Early this year marks wxWindows 10th birthday, and to mark this event codingstyle.com has an exclusive interview with several key developers of the project. About The Author Eugenia Loli Ex-programmer, ex-editor in chief at OSNews.com, now a visual artist/filmmaker.

The only problem is that currently most developers prefer to staticaly link their apps to the wxWindows library and so binary compartability between the different library versions is not a priority. And achieving such compartability for a C++ framework that is being rapidly developed is not easy. I remember there was an interview with the AtheOS developer that had some insights on this problem.
