It should be ok, but just make a backup before you try. You can compare the formats of the .dev files for yourself by looking at them in a text editor.

Sure there it is, but how can I define my own keywords.
Or "customizable" stays only for customizable fonts?

I suppose that's it. Customizable stays for the fonts. I've looked at the Dev-C++ features and there is the same feature promoted: "Customizable syntax highlighting editor", I think I misunderstood it, because I really wanted that feature.

Besides that, are there improvements in wxDev-C++ over Dev-C++ that aren't related with wxWidgets? I'm using the IDE only for console applications.

I've readen the debugger is improved, is it so?

Thanks for comments.

Not for another few months. The improved debugger is in our source tree but only the next release will include the debugger.
