[SciPy-user] conforming to Python GIL...

Hi,

I use a lot of ConVeX OPTimsation and fortran (via f2py) routines in my 
Traits app.

As I want to compute the data and want to display them, I use threads.

The issue I get is that data displayed (using Chaco2) are not updated 
(app is frozen) while computing the input data.

 From D. Morrill's answer (the Traits guru ;-)), it appears that cvxopt 
(and solve() from scipy, in fact) and fortran modules does not release 
the "Python GIL (Global Intepreter Lock)".

This is very bad to hear as the display is not updated (after a window 
popup, left blank, or one can't handle properties display data).


Someone can gives an helping hand on this issue ?


TIA.

Cheers,
