derive from abstract C++ classes
    - the ability to spread a class hierarchy across multiple Python modules
    - support for C++ namespaces
    - support for C++ exceptions
    - support for C++ operators
    - an extensible build system written in Python that supports over 50
    platform/compiler combinations.
