Although I'm not an active user of wxWidgets I do know that the
maintenance of wxWidgets in Debian has always been a major hassle.
E.g. there still isn't a stable upstream release of wxWidgets that
supports GTK 3. There is supposed to be one beginning next year, but
apparently that has been said since almost three years.
And the current stable branch, 2.8, still uses obsolete libraries like
libgnomeprint and apparently wxWidgets upstream likes to introduce
disruptive changes within a stable branch.

So I hope, that we won't depend on wxWidgets as toolkit.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
