How to Keep a Secret
If your program needs to ask the user for a password, e.g. to connect to a web
site or a database, chances are that it proposes a way to remember this
password and not have to enter it the next time. This is convenient for the
users, but is quite difficult ...

An unexpectedly expected release: 3.1.0 is available
Surprisingly, at least to me, we managed to make 3.1.0 release exactly as planned , i.e. today, without any delays. The price for this is that there are a couple of known problems in this release (see the errata on the release page), but we decided that it ...

3.1.0 Is Coming
Although we've been talking about it since quite some time, this time we're really going to make a new release soon. To be even more precise, I firmly expect to make it this month. Of course, I did wait until January was over to announce it. On the other ha...

If you use #git with submodules, do yourself -- and other people working on the same project -- a favour and upgrade to git 2.7 and run "git config push.recurseSubmodules check" to ensure that you never push references to the not yet pushed submodules again, it's embarrassing when this happens (I know because, err, a friend did this a couple of times...)

Validating XRC
Overview If you write your XRC files by hand (which is probably relatively rare as most people prefer to edit them
visually, but it does happen), and if you are human (which is probably not so
rare), you are bound to make mistakes in them. Some of these mis...

A year in wx
2014 hasn't been the most exciting year for wxWidgets -- among the recent years this honour certainly belongs to 2013, which finally saw the release of the long, long awaited 3.0 release. However quite a few things still happened during it. First of all, th...

Improving Inherently Important Internationalisation Issues
One of the lesser-known advantages of wxWidgets compared to many other
libraries is that, using its API, you can centre a window on the screen and set its colour to grey without having to Americanise your programme. But, as natural as this
behaviour is, and...

I just wanted to ask a question, and this post seemed as good a place as any.  Please pardon me if it is an unwelcome venue.  

Are there any plans for WxWidgets to leverage the Qt toolkit in place of the GTK on Linux?  I realise the default response might simply be: "Use Qt instead," but wouldn't a port of the WxWidget to Qt ease a lot of problems, including internationalization?

Dropping Carbon support under OS X
We would like to remove the old Mac OS X port using Carbon in the upcoming 3.1.0 release because we think nobody should be using it any longer (and we definitely know that nobody building 64 bit applications does because Carbon just doesn't exist in 64 bits...

Build fixes for different gcc distributions under Windows
I've spent most of the day today fixing various compilation issues for the
three most often distributed distributions of gcc under Windows: TDM-GCC , mingw-w64 and the "classic" MinGW trying to ensure that the upcoming
3.0.3 release (as well as the current ...

Attributing the contributions
One of the lesser, but still appreciable, benefits of switching to Git is that now we can properly record the author of the commit (e.g. the author of a patch), in addition to the (less important) person who committed it (e.g. me). While we tried to do this...

wxBusyInfo is one of the classes that it is actually best not to use at all, because it blocks the program UI without allowing to dismiss it, so it is hardly user-friendly and usually performing the long-running operation in a separate thread and providing ...
