Hi Jean-Claude,

I'm just finishing a new C++/Qt book "Advanced Qt Programming" at the

I plan to start a new book in October. I have a short list of three I'd
like to write, and a new PyQt book is on the list. I'll will decide on
which one to do over the summer.

I want to see how far PySide gets, particularly regarding Python 3,
since I want the next edition to use Python 3.1 and API 2, and ideally
cover both PyQt and PySide (providing they are compatible enough not to
cause a lot of confusion).

Whether I do it as my next book or as a later one, if I do a second
edition it will probably have a new title (to reflect coverage of PySide
and PyQt), and I plan to drop Part I (Python Programming). That will
leave room for me to increase the coverage of GUI programming (and will
hopefully encourage people to buy my Python 3 book:-)
