D-Bus 0.35 "In a Bind" has been released.  There are numerous bug fixes

out of the service and glib modules.  In order to use the glib mainloop
one must simply import dbus.glib after importing dbus.  This will allow
other mainloops to be readily integrated into the python bindings in the

Even more rocking is that both the GLib and Python bindings show up in
the tutorial for the first time.  That is right, real documentation to
