PyKDE (as of about 30 seconds ago) now builds with sip/PyQt 3.10+
using the same basic build system ('configure.py' and friends)
as sip/PyQt 3.10 (actually it's pretty close to 3.11, so that'll
probably be the number on the next PyKDE release).
Left to do - converting %MemberCode to %MethodCode and updating
presip for those so I can generate code for KDE 3.1.5/KDE3.2.;
testing on various platforms; regenerate the docs.
Changes - not much as far as your code or PyKDE features, but:
+ Panel applet support is out for at least this release (it
really belongs in a different package, and will probably end up
+ PyKDE now *requires* Python >= 2.3.0 and also *requires* that
you build sip and PyQt using configure.py for each (they develop
and store installation info that PyKDE needs).
+ KDE 3.1.5 and 3.2 support
+ Hopefully no (or at least fewer) build problems - the system
Phil developed for sip/PyQt is much cleaner and easier to work
with, and therefore the resulting PyKDE configure.py is also.
There no longer is a 'standalone' build.py for PyKDE.
+ Should be sip 4.0 compatible, but haven't explored that yet.
I'll have a better idea early next week where the release stands
and will update again then.
