wxWidgets, balloons and other queries

Post by Johnny2Bad » Tue Aug 16, 2011 2:39 pm

Hi,
I'm wondering a couple of things.

When and if there is going to be a wxWidgets 3.*? Is there anyway to contribute money to the wxWidgets project? How can I make suggestions for the later revision?

In particular I am looking for Balloons, not as a tooltip but rather as a modeless dialog. And cross platform too, not just M$ windowz.

Thanking you in advance,
Jonathan.

Probably end of this/beginning next year.

There is "donate" button on the wxWidgets homepage.

Or you could announce a bounty for a function you'd like implemented (page looks kind of outdated though):

Best way is probably through the mailing list, the core developers can be reached there:

There is a recent discussion about this here:

Use the source, Luke!
