used within Kicad. In any case the source to those needs to be
I'm a bit hesitant to initiate a discussion over there being a noob
both to wxWidgets and KiCad.
It might very well come across as "hey, we've got some buggy software
over here, could you please keep wxWidgets bug-compatible with some
old version?", so I have to do some homework first I guess..
Also, before I talk to the wxWidgets guys I want KiCad to build
against any reasonable version of wxWidgets out of the box, in case
some helpful soul there decides to give it a spin. At the moment,
KiCAD doesn't build against the latest SVN version of wxWidgets. I
have an initial patch here to fix that, but since it touches 45
files, I have to test it a bit before committing.
Anyway, I'm going to be unable to do much the next few weeks (too
busy with work and travels), but I'll keep this in mind.
I can submit my wxWidgets-svn patch if anyone is interested in
testing and committing it and don't want to wait a few weeks for me
