Comment 1 Peter Robinson 2015-11-15 12:17:07 UTC
According to the upstream changelogs this is in the 1.3 dev releases:

* README: Add note that 1.3.2 has Python 3 support, and that this will be in
  stable release 1.4.0.

1.3 has been in development for a long time, I only want to move to it when I know it's going to be stable. I also need to test it to ensure no regressions in apps that use it, we had issues when we moved from 1.0 to 1.2

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.

Comment 3 Peter Robinson 2016-07-05 19:41:16 UTC
I see stable 1.4.0 release is now out, will be investigating updating this soon. Need to ensure the API/ABI is compatible with 1.2.x and if not what the impact is so any details here would be useful.
