PySide: Python for Qt version 1.0.0 release candidate 1 "The name doesn't matter" released



  • The PySide team is proud to announce the first release candidate of PySide:
    Python for Qt version 1.0.0. We consider PySide quality already high enough
    for the 1.0 release, and to ensure a high-quality 1.0 release, we are
    providing a release candidate to catch any last-minute regressions. Please
    pound this release hard to help us verify there are no serious outstanding
    issues!

    This is a source code release only; new versions of PySide and the toolchain
    components have been tagged in our git repositories [1] and the respective
    source code tarballs are available via our download wiki pages [2]. We hope
    our community packagers will be providing binary packages shortly.

    Major changes since 1.0.0 beta 5

    Since beta 5, no new features have been added. Instead, a total of 28 bugs
    have been fixed. See the list of fixed bugs at the end of this message.

    Path towards the 1.0 release

    We intend this to be the release candidate in the literal sense of the term:
    only major regressions and critical bugs will be fixed between the release
    candidate and 1.0 final. Therefore, fixes to any bugs in our Bugzilla [3] with
    priority less than P1 will be applied only after the 1.0 release. However,
    please file any bugs you find -- the bug reports are vital in both increasing
    the PySide product quality and in ensuring that your issues get resolved in a
    timely manner!

    Barring any major quality issues, the 1.0 release will happen in two weeks
    from now. After that, maintenance work for fixing bugs and improving the code
    quality will continue, as well as work towards more substantial improvements
    such as Python 3 support and memory footprint optimization.

    About PySide

    PySide is the Nokia-sponsored Python Qt bindings project, providing access to
    not only the complete Qt 4.7 framework but also Qt Mobility, as well as to
    generator tools for rapidly generating bindings for any C++ libraries.

    The PySide project is developed in the open, with all facilities you'd expect
    from any modern OSS project such as all code in a git repository [1], an open
    Bugzilla [3] for reporting bugs, and an open design process [4]. We welcome
    any contribution without requiring a transfer of copyright.

  • Great work! I'm looking forward for the final release!

    However, as the project is sponsored by Nokia, to provide Python support for mobile phones (I read it somewhere on the project's website), will there be any repercussion on the project? (Reference to http://blog.qt.nokia.com/2011/02/14/update-on-qt/, for example.) I didn't read anything about it...
