I’m happy to announce that new versions of wxRuby and wxSugar are now
available. wxRuby is a comprehensive GUI toolkit for desktop
applications which uses native widgets on Windows, Linux/GTK and OS X.
wxSugar is a testing ground for syntax improvements to wxRuby.
== INSTALLATION ==
gem install wxruby
NOTE: if you’re using wxSugar in existing code, please upgrade to the
latest version at the same time as installing wxRuby 1.9.1 (gem install
NOTE: We currently have binary builds for Linux (Intel) Windows (Intel)
and OS X (Intel and PPC) We hope to have Linux (AMD64) added shortly.
== CHANGES ==
- Merged nice ruby-style syntax options into core wxRuby
- Support for StyledTextCtrl (Scintilla) advanced text-editing control
- Added BitmapComboBox and RendererNative classes
- Fixed nasty bug which could cause instability in XML-loaded layouts
- Numerous other fixes and new methods in existing classes
- Figured out how to build on AMD-64 Linux
- Upgraded binary builds to be based on latest wxWidgets 2.8.5
- New and updated samples and docs
A full ChangeLog is included with the download. For fuller info on the
new syntax, see http://wxruby.rubyforge.org/doc/wxruby_intro.html .
== KNOWN ISSUES ==
== NEXT STEPS ==
For 1.9.2, we’re considering adding some additional syntax options from
wxSugar, then freezing the API. With some luck and few fixes, 1.9.2
might be a 2.0 release candidate.
== CREDITS ==
As ever, this version’s only possible thanks to collaboration from the
core dev team and other participants. Particular thanks to: Sean L.
for ongoing support and providing many binary builds; Glenn Davy for
working through the AMD 64 build process; Roy S., who did the
original work on wxScintilla; and to all those who filed bugs, answered
queries and took part in surveys & discussions on the mailing lists.
