PyS60 1.9.1 is out!

by Pankaj Nathani

PyS60 1.9.1 is now released…

Here is what PyS60 1.9.1 has to offer:

– Better interpreter startup and sis installation time than in 1.9.0. We’ll optimize
this further in the future releases.

Uninstall PyS60 1.9.0 before installing 1.9.1 to get the feel of actual installation time.

– All the Python files in the runtime sis are compiled into .pyc files and
included in a zip file. sys.path is updated with the path of this zip file.
This reduced the interpreter startup time considerably.

– A more generic error message is displayed when trying to load an application
without the PyS60 Dependencies installed.

– Support for building just a is provided. Refer build, build_emu,
build_device help of

– Unlike 1.4.x, a single SDK zip contains both gcce and armv5 link libraries.
Separate SDK zips are provided for 3rdEd, 3rdEdFP1 and 3rdEdFP2.

– The default mode of ensymble py2sis command is changed to ‘pycore’. All
scripts which refer to pys60 modules socket and calendar should use the new
names – btsocket and e32calendar to use the S60 functionality in pycore mode.
Also renamed “Prioritize PyS60 module library” to “1.4.x compatibility mode”
on the UI of application packager.

Since PyS60 1.9.x have moved to Maemo garage, it can be downloaded from
