After a cleaning and rebuilding Codeblocks and the XPMEditor, I have no more crashes !!
Yes!!

Now I can focus on improving the performance for wxGTK.

Something I noticed while using:
1.) Although clicking on ICO (icon resource) files works, the editor does not handle them correctly, i.e. all is white.
2.) XPM files with multiple resources are handled as if they had just one image. After saving the other images are all lost.
3.) The tool section "image modification" has no icons - only buttons with long text. This is probably by design.

...besides I created / manipulated quite some resource files meanwhile. It seems to have become quite stable. Good work! :-)

I will look into it. It is probably a wxWidgets problem though (but maybe I am calling the wrong image handler)

2.) XPM files with multiple resources are handled as if they had just one image. After saving the other images are all lost.
I did not know that XPM can have multiple images into it. It can be a bit tricky to handle (Open multiple editors ? Ask the user which image to open ?). Besides, wxWidgets handler does not make provisions for it. But since I have already patched it (to handle XPM with C++ comments inside), I can maybe improve it.

3.) The tool section "image modification" has no icons - only buttons with long text. This is probably by design.
This is by design. The reason is: I have not found explicit icons for them. It can be improved, but it is not critical.

...besides I created / manipulated quite some resource files meanwhile. It seems to have become quite stable. Good work! :-)
Thank you for the support ! There is still a crash occuring on Linux, to fix.

I have started to program a new Code::Blocks plugin.
I've sent you a patch through the patch tracker at SF.net to make this plugin compile again on recent C::B, including project files for wx30 andwx30-64 bit. Feel free to apply.

BTW: I am not the only one still using this plugin...

So much time as passed since I have last modified this plugin that I supposed nobody were interested anymore. I became quite busy with other topics (heavy workload at work + founding a family - 2nd kid underway) that it shifted low on my priority list.

I am still using it everyday (for icons works mostly).
I will apply your patch on the source forge repo, and maybe apply mine as well
Do not expect me to be lightning fast unfortunately.

Thanks for the contribution and the support.
