PyGTK 2.24 Ends PyGTK Project

The release of PyGTK 2.24 marks the end of the PyGTK Project.  Lead Developer John Stowers blogged about the end of the PyGTK era:

I just released PyGTK 2.24, which will almost certainly be the last major PyGTK release. The future of Python on the GNOME platform is PyGObject + GObject Introspection. From my experience over the last few months porting a number of my projects, the future is bright.

Actually the Daily Dose is usually better clued up than most and I think even a "journalist" would manage to notice the error just by reading the headline of the article the link goes to... journalists are good at headlines.
