wxWidgets 2.9.4 Released

Posted on

wxWidgets 2.9.4 has been officially released. It is available right now from SourceForge. Notice that for the first time we experimentally make available not only the sources for this release, but also the binaries for Microsoft Visual C++ users.

Please read the change log if you’re upgrading from a previous version. And please see online documentation for more details.

The 2.9 series bring many improvements compared to 2.8 series such as much better and simpler to use support for Unicode and the new wxOSX/Cocoa port, suitable for development of 64 bit GUI applications under OS X, as well as a huge number of other new features and bug fixes. Compared to the previous 2.9.3 release, the most important change in this release is beta-level support for GTK+ 3 in wxGTK port. Mostly, the focus of this release is, however, on bug fixes in preparation for 3.0. In particular, a lot of improvements have been done in wxOSX/Cocoa port.

While this is still officially a development release because some API details are still not frozen, we believe that 2.9.4 can be used in production environment, especially for the new projects for which (small) changes in behaviour since 2.8 are not a problem. Give it a try and let us know what do you think!
