Thank you.
I don't know about the FTP site, but the York site has also been updated today. A setup for wxMSW and the documentation archives have been added :)

For those who are interested in the changelog - these are the changes since 2.8.4
Quote from: changes.txt
2.8.6
-----

All:

- Fixed another bug in wxFileConfig when deleting entries (Axel Gembe)
- Added Portuguese translation (Antonio Cardoso Martins)


All (GUI):

- Added an optimization to UI updates on idle, by only updating when the window
  is shown.
- Multiple centre panes in wxAUI can now be resized.
- Add support for reading alpha data from TIFF images.
 
wxMSW:

- Fixed a bug with a spurious border appearing on wxStatusBar under Windows XP/Vista.

wxGTK:

- Fixed wxSpinCtrl problem not reporting the correct value
  after calling SetValue().
- Fixed problem with key events sometimes being sent to
  parent window. This also solves a problem with being able
  to change the selection of a wxListCtrl while editing a
  label.
- Correct context menu event coming from wxListCtrl to
  have the right ID (not that from the client window).
 
wxMac:

- Fixed a crash in wxToolBar when adding tools with non-standard sizes.

2.8.5
-----

All (GUI):

- Added colour normalization to PNM image handler (Ray Johnston).
- Fixed selecting part of word from right to left in wxHTML (Michael Hieke).
- Selecting text in wxHTML with character precision was made easier, it's
  enough to select half of a character (Michael Hieke).
- Significantly improved startup times of XRC-based applications using
  embedded resources on Unix (requires resources recompilation).
- Fixed freeing of "static" alpha data in wxImage (Axel Gembe).
- Added tab mouse click events to wxAuiNotebook (Ben Williams).
- Option for middle-click tab close in wxAuiNotebook (Ben Williams).
- Added wxAuiNotebook::SetFont, GetTabCtrlHeight, GetHeightForPageHeight.
- Fixed caption clicking being ignored on centred wxAUI panel.
- Added AdvanceSelection, ShowWindowMenu functions and keyboard handling to
  wxAuiNotebook.
- Added wxAUI_NB_SUPPORT for standard wxAuiNotebook art (Langhammer).
- Added event for double clicks on wxAuiNotebook tab background.
- Added events for wxAuiNotebook tab dragging and closing notification.
- Fixed some problems handling unusual wxAUI pane activation order in wxGTK.
- Fixed a problem with resizing floating wxAUI panes.
- Fixed a wxTabFrame leak by deleting all wxAuiNotebook pages in the destructor.
- Added SetBitmap/GetBitmap to wxWizard, to allow e.g. on-the-fly creation
  of bitmap to fit page height.
- Fixed wxXPMHandler::SaveFile for images with more than 92 colors.
- Fixed a crash in wxGrid on creation due to OnSize being called too soon.
- Added XRC handler for wxPropertySheetDialog (Sander Berents).
- API consistency fixes: added wxMenuBar::SetMenuLabel, wxMenuBar::GetMenuLabel,
  wxMenuBar::GetMenuLabelText, wxMenu::GetLabelText, wxMenuItem::SetItemLabel,
  wxMenuItem::GetItemLabel, wxMenuItem::GetItemLabelText, wxMenuItem::GetLabelText.
  Get...Label functions get the raw label with mnemonics and accelerators,
  and Get...LabelText function get the text only without mnemonics/accelerators.
- Fixed a problem with wxSizer::GetContainingSizer failing for nested sizers
  depending on sizer addition order.
- Added Set/GetParentWindow to wxHtmlEasyPrinting to allow reuse with different
  parent windows.
- Fixed a wxRichTextCtrl problem saving a URL to XML.
- Fixed default background and text colours for wxRichTextCtrl.

wxMSW:

- Fix crash when destroying a default button (Tim Kosse).
- Correct problem with page setup dialog when using landscape mode.
- Added msw.font.no-proof-quality system option, see manual for description.
- Fix appearance of notebook with non-top tabs under Windows Vista.
- Fixed bug with symbol resolving in wxStackWalker (Axel Gembe).
- Fixed showing busy cursor for disabled windows and during wxExecute()
- Added wxBORDER_THEME, used automatically by wxTextCtrl in wxTE_RICH[2] mode.
  See wxMSW section in the manual for further details.
- Fix problems with timers on SMP machines in wxAnimationCtrl (Gennady).
- Fixed WinCE compile theme-related error, and WinCE timezone link error
  when using dynamic run-time library. Also fixed localtime link error when
  using Windows Mobile 5.
- Gave toolbars some extra height, without which DoGetBestSize can report a
  size that's smaller than the actual window, causing windows to overlap.
  Removed corresponding hack in wxAUI.
- Fixed wxToolBar background colour problems with some colour schemes such
  as Silver, by setting the background to a known colour.

wxGTK:

- Fixed missing key events in wxGTK1 build.
- Setting foreground colour of single line wxTextCtrl now works.
- More work on setting defaults in GNOME print dialogs.

  not emit any event.

- Always have a transparent sizer grip now.
- Avoid a grow box overlapping a scrollbar.
- Implemented wxALWAYS_SHOW_SB.
- Restricted mouse wheel support to y axis.
- Mouse button handling improvements.

wxMotif:

Hmm, that's bad... I don't see any mention of the wxExecute issue which appeared in 2.8.5...
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

I assume it is this bug
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1793812&group_id=9863&atid=109863

I will try to test this.

This is mainly a bug fix release; please see changes.txt for details. If
you have downloaded 2.8.5, we recommend you use 2.8.6 instead since

before a few days i wanted to test the new MinGW-gcc-4.2.2 compiler,

BTW
Quote
THANKS to TDragon  (John E. / TDM)
Full details at http://www.tdragon.net/recentgcc/ .

because of a rebuild of wxWidgets with gcc-4.2.2 was necessary,
i decided to stay with wxWidgets 2.8.4 and gcc-3.4.4
and built wxWidgets 2.8.6 using gcc-4.2.2

then i thought, it would be a good test to look, if CodeBlocks would build (and even work)
with wxWidgets 2.8.6 and gcc-4.2.2.

therefore i built CB using WxWidgets 2.8.6 and gcc-4.2.2
i was surprised, that this built (slowly because of 1E12 warnings) but successfully ;-)




also i built and activated most of the contrib plugins
and a few others, like ThreadSearch 0.9 and Shellextensions 0.2





today i updated to the recent svn version, since i've read in the logs,
that changes were made in order to reduce the number of warnings, fired by gcc-4.2.
( to be honest, i just removed "-Wall" option after my first build and then everything worked smooth ... ;-)  )

i'm working with this CB-version since a few days, and i'm surprised,
but till now everything works normally and i could'nt detect any flaws ...

conclusion: i'm really surprised, but CB seems to work fine with using wxWidgets 2.8.6 built with MinGW-gcc-4.2.2

I didn't see your posting until now but I believe this was not an issue with wxExecute itself (there were no changes to 2.8.5 at this part of the code) rather than what they did with event handling stuff. This *might* be a possible reason. Anyway - trust me, I would have realised if the bug would still be there. It's gone for sure in 2.8.6. ;-)
