  1. Riverbank Computing is pleased to announce the release of PyQt v3.16 available

    The main benefit of this release is that it can be installed side by side with
    the soon-to-be-released PyQt v4 (for Qt v4).

    Other changes since the last release include:

    - improved interoperability between QString and Python's string and unicode

    PyQt is a comprehensive set of Qt bindings for the Python programming language
    and supports the same platforms as Qt. Like Qt, PyQt is available under the
    GPL (for UNIX, Linux and MacOS/X), a commercial license (for Windows, UNIX,
    Linux and MacOS/X) and a free educational license (for Windows).

    PyQt is implemented as a set of 9 extension modules containing 300 classes and
    over 5,750 functions and methods.

    PyQt also includes bindings to QScintilla, the port to Qt of the Scintilla
    editor component.

    PyQt can be used either as a rapid prototyping tool, or as an alternative to
    C++ for developing large Qt applications.

    PyQt includes the pyuic utility which generates Python code to implement user
    interfaces created with Qt Designer in the same way that the uic utility
    generates C++ code.

    Third party tools are also available - such as eric3, a comprehensive IDE
    (including an editor, debugger, class browser, integration with Qt Designer,
    re-factoring tools, unit testing tools and integration with source code
    control systems). eric3 is written entirely using PyQt and is available from
