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

Visit
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

*Corrected sizers (Bug #1518675).
*Fixed staticbox class declaration (Bug #1548846).
*Disabled F12 Full-screen mode until bug can be fixed properly.
