wxDev-C++ 6.10 released

Post by gururamnath » Wed Nov 01, 2006 6:40 am

Hello all,
The wxDev-C++ Team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of 6.10 beta.

http://wxdsgn.sourceforge.net/ for more details.

New features:

*VC++ Compiler Support:
We officially support VC2003, VC2005, and VC6 compilers. The installer ships with wxWidgets 2.7.1 pre-built with VC2005.
Our hope is that the community will step up with pre-built versions of wxWidgets using the other VC compilers. On initial setup, the VC++ and SDK paths are automatically detected in the registry and added to the compiler setup.

*Multiple Project profile support like VC++ :
Projects can be switched "on-the-fly" between different compilers using VC-like profiles. Templates and project .dev files can store most profiles.

*14 new wxwidgets components:
wxDialUpManager, wxHtmlEasyPrinting , wxMediaCtrl , wxRichTextCtrl , wxSTC, wxCalendarCtrl, wxPasswordEntryDialog, wxTextEntryDialog, wxOwnerDrawnComboBox , wxMultiChoiceDialog, wxSingleChoiceDialog, wxTreeListCtrl, wxMessageDialog, wxHyperLinkCtrl.

*Automatic Event creation on Component Double Click.:
Double clicking a component triggers the default event creation for that component.

* Migration Wizard :
Automatically updates pre-6.10 designer forms to the new format.
6.10 use a cleaner designer form format. Existing projects will be automatically updated to the new format when they are initially loaded.

*New docking windows:
Replaced wxDev-C++'s inspector windows with JEDI JVCL docking manager windows. This makes for better floating and docking plus gives a cleaner look to the property/class/file inspector.

* Sof.T's wxDev-C++ Programming Book :
Sof.T's created a PDF book for programming with wx-Dev-C++

*Added the Ctrl+Alt+Up/Down shortcut keys for source navigation

*Changes to Control ID view to easily find the duplicate IDs.
*Bug fix for Control combo not getting updated on insert or deletion.

*Fixed Control list not getting updated properly on insert and delete.
*If XRC is activated, create a blank XRC file on project initialization.
*Fixed many bugs with code completion, from function name parsing, to code tooltip appearances, to proper function parameter highlighting.
*Fix for Bug#1432495 - Crash on Form Close.
*Fixed cut/copy/paste from the event property inspector.
*Fix for wxBitmapButton (Bug #1435728, 1554549).

*Fixed single-line assembly regular expression.

*Fixed crash when changing form options (Bug #1455511).
*Fixed wxListBox (Bug #1459358, 1525055).
*Fixed menu bar affects height of status bar (Bug #1496564).
*Corrected sizers (Bug #1518675).
*Fixed staticbox class declaration (Bug #1548846).
*Disabled F12 Full-screen mode until bug can be fixed properly.

ps: Use of Contrib and Third party components requires the users to manually add the corresponding lib file in the profile. This process will be automated in the next release.
