well, and that's for a simple reason Wayne has already written.

wxwidgets 3.0.x is the current version series marked as stable with no
API changes between releases.

And 3.1.x is the current development version of wxwidgets *with*
possible internal and external API modifications that make it hard for
distros to keep all depending packages in sync, it nearly impossible. So
no version 3.1.x is packaged in Debian at least for that reason. Not
even in experimental.

Once the API is set to frozen a new stable series of wxwidgets 3.2.x
will get released. Given the progress the wxwidgets development is
taking nobody can say a targeted date for a new stable release of wxwidgets.
