Please, can you update wxGTK to version 2.8.4? It fixes a bug that affects my
I'm hesitant to do it for Fedora 7 at this point, because in my experience every
time I update wxGTK and wxPython (which go hand-in-hand) something new breaks.
Can you give me some more details (and put the blocked bug as a blocker of this
Upstream (codeblocks) discussion is at
Now with the bohdi tool we have updates-testing also for former Extras packages.
So it makes possible to prepare an updated package and put it into "testing"
even for a long time. I can then advise the reporters of the codeblocks' bug to
install 2.8.4 from "testing".
Thanks for your patience on this. I'll build for testing as soon as I get a chance.
Status update: busy at work + new build system = slower than I'd like to be on

the joys of a new build system.
This is now in updates-testing (and rawhide). Could people please test to verify
that the known problems are fixed and that new problems haven't appeared? Thanks!
