wxWidgets 2.6.4 is Out!
« on: March 20, 2007, 06:28:34 pm »
Hello Everybody,

wxWidgets team has released wxWidgets-2.6.4 today. Still an official announcement has not been made. But the tarballs are available from:

I'm yet to compile Code::Blocks with it. I'll post the results after some time.

FYI:

That ftp site is where they asked the people to verify it before putting it on sf.net.
So, it should be out tomorrow on sf.net unless a major problem is found.

Yes Tim, you're correct. :)

I think they will upload it soon to Sourceforge.

Though I could not find WX_2_6_4 branch in CVS. :)

@Tim, does this wx2.6.4 contain all our backported fixes ??
I hope so, then we can fall back on the regular dll (which I will build then asap).

I am compiling C::B now against the trial 2.6.4. Note, they are doing a second trial run, they missed updating the version number to 2.6.4 on the first one. Mine says 2.6.4 so it must be the second trial run.

It looks like all three patches are there. I would wait till you can download it from sf.net.

@Killerbot,

This contains backported fixes. I have tested it and menu related problems are gone. Though Save button in Toolbar problem remained same.

wx 2.6.4 contains one more backported fix which will enable wxLaunchDefaultBrowser() in Linux. One user had recently filed one bug report in Berlios which will get fixed with the newer version of wx.

But as Tim said, you can wait till it is released in Sourceforge.

Regards,

Biplab

The "Save button in Toolbar problem" was NOT fixed by my back-ported patches applied to our own version of 2.6.3, I still don't know where the cause for it is. Note, the problem I see with it is the "Save button" is never grayed out when it is disabled. Note, some other buttons show the same problem, but the "Save button" shows it in both size of buttons the others seem to only show it in the large 22x22 size buttons.

I've noticed this bug for Print icon, too. But your menu related fixes are already available in wx-2.6.4. :)

BTW, they didn't backport couple of fixes to WX_26_BRANCH. Honestly I'm not sure which are those fixes, but I read it somewhere in the mailing list.

I don't know why they didn't tag the CVS files so far.

Regards,

I think they tag it right after the upload to sf.net.

FYI:

2.6.4 is on sf.net, no sign of CVS Label for 2.6.4 being created.

note : on the wx download page this is the actual link when you want the zip version for windows :
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/wxwindows/wxMSW-2.6.3.zip

this is off course incorrect, I think it is (and it does exist ;-) ) :
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/wxwindows/wxMSW-2.6.4.zip
