Some one has written a RAD IDE for wxWidgets based on the gcc compiler.

you can find it at
http://wxdsgn.sourceforge.net/

It looks nice but I can't tell whether it's integrated into Dev-C++ or if that's just the name of the program.

I'll stick with DialogBlocks as I had my boss buy me a copy and really love it but it's always nice to see competition (especially free competition with a generous author).

MOD: I've moved this to the right forum. Also, I got rid of the cross-post.

It seems like a hack of devcpp, very preomising yet still buggy. Lets just hope for the author to keep the good work.

The Dev-Cpp core developer (Colin) agreed to merge the wx-devcpp code to the current cvs branch. I guess Dev-Cpp will support wx form designer officially within few months. Since I had personal problems for the past 2 months, I was not able to concentrate on the bug fixes /enhancements and merges. I guess, I'll be able to work on the wx form deisgner in the coming days.

If some one wants to be a beta tester, please let me know, I'll add your names in the devlopment list.

Thanks,

@gururamnath:

Thank you very much for wxDev-Cpp. I am glad to hear that you will continue your work at the project.

I have posted some of my thoughts of the ultimate cross-platform-IDE in the IDE-related forum.

Hm, yes, I would like to be a beta tester ;-)

I'd be glad to test it.

Hi All,
Thanks for your replies. Yesterday, I completed a merge of the wx-devcpp code with the main dev-cpp branch. Also I resolved couple of issues that colin was complaining about. I have submitted the merge. I guess Colin would review it and make them available in the dev-cpp branch.

Once the code is available in the dev-cpp branch, I'll start working on the bugfixes and enhancements.

I'm really happy to see you people volunterring for the beta testing. Since I couldnt see your email address, can you please send an email to

guru ram nath @ yahoo . com (remove all spaces and send the mail).

I'll have your email address in my address book.

-thanks,

Guru Kathiresan

Looks promising! Can you update it to use wxWidgets 2.5.2? :)

It will be in the next release. I was waiting for UpCase to create the devpack., it seems UpCase has created one for 2.5.2.

Thanks for the quick reply. Would also be great if Dev-C++ use MinGW's ported GCC v3.4.1... (which contains many bug-fixes and PCH support) :D
