    I'm pleased to announce the twenty-second development release of PythonCAD,
    a CAD package for open-source software users. As the name implies,
    PythonCAD is written entirely in Python. The goal of this project is
    to create a fully scriptable drafting program that will match and eventually
    exceed features found in commercial CAD software. PythonCAD is released
    under the GNU Public License (GPL).

    PythonCAD requires Python 2.2 or newer. The interface is GTK 2.0
    based, and uses the PyGTK module for interfacing to GTK. The design of
    PythonCAD is built around the idea of separating the interface
    from the back end as much as possible. By doing this, it is hoped
    that both GNOME and KDE interfaces can be added to PythonCAD through
    usage of the appropriate Python module. Addition of other PythonCAD
    interfaces will depend on the availability of a Python module for that
    particular interface and developer interest and action.

    The twenty-second release contains primarily internal code enhancements
    in regards to the Python language. PythonCAD running under PyGTK releases
    after the 2.4.0 release will now utilize the gtk.ComboBox and the
    gtk.ColorButton widgets, while PythonCAD running under older releases
    will still utilize the same widgets as before. This change removes
    the DeprecatationWarning users with the newer PyGTK release would see.
    A problem where restoring a deleted TextBlock entity was fixed, and a variety
    of other fixes and improvements are also included in this release.

    A mailing list for the development and use of PythonCAD is available.

    Come and join me in developing PythonCAD into a world class drafting
    program!
