2.4.0 and extra fun

2.4.0 is out. Unicode, Shell Menu, Syntaxt Highlighting for C++/HTML, Loads of bugfixes.
Plus wxPython 2.5.1 works (save some important features, like the prompt, may not work until wxPython implements wxExecute() fully).

Also a new developer joined (who is responsible for the bulk of the unicode stuff).

DrPython CVS and wxPython 2.5.1

wxPython 2.5.1 is out, and it is delicious.

However (at least in the GTK2 version) the async option for wxExecute has not yet been implemented.

This means the prompt will not work.

If you don't use the prompt, then CVS (2.4.0)
should work fine with wxPython 2.5.1.

Otherwise, I recommend sticking to wxPython 2.4.2,
at least until wxPython 2.5.x matures.
