GObject is an abstraction layer that allows programming with an object paradigm that is compatible with many languages. It is a part of Glib, the core library used to build GTK+ and GNOME. This package contains the Python Cairo bindings for GObject. It is mostly used by other bindings to map their GObjects to Python objects.

    2016-03-24 - Iain Lane <> pygobject (3.20.0-0ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium * New upstream release. * Fixes crash (LP: #1538471) * debian/patches/0001-test_gerror_novalue-Don-t-define-an-error-the-test-d.patch: Take patch from upstream bug to fix a test failure.

    2016-01-19 - Matthias Klose <> pygobject (3.18.2-2build1) xenial; urgency=medium * No-change rebuild to drop python3.4 support.

    2015-10-30 - Michael Biebl <> pygobject (3.18.2-2) unstable; urgency=medium * Fix rules when deciding for which architecture the test-suite failure should be non-fatal. Use filter instead of findstring, as findstring also matches substrings (e.g. adding kfreebsd-amd64 did also make the amd64 test-suite non-fatal). * Make the test-suite fatal for all architectures so we can more easily detect failures. * Make the test-suite non-fatal for the the -dbg builds. With python3.4-dbg and python3.5-dbg the test-suite currently fails. We still run it to get the result for all architectures.

    2015-10-29 - Michael Biebl <> pygobject (3.18.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium * New upstream release. * Run test-suite on all architectures again. * If the test-suite fails and we ignore the failure, log this accordingly.

    2015-10-04 - Simon McVittie <> pygobject (3.18.0-1) unstable; urgency=medium * Team upload [ Michael Biebl ] * Drop the XS-Testsuite: autopkgtest field, no longer required [ Simon McVittie ] * New upstream release - works with Gtk 3.18 typelib (Closes: #800870) * Fix FTBFS with dpkg-buildpackage -A (sbuild --arch-all-only) as used on the official arch:all buildd * Build-depend on dh-python as recommended by dh_python

    2015-06-22 - Michael Biebl <> pygobject (3.16.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium * New upstream release. * Track stable releases in debian/watch. * Drop obsolete Conflicts/Replaces/Provides and Breaks/Replaces from pre-wheezy. * Update Homepage. * Use Expat license instead of "MIT/X11 (BSD like)" since the license specification recommends to use Expat if it matches.

    2014-09-23 - Martin Pitt <> pygobject (3.14.0-1) unstable; urgency=medium * New upstream release. * Drop Add-protection-against-attempts-at-importing-static-.patch, included in this version. * Refresh 01_cairo_region.patch to apply to this version. * Bump g-i dependencies to >= 1.39 as per upstream * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no changes necessary).

    2014-08-30 - Sjoerd Simons <> pygobject (3.13.90-1) experimental; urgency=medium * New upstream release

    2014-04-15 - Martin Pitt <> pygobject (3.12.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium * New upstream bug fix release. * Upload to unstable.
