wxWidgets Dialog Designer / News: Recent posts

Important notice

Dear user of wxDevC++:

We were informed about some unscrupulous people repackaging wxDevC++ and selling it as their own work under the ironic name of "Creative C++". If you happen to be interested in that software or a similar case we haven't heard of, or know someone who does, please be advised or help inform others that wxDevC++ is FREE software, and that the original authors deserve at least the recognition for their work. These unauthorized copies offer nothing over the real wxDevC++ distribution, and given the dishonest background of the people behind them you cannot trust that the repackage does not contain treats to the security of your machine or data.... read more

7.1 Fix release

If you prefer to use wxDevC++ IDE deactivating the wxdsgn RAD we'll recommend you to use this updated version, since we fixed a crash that occurred when switching the bottom tabs on the first run. Though, a weird behavior couldn't be addressed at this time (these tabs don't show their captions on the first run if the designer is not enabled), but after the second run it's OK.

We also fixed the wxWidgets projects paths if you enable the designer after using the IDE without it. So, nothing big, but recommended anyway.

Version 7.0 Released!

We are pleased to announce the release of wxDev-C++ version 7.0.

Version 7.0 is a substantial step forward from the already popular wxDev-C++ 6.10. Most notably, the IDE source has been rewritten using an API "plugin" system so that the user can run wxDev-C++ either with or without the visual designer.

Our primary focus in this release was to try to make a more stable IDE. With over a year of release clients, we hope we have succeeded. As always, if you have any problems, please make use of our bug tracker on Sourceforge.... read more
