wxWidgets 2.9.5 Released
wxWidgets 2.9.5 has been officially released. It is available right now from SourceForge and our FTP mirror and, as usual, contain the sources and the documentation in Unix (.tar.bz2) and Windows (.zip or .7z, with the latter being significantly smaller) formats. Continuing the experiment started with 2.9.4, we also provide the pre-built binaries for Microsoft Visual C++ 2008, 2010 and 2012 users.
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. This release should be the last one before the 3.0 release planned soon, so testing it is even more important than usual. Please do download it, build your applications with it and report bugs if anything doesn’t work correctly.
Also notice that while this is still officially a development release, we consider it to be stable enough to be used in production environment and using it is strongly recommended for any new projects for which compatibility with the previous 2.8 is not important. As for the existing projects, please try them out with 2.9.5 as this is the last chance to fix any compatibility problems before 3.0.
