1½ years later, I have the same question. I just tried a Windows Forms app under Mono/Linux, but was appalled by the uglyness of it. No where near the native look that wxWidgets delivers.

Is the December 2007 release the last word on wx.net, or will the project be continued?

I'm interested in Symbian as well now, so I'm bumping this thread.

Personally I would go for C++ any day had it only a standard GUI, multithreading and garbage collection. Without this I find C++ to be too much of a hassle. There's hope though. Multithreading and optional GC are being considered for the next major C++ upgrade. I agree about the GUI and multithread...

I've made the same experience recently. I thought Azureus was responsive when I started to use it, but now I've noticed that it's only true as long as it's the only app running. It's too much of a resource hog. Trying out different UML drawing tools, I tested the one that's included in Suns IDE. It'...

Book recommendations? Considering some input in this thread, I figure it's time for me to take a deeper look at Java. Can anyone recommend any Java books that go into the sort of detail an old C++'er would want? By that, I mean information about the cost of using certain containers and language con...

That could be interesting to test, I'll check that on my Ubuntu VMWare machine when I get back.

I completely forgot about Azureus, the Java BitTorrent client. It takes a while to start and is quite a memory hog, but once up and running, it's fast, responsive and even has a native look and feel.

That's what I keep hearing, so I'm surprised by the sluggish performance of Java apps on my computer, ArgoUML being the latest dissapointment.

xrvjorn: Did you test without specifying the extra, unneeded libs in the multi-lib configuration? Also, AFAIK, the main difference that matters is when building either debug configurations, or when building dynamic libraries (where both cases result in non-stripped libs). No, I just specified multi...

Monolithic vs multi-lib

Is there any practical difference between linking with the monolithic lib vs multiple, separate libs? AFAIK, the linker should only include referenced object modules from a lib, so the executable file should be the same regardless of whether you linked with the mono or multi libs. Testing with the s...

Java vs C++ benchmarks

Since this is a forum for cross platform developers, I guess that a few of you have looked into Java. It has become quite a nice language after the addition of parameterized types (C++ templates) and enumerated types, so I did some googling for benchmarks. Apparently, there are lots of benchmarks ou...

Found the problem! The paths in the system config pointed to VS 6, so DialogBlocks and nmake used VC 6, while the VS2005 IDE, which I used to compile the minimal sample, used it's own paths.

Thanks Joel, your comments about the differences between VC versions helped me find the problem.

Yes, and it works when i set it to "No". When I look at the command line in VC2005, it reads /O2 /I "D:\Dev\wxWidgets\wxWidgets-2.6.3\include" /I "D:\Dev\wxWidgets\wxWidgets-2.6.3\lib\vc_lib\mswud" /D "WIN32" /D "_DEBUG" /D "_WINDOWS" /D "_UNICODE" /D "__WXMSW__" /D "__WXDEBUG__" /FD /EHsc /MTd /Zc:...

That's odd. I use VC2005, and if I set built-in wchar_t to "Yes", I get these link errors when building the "Minimal" sample from the wxWidgets book: minimal.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "wchar_t const * const wxEmptyString" ([email protected]@3PB_WB) referenced in function "protect...

I forgot to mention, that I had to set "Treat wchar_t as built-in type" to "No".

Have you told VC++ to use static runtime libraries or DLLs (Project properties/Config props/C++/Code Generation)? I had the same problem myself, since I was using static RTL. Either do as Priyank says, or recompile the wxWidget libraries for use with static RTL: nmake -f makefile.vc UNICODE=1 SHARED...
