Any reason the second RC uses wxWidgets 3.1.1? Instead wxWidgets 3.0.3?

Note: There is no release currently numbered 3.1.1; are you using wxWidgets git master?

==> means it is absent in wx303 and wx2812, right ?

Why jeopardize all the rest for this one feature ?

The first RC uses wx2812; me I would call the wx311 an beta release that contains HiDPI support to reduce people who do not have/need HiDPI from downloading it.

Both are rc. Please test both and report problems.
If you report problems about differences between the two versions, it will be even better.

If the wx3.1 build is found to be too troublesome we could remove it.

Is the release candidate available as a non-installer (ie. just a zip file like the nightly builds)?

Nope obviously. We want people to test the installer.
