wxWidgets is a cross-platform C++ GUI library, offering classes for all common GUI controls as well as a comprehensive set of helper classes for most common application tasks, ranging from networking to HTML display and image manipulation.
wxWidgets uses native widgets on all platforms whenever possible and fills missing gaps on some platforms using generic controls written with wxWidgets itself.
The 2.6.X series of wxWidgets will be the last to also support GTK 1.2.
What's New in This Release:
New AUI library supporting docking windows and much more.
New rich text control library implementing a generic wxRichTextCtrl, using only the wxWidgets API. Also includes formatting dialogs, conversion to HTML, and printing classes.
