Devpack for 2.6.0

Do you like to promote your wxWidgets based application or component!? Post it here and let's see what the critics have to say. Also, if you found that ONE wx component the world needs to know about, put it here for future reference.

Upgrading to Dev-Cpp 4.9.9.2 solved the problem. Thanks

I've tried to run my code on both devpack versions and it seems to run a little bit slower with the new devpack 2.6.0 than with the 2.4.2. Is it normal ?

I have made a software with a progress dialog and i can measure the elapsed time while analysing my data. It takes about 5 seconds more with the devpack 2.60.

Getting a bit off-topic there (from this particular threads name), but... what platform is that on?
So I assume the analysing isn't done with wx tools, and the wxProgressDialog itself is slower?
I'm interested in profiling and optimizing wxGTK at places. Let me know.

I won't be helpfull for you cause i use Win XP pro.

I'm telling this here because i don't know if it is linked to the compiler parameters or to the devpack itself.

I have also noticed that my software size with devpack 2.4.2 is 3904ko and is 6784ko with devpack 2.60.

Did you strip the executable?

"strip" is a command to strip not needed stuff from your exe. This can either be done using the -s linker switch or by using "strip". Check your project options ofr that. I was only asking if you did this as you said that the apps got bigger with 2.6.0.

I've tried to put the option but it doesn't change the executable size.

Thank you for creating and distributing this devpak (and the contrib/samples devpaks), it has been very helpful to a newcomer to C++ and a newcomer to wxWidgets :)
