It's awesome! Fantastic! =D> And it isn't expensive~

But a free trial or a community version might brought better selling~

It's really a peak for any followers, Code::Blocks should at least implement some of its features...

In fascination of creating worlds by words, and in pursuit of words behind the world.

Thanks for the praise.
I would love to offer a free trial, but the Visual Studio wizards are HTML and so software protection or time limitation can't be applied. A trimmed down version would not show the real power of this wizard.
Regarding the Community version, its free for all open source developers with substantial contribution to wxWidgets.
