Recent Changes for wxPython
wx.ListCtrl: Added a static method named HasColumnOrderSupport which
returns a boolen value indicating if the column ordering APIs (see
next item) are implemented for the current platform.
Added methods for querying and manipulating the ordering of the
columns (in wx.LC_REPORT mode only.) This is not implemented on all
platforms so use HasColumnOrderSupport to find out if the APIs are
supported. The new APIs are: GetColumnOrder, GetColumnIndexFromOrder,
GetColumnsOrder and SetColumnsOrder.
Added wrappers for new WebView classes which came from a successful
Google Summer of Code project this year. This new module allows you
a wx application like we've always been able to do with wx.webkit on
Mac or with the various ActiveX modules that we've had for windows,
except in the new version it uses the exact same API on all platforms
and also provides an implementation for GTK. Currently on Windows the
IE Trident engine is used, and WebKit is used on OSX and GTK. The
code is organized to eventually allow alternate backend renderer
implementations. The GTK version requires at least version 1.3.1 of
libwebkitgtk-dev, which is the default on most of the recent Linux
distributions. Please note that although these new classes and
libraries are using names based on "WebView" I have put the wxPython
verison of them in the wx.html2 module because the wxWebKit project
already produces a wx.webview module for wxPython.
The wx.lib.pubsub package has been updated to the latest verison and
several examples have been added to the samples folder.
