PyQt is the set of Python bindings to Trolltech's GUI toolkit and
contains 300 classes and over 5,750 functions and methods. Classes
include access to Qt's XML parser, SQL support, as well as a
comprehensive range of user interface widgets.

PyQt supports all versions of Qt under Windows and UNIX/Linux, and
Qt/Embedded for the Sharp Zaurus and the Compaq iPAQ.

Binary packages are provided for the non-commercial edition of Qt under
Windows and for the Zaurus (which may also work with the iPAQ).

Changes in this release include...

- support for Qt's thread classes
- support for Qt/Embedded
- addition of the qtpe (Qt Palmtop Environment) module

Included with PyQt is pyuic which generates Python code from GUIs
created with Qt Designer.
