wxhaskell 0.10.3rc1

In case you missed Jeremy's announcement, the first release candidate for wxhaskell 0.10.3 is now ready for download.

Highlights of 0.10.3 rc1 include:

  • Support for Unicode builds of wxWidgets
  • Support for wxWidgets 2.6.x (support for wxWidgets 2.4.2 retained if
    you compile from source)
  • Support for building with GHC 6.6.x and 6.8.x
  • Parts of wxHaskell are now built with Cabal
  • Profiling support
  • Smaller generated binary sizes (using --split-objs)

See Jeremy's message for a more complete list.

Note that we have postponed the goal of supporting wxWidgets 2.8. We are definitely making this a priority for wxhaskell 0.11. In the meantime, we will focus on making wxhaskell 0.10.3 easy for everyone to install. So please let us know if you run into any trouble. (Many thanks to Neil Mitchell and other users who have helped in testing)

Finally, users of MacOS X Leopard have reported difficulty building the older wxWidgets 2.6. According to the wxWidgets wiki page for more details), doing so is indeed possible, if you use the Tiger SDK. We would love to hear from you if you have succeeded in doing this.
