The old SOAP KEGG API will not be available after Dec 2012.

The new API is built upon REST.

I completely agree and happy to see I'm not the only one who endured a hard time...

According to their indications, it's been moved on the kegg.jp website (instead of genome.jp. So jump here ;-)

EDIT: After digging a bit, I just made a tutorial (using iPython notebook which is awesome) on how to query KEGG using REST in Python. I hope you'll find it useful:

Hi, do you know any way to get the KGML file of a certain pathway rather than the image? Thanks!

The only way I know is unfortunately by using the non-free access to KEGG. I guess there are alternatives, but as I had the easy solution in hand, I've not looked at it.
