wxShapeFramework for wxWidgets 2.9.x

Due to custom DC classes used by wxSF the current trunk version is not compatible with wxWidgets 2.9.x and higher which provides completely redesigned structure of backend DC classes. Fortunately I've managed re-write this critical code in wxSF so the library now works with wxWidgets 2.9.x as well. Note that some features are as stable and usable as functionality provided by wxWidgets is. Also note that this library branch is suitable only for wxWidgets 2.9.x and may be unstable and buggy on some platforms. You can download the code from SVN branch using this svn command: svn co https://wxsf.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/wxsf/branches/wx2.9/trunk wxSF-2.9

wxSF 1.3 beta will be released soon!

Hi,
it's a quite long time from my last release so I'd like to give you some news about the project's progress.

I'm just finishing a new, completely rebuild, library's release. It is build over my new persistent XML list/tree-base serializable data container (called wxXmlSerializer) which brings more power and flexibility to all library's functionality. The new wxSF release also supports user-defined serialized data assigned to the shapes, allows creation of so called 'composite shapes' and is well tested both on the Windows and Linux target platforms.... read more

wxSF 1.2.2 released

This is a bug release where following problems have been solved:

wxSF 1.2 released

wxShapeFramework v1.2.0 alpha has been released today. This release contains several new features and API functions and the main change (improvement, I hope :)) is that data and presentation layers have been separated. From now, the diagram items (shapes) are managed by wxSFDiagramManager class which is suitable for data serialization and examining of the digram structure, and the presentation layer allowing displaying and in-place modifying of diagram structure is provided by old wxSFShapeCanvas class. This approach is useful for cases when the diagram should be serialized or changed even if it is not displayed (shape canvas is no created yet).
