Re: wxwidgets 2.8, anyone?

Hey Daniel,

I don't want to distract you from your research too much, but perhaps
there is something you can clarify for the rest of us that are trying
to assess all this too ...

You opened all this by saying:

But it's been brought to my attention that the latest version
of poedit advertised here: http://www.poedit.net/

Actually works perfectly well with wx2.6, which the upstream
author told you here:

And you only apparently keep that bug open because some proposed
future version _may_ require 2.8.

If all this is a genuine reflection of the current state of affairs,
then please do close the fixed bug report, that isn't blocked by any
wx bugs at all, nor has it ever been, to avoid actually confusing
people more.

Then if you and the poedit upstream (who also has direct commit
access to the wx upstream repo), really do come up with some new
killer feature in some future release, we can weigh that honestly
against what we are really missing without 2.8 at present.

There are some people with genuine needs, and a lot still backporting
really important fixes to their 2.6 releases.  If I have to sort
the real claims from the astroturf, this isn't going to get done
_faster_ than if we put some Good Data into the calculation to
begin with.

Thanks in advance,
