I don't have a strong opinion on which version of wx should be
supported by wxHaskell, as long as there is at least one that works on
Windows without the need to compile wxWidgets from source. Until there
is a wxPack available for 2.9 I fear that the majority of Windows
users will be stuck with wxHaskell versions that work with 2.8.

That aside, focusing on supporting a single version of wxWidgets
sounds like a reasonable thing to do.

 I don't think we have ever seen a case of an irresponsible committer (could
 such a thing even exist in the Haskell community?), so I'm in favour.


 Given that there aren't going to be any more 2.8.x releases of
 wxWidgets, I'm happy to say:
 If you want a stable(ish) wxHaskell, then use the current hackage
 release along with the last stable wxWidgets release (2.8.12).
 If you want bleeding edge wxHaskell, then pull from code.haskell.org
 along with the latest dev wxWidgets release (currently 2.9.2).

 I should note one more time that I'm quite happy to stop supporting
 pre 2.9.x support now, I don't know if anyone has any objection to
 this?

 The caveat is that I would like to do one more release on Hackage
 supportingĀ  2.8.x, as we have a number of valuable bugfixes in the devel
 branches which would benefit users of 2.8.x. I will try to do this over then
 next two weeks, so my proposal is...

 Patches committed until the end of 2011 should be verified on a wxWidgets
 2.8.x release. From 1st Jan 2012, 2.8.x is dropped, and we'll bump the
 version number from 0.13.x to 0.14.x.

 How does this sound?

 Well it's the most sensible new year's resolution I've heard thus far :)

 I shall continue pushing to my = wx-2.9 repo on darcs den, in to
 which I'm aiming to get all the patches which are sent out on the
 mailing list as well.

 Dave,


 Jeremy

Well, you can always bundle the wx libraries with your application in that
case and create your own wxPack. :-)
