The 25 march 2006 SPECIAL wx 2.6.3 build is out.
« on: March 25, 2006, 09:41:44 pm »
Get quick announcements through the RSS feed http://www.codeblocks.org/nightly/CodeBlock_RSS.xml
A link to the unicode windows wxWidgets 2.6.3 dll for Code::Blocks : http://download.berlios.de/codeblocks/wxmsw26u_gcc_cb_wx2.6.3.7z
For those who might need this one (when no MingW installed on your system) : the mingw10m.dll : http://download.berlios.de/codeblocks/mingwm10.7z


The 25 March 2006 build is out.
  - Windows : http://download.berlios.de/codeblocks/CB_20060325_rev2258_win32_wx2.6.3.7z


The good news, I build both, the bad news : CB does not startup. Probably it is the wx dll, but I don't have time at this very moment to further investigate (sorry), but both are available here, so maybe you only need to build one of the 2. ;-)

The problem is that CB can't find something in the wx dll :
The procedure entry point _ZNK7wxRegEx7MatchesEPKwij could not be located in the dll wxmsw26u_gcc_cb.dll, so it seems some wxRegEx changes ?

If someone else found the solution in the meantime, please post it here (maybe a link to your build of the dll ??)


Cheers,
Lieven

changes I found to the wx/regex.h

    // len may be the length of text (ignored by most system regex libs)   ///<---------------- this line
    //
    // may only be called after successful call to Compile()
    bool Matches(const wxChar *text, int flags = 0) const;
#if wxABI_VERSION >= 20603   <------------------------------------------ This part
    bool Matches(const wxChar *text, int flags, size_t len) const;
    bool Matches(const wxString& text, int flags = 0) const
        { return Matches(text.c_str(), flags, text.length()); }
#endif <------------------------------------------------------------------

I think you've probably inadvertently mixed DLL and EXE versions. A clean compile of wxWidgets 2.6.3 and of a fresh checkout of the C::B sources works fine, with the single notable exception of the toolbars not being sized correctly (as I noted previously with the wx 2.6.3 release candidate).

stupid me, just discovered that my wx dll was still the 2.6.2.
So it does work.

First thing I notice, the toolbars are way too big, and the debug toolbar is not visible (thought selected to be visible).

after switching back to normal CB and wx 2.6.2, my build toolbar was out of place, but I could drag it back into place, the debug toolbar however remains disappeared !!!

If you delete the layout section in default.conf, all toolbars will be visible again.

unfortunately the wx bug did not get fixed, did anyone ever ask on the wx mailing list about it? and the toolbars are too long, as others have said. The find, replace, save, and stop debugging buttons in the toolbars are still colored when they are not supposed to be colored... I know that its falsified, but C::B seems faster than the wx2.6.2 version.... Nothing really improved, except maybe a psuedo-speed increase and scaled dialogs... But, it introduced problems into C::B as well, so I guess we will have to delay 1.0 some more  :x

On behalf of the Code::Blocks Team, I would like to thank you both for your kind words and appreciation...
You might want to build C::B with wx2.4 and/or gtk1.2. It 'd be buggy there too. So you 'd have more nice things to say.

Now, for the rest of you people that insist on building C::B using the recommended versions of libraries, please don't judge us too harsh... we 're working on it...

Thank you again.
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

When i try to start it i get an wxWidgets fatal error that tells me that it uses Unicode and requires Windows NT/2000/XP

So which of the builds runs under WinME ?

And If i understand it right it runs independant from the old installation is this right ?

nightly builds don't run on win9x, but somewhere this week I will create a new ansi build. And hopefully I have some spare time soon, to work on the libunicows.

Hello,

Well, it is not really useful to say it is so buggy, which IMO it is not. If you find some bugs, then check if they are not already posted on BerliOS. If not post them on BerliOS and eventually on the forum.

Please also note that it is since the release of wxWidgets 2.6.3-RC1 that I am using 2.6.3 without problems, except the already known layout problem(s).

Best wishes,
Michael

That would be realy good. I need a new one for OGRE. Isn't there an older Nightly build for Win9x already ?
