Pywinauto Has Been Revived This Summer!

Pywinauto is a great Python solution for Windows GUI Automation. It has been intensively developed from 2006 up to 2011 by Mark McMahon. In period 2011-2013 it was maintained by Michael Herrmann (version 0.4.2).

Google Code, the original hosting of Pywinauto, recently has been declared as end-of-life so the revived project is now hosted on GitHub. The first new major version 0.5.0, released on June, 30th was featured with a full support to x64 for Python 2 / Python 3 and several other improvements as well.

The latest pywinauto, version 0.5.3, focused on restoring the partially broken backward compatibility with 0.4.2. The full list of changes can be found here.
These new releases are maintained by Intel Corporation (c) and the Open Source community.

Many thanks to the contributors who helped to make it possible: airelil and moden-py (author of SWAPY, the Pywinauto object inspector).
