For convenience the tarballs only contains intermediary C source generated from our cython source, this means you **do not** need cython to compile the bindings. Full cython sources are publicly accessible from our git repository at:
https://git.enlightenment.org/bindings/python/python-efl.git/

More information about the python bindings can be found at:

= What's New =

No major changes have been made since the last 1.8 release. All the new features of efl and elementary 1.9 has been ported and the usual has been done in fixing bugs and optimizing speed. (see **changes.html** in the tarball for the full list of changes)

= Building and Dependencies =
If you have existing Python-EFL or the old split 1.7 release bindings installed, you may wish to uninstall them before compiling and installing to avoid possible conflicts during install and/or runtime.

To build the bindings you will need the following libraries:
* python (Python 2.6+/3.0+)
* efl (1.9)
* elementary (1.9, optional)
* python-dbus (0.83+, optional)

The setup script detects your installed libraries and builds bindings according to those found.

To install the bindings run:

  (sudo) python setup.py install

To generate the documentation locally you need:
* sphinx (1.0+)
* graphviz (optional)

To build the documentation:

  python setup.py build_doc

For more information on available build options see:

  python setup.py --help
