    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.
