DO NOT USE wxWidgets version 2.8.5
« on: August 29, 2007, 02:57:18 am »
FYI:

They just updated the wxWidgets to version 2.8.5 in SVN; no idea if it builds or not.

Great what are the main changes? And what's with v2.9? Any news on that?

The wxWidget website is of no use for informations on the development of wxWidgets :(

And for when can we expect Version 2.9 and 2.8.5 to be released?

I haven't read anything about Vista support, what's the status on it?

No idea on 2.9.0.

I would guess less than a month for 2.8.5; since they updated the version and have started RC tests on it.

Once they put up a RC on sourceforge.net the release is in about 1 to 2 weeks.

I'm facing a problem with wx-2.8.5. :(

Recently I replaced OpenSUSE with Fedora Core 7 in my work pc. So I downloaded wx-2.8.5 from York mirror (6th September 2007 one) and compiled C::B with it.

Now the editor window is half-filled with line number. And I've to work on the right half of the editor window. It's really an annoying one. Can anyone confirm this??

Here is the screenshot of the problem I'm facing.

Have you tried changing the margin width in editor settings?
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

No I didn't.

And changing the margin width solved it. Thanks a lot. :D

darn, juist build wx dll, then rebuild CB --> error on startup.

The procedure entry point _ZN13wxAuiNotebook7SetFontERK6wxFont could not be located in the wxmsw28u_gcc_cb.dll

wx-2.8.4 dll is being loaded instead of wx-2.8.5 dll. I faced this problem. But after I removed all traces of wx-2.8.4 dll from path, it went away. :)

That's bad. I've compiled wx-2.8.5 last night and it worked well. :)

Line number problem is a wxGTK bug. :)

The wxWidgets devs are talking about a quick 2.8.6 because a few bugs were found after release in 2.8.5

ce> what is/went wrong with 2.8.5 ?

 There is the status bar problem under wxMSW and the fact that calling
Eof() on a stream used by wxTextInputStream (as is done by wxExecute
overload with IO redirection) never returns true any more. I.e. nothing
wrong with packaging (AFAIK), just bugs.

VZ

Been using 2.9 CVS for a while now and so far so good.
Haven't yet delved too deeply into the updated or new code yet though; just notebook, listbook, the same ol stuff.

Forgot to mention I'm using Debian lenny. Most stable pre-release I've seen.

Hello,
wxWidgets 2.8.6 has appeared at the York site => http://biolpc22.york.ac.uk/pub/2.8.6/


Note, they are starting the 2.8.6 release cycle, they normally wait for package issues for a few hours before posting to sourceForge.net
