Update ...

Stuart Axon
Hi All,
   We're quite close to being able to release a "1.2" here's an update on recent shoebot development. 

Merging + Cleanups
I've been merging and cleaning up the old branches, which means Gtk3 is getting merged very soon (thanks partly to Dave Crossland reminding me to get typography working here).

This is great as it gets rid of some of (my) most heinous hacks .. in theory stuff should work with pypy .. in practice I get a segfault on Ubuntu so I can't test.

Examples -
- Colours examples are all back, having merged a *very* old branch.
- Audio and other examples; I'm tracking down any bots I've made and adding them, this includes the audiovis ones using pysoundcard.

Livecoding + Gedit Plugins
- Livecoding has been merged and is *much* more stable.
- Much better livecoding support in Gedit - you get a separate tab for errors in live code
- GEdit 2 plugin has been revived and works for Windows users.

All in all, we're quite close to something worth a release - if you haven't used Shoebot for a while, now is definitely a good time to give it a go.

Easier installation
- Created 'vext.gi' and 'vext.pygtk' to solve issues using Gtk2+3 in a virtualenvs, the setup scripts are no longer needed.

Whats left?
- Finish work to make installation really easy, install gedit plugins from setup.py
- Finish getting the IDE working in Gtk3 - in LGM people wanted a standalone IDE, so I've reversed earlier POV that we just support other editors.
 
S++

Correction:   It was Sebastian Oliva who reminded me about typography.

Awesome, once I sort out the last little bumps I'll ping the mailinglist.
