Re: wxString and thread safety


Fixing the wildcard extensions is on my short list.  Since I created the
mess, I will fix it.  Hopefully I can free up some time this weekend
although I may be going out of town so it may have to wait until the
following weekend.  I've got a few 5.0.1 bugs that I'm taking a look at now.
