ANN: PyObjC 1.3.5


PyObjC 1.3.5 is now available for download at

PyObjC is a bridge between Python and Objective-C. It allows full featured Cocoa applications to be written in pure Python. It is also easy to use other frameworks containing Objective-C class libraries from Python and to mix in Objective-C, C and C++ source.

Python is a highly dynamic programming language with a shallow learning curve. It combines remarkable power with very clear syntax.

The installer package includes a number of Xcode templates for easily creating new Cocoa-Python projects, as well as py2app, a suite of tools for building redistributable Python applications and plugins.

PyObjC also supports full introspection of Objective-C classes and direct invocation of Objective-C APIs from the interactive interpreter.

PyObjC requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later and Python 2.3 or later. PyObjC works with the Apple provided Python installation in Mac OS X 10.3 (and later), MacPython 2.3, and MacPython 2.4.

This release features several bugfixes, improved documentation, new Xcode templates, Tiger support and many major enhancements. See the news file at for more information.

PyObjC is released with an open source license (MIT style).
