Re: Fixes for 3.0.2 without losing support for legacy platforms

Just out of curiosity, what is that you found missing in 3.0.2, that is present in 3.1.1, and you absolutely cannot live without ? Nothing. It's the opposite. I miss the support of legacy operating systems (like Windows 95/98) from 3.1. This is why I would like to stick with 3.0.X. Just wanted to m...

Re: Fixes for 3.0.2 without losing support for legacy platforms

What do we mean by "embarassing" bugs? Crashes and security holes? And by non-embarassing?

Re: Fixes for 3.0.2 without losing support for legacy platforms

How long an "oldstable" branch is expected to be supported in years, months, etc. ? (so how long will the 3.0.X branch receive maintenance fixes?)

Re: Fixes for 3.0.2 without losing support for legacy platforms

Is it guaranteed that if I write my application with wxWidgets from the 3.0.3 branch, it will run on older systems having the 3.0.2 version (e.g. older stable distros of Linux with frozen versions)? I mean, is it true that the 3.0.3 branch will only receive fixes that will not change the API, just s...

Fixes for 3.0.2 without losing support for legacy platforms

Hi there, Assume I want to develop for Windows 98. My only choice is the 3.0.1 release which still supports MSVC 2005 (and thus Windows 98). However, there is a newer release 3.1.0 which supposedly contains all the bugfixes since 3.0.2 but breaks the backward compatibility for legacy systems like Wi...

Wrapped thumbnail list view

I would like to create thumbnails with text. These thumbnails should be auto-wrapped as the main window gets resized. Like Explorer or Control Panel in Windows. Is there a trivial way with wxWidgets?

Something like this.

Re: Developing fast, lightweight apps for all popular and even legacy platforms

How exactly did you test that? The image viewer in the image sample ("Show any imag") has no scrollbars. The main window that displays all the little images does a lot of stuff. I used the wxWidgets-3.0.2/samples/image example which does have a scrollbar. You can scroll the whole canvas from top to...

Re: Will the 2.8 branch receive maintenance fixes?

So as far as I see my best choice would be 3.0.X which is still supported (bugs will get fixed) and I can compile it using MSVC 8.0 (2005).

If < WinXP SP2 support ended from 3.1, which is the minimum version of Windows that 3.0.X will support (e.g. 95, 98, etc.)?

Re: Will the 2.8 branch receive maintenance fixes?

Well, for example if I want to support computers that won't run with newer OSes. But I don't want to open this "is newer better" argument. I just want to know which wx branch is the most unlikely to have bugs. I thought of 2.8 because it's old enough to have all possible bugs been fixed. New feature...

Re: Will the 2.8 branch receive maintenance fixes?

What If I would like to write an application that is functional under Windows 98 as well as on Windows 10?

Which branch would you recommend?

Will the 2.8 branch receive maintenance fixes?

Hi there,

I suppose there will be no more releases from the 2.8 (oldstable) branch, however I'm curious if it is meant to receive backports of critical/security/crash fixes like the latest commit on GitHub from 2015?

Best

Re: Developing on Windows, building on Linux

Thanks. But what if I want to create the VS project from Visual Studio itself, then want to build under Linux. Is there a tool that can read VS projects, then generate Linux Makefiles based on VS projects?
