wxWidgets 2.6.3 released
« on: March 29, 2006, 02:04:59 PM »

As you know, aMule uses wxWidgets for the multiplatform capabilities and virtually anything having to deal with the O.S.

   wxWidgets just got to version 2.6.3 some days ago, and it's the recomended version for aMule, as it was tested heavily with it before release. So, everyone should update, as 2.6.1 has socket bugs and 2.6.2 has a locale crash on startup.

  As usual, my reply to "I have this or that problem" that seem related to wxWidgets, if you're not using 2.6.3 or CVS version of it, will be "update". So... update.

You can download wxWidgets from their own site or pester your distro to update it.

  And have fun.

it's seems ubuntu will not get it that soon :
"If you convince the wx developers to not break api in a stable release such things may be possible. But since 2.6.3 *again* breaks the api chances are slim."

Funny. Can you link me to that info, so I can tell wx-dev? 2.6.3 wasn't suposed to break API.

Given the fact that I contribute to wxWidgets and mainly mantain the network part of it, I feel offended by your statement.

Not to mention that wxWidgets is what makes aMule possible to work on every platform. So think twice before insulting the software you use. I'm seriously thinking about giving you a forum warning.

@kry : here is my ranting with the answer, the guy answering is not an official maintainer of wx, but he's still part of the ubuntu team ...
https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/wxwidgets2.6/+bug/37379

By the way, I'm sorry to ask here, but can anyone explain what is WX ? I cannot see the difference between this and GTK, well actually I have no clue what this is for .. I have deved with C and GTK before, so GTK should be ok, but I still don't get the WX thing.

wxWidgets gives you a single, easy-to-use API for writing GUI applications on multiple platforms. Link with the appropriate library for your platform (Windows/Unix/Mac, others coming shortly) and compiler (almost any popular C++ compiler), and your application will adopt the look and feel appropriate to that platform. On top of great GUI functionality, wxWidgets gives you: online help, network programming, streams, clipboard and drag and drop, multithreading, image loading and saving in a variety of popular formats, database support, HTML viewing and printing, and much much more.

I dont think gtk gives you taht much ;) espicailly not the network part

Thank you for the info, but then why still use GTK, that is what I don't understand, the need to have both of them .. sorry if the question is stupid, but I've been wondering that for weeks ..

You need both because wxWidgets is (partly) a wrapper around GTK (and much more).

wxWidgets is a framework for a lot of things, but for the GUI stuff, it uses GTK behind the scenes (it can optionally use other GUI libraries on other platforms and even on Linux, but GTK is the best and most tested one). That's why you need both.
