wxWidgets Change Log
Note: This file contains the list of changes since wxWidgets 3.x, please see
docs/changes_30.txt for the changes in the previous versions.
Changes in behaviour not resulting in compilation errors
- wxRibbonButtonBar::DeleteButton() now deletes and not just removes the button.
- Default interpolation mode in wxGDIPlusContext under MSW is now
consistency with OS X, call SetInterpolationQuality() explicitly if needed.
- Calling wxYield() in wxMSW now generates wxEVT_IDLE events, just as in the
other ports, but this can be unexpected for the applications not expecting
their idle handlers to be called from inside wxYield().
- Creating wxBitmap with 0 width or height now always fails in all ports
(it used to succeed in wxMSW).
- Using invalid flags with wxBoxSizer or wxGridSizer items now triggers asserts
when done from the code or error messages when done in XRC.
- wxWS_EX_VALIDATE_RECURSIVELY is now the default behaviour, i.e. calling
Validate() or TransferData{From,To}Window() will now also call the same
function for all children.
- wxOSX/Carbon port doesn't exist any more, wxOSX/Cocoa will be silently used
instead even if configure --with-osx_carbon option is used.
- The pure virtual function wxAppTrait::GetToolkitVersion() now has a parameter
for getting the micro version. If you override GetToolkitVersion() you need
to add this new third parameter.
- wxWindow::CreateAccessible() doesn't return accessible object by default
anymore and GetOrCreateAccessible() may return NULL, indicating that native
system-provided accessibility should be used.
Changes in behaviour which may result in build errors
- "webview" library is not included in `wx-config --libs` output any more, you
need to request it explicitly, e.g. `wx-config --libs std,webview`.
- wxMSW now requires linking with shlwapi.lib and version.lib. This is done
automatically in most cases, but if you use a static build of the library
with a non-MSVC compiler such as MinGW and do not use wx-config, then you
will need to add these libraries to your make or project files yourself.
- WXWIN_OS_DESCRIPTION doesn't exist any longer, use wxGetOsDescription().
3.1.1: (not released yet)
- wxListCtrl::HasCheckboxes() and EnableCheckboxes(), which were added in
3.1.0, have been renamed to HasCheckBoxes and EnableCheckBoxes respectively
for consistency with wxCheckBox naming.
- Add wxSecretStore for storing passwords using the OS-provided facilities.
- Add support for compiling application code with wxNO_UNSAFE_WXSTRING_CONV.
- Add support for the micro version (third component) to OS and toolkit version
functions. See wxGetOsVersion(), wxPlatformInfo, and wxAppTraits.

wxLog::SetVerbose() which now only affects wxLogVerbose().
