wxWidgets 2.5.3

Post by Julian » Mon Oct 11, 2004 9:13 am

11th October, 2004

The wxWidgets team is pleased to announce wxWidgets 2.5.3, a development snapshot release.

There are improvements to most ports, but wxMac for OS X has the most significant gains in terms of completeness and visual appearance. GTK+2 apps built with wxWidgets look better thanks to stock button support. On Windows XP with the Classic theme selected, toolbars have a better appearance. Plus many more improvements throughout.

For details of changes, please see changes.txt available from the download page or in the distribution.

We aim to have at most two more releases in the 2.5 series before the stable 2.6 release at the end of this year, or early next year. Meanwhile, API changes will be kept to a bare minimum.

Happy wxWidgets programming!

Julian Smart
On behalf of the wxWidgets team

Yay! Now everyone can stop bugging the lists and forums about when 2.5.3 is coming out, and start asking about 2.6 =)

:?: Why ? others seem have no problem with finding 2.5.3 documentation and if such information is usefull to anybody it fits better in a thread about 2.5.3 announcement.

The datagram sockets work. (or at least they did in 2.4.x)

I did some experimenting with them, and succeded to broadcast data to several clients at once. The problem is, they are ALPHA. I think this is mostly because the interface is (was?) a bit messy and amibigous.

If you read the source, you should be able to figure out how to use them, though.

wxDatagramSocket are used in both xMule and aMule for UDP ports. BUT, I think that nurfus is talking about this patch (that was committed from the SF.net patches archive into the CVS HEAD): http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_i ... aid=835128
