wxStaticBox bug


I just tracked down a bug in OSX where tabbing doesn’t work within a wxStaticBox.  The bug was in include/wx/osx/statbox.h, which failed to inherit from wxStaticBoxBase.

I checked on master, and that bug was fixed by vadz two years ago:
https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/blame/master/include/wx/osx/statbox.h <https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/blame/master/include/wx/osx/statbox.h>

I’m on 3.0.3, which is far more recent that that.  Fearing I had somehow bungled my git clone, I double-checked the WX_3_0_3_BRANCH only to discover that statbox.h’s commit history there stops at July 26, 2013:
https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/commits/WX_3_0_3_BRANCH/include/wx/osx/statbox.h <https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/commits/WX_3_0_3_BRANCH/include/wx/osx/statbox.h>

Digging deeper, I see that the commit has a 3.1.0 tag, which I assume is the release it is planned for?
https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/commit/e9b379fe2abb579fc1c334cc3e642e66c0a5d158 <https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/commit/e9b379fe2abb579fc1c334cc3e642e66c0a5d158>

Why is it not in earlier releases, since it’s a relatively old fix?
