Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, wxWidgets is a C++ library that helps the users create software for Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, providing bindings for Python, Perl and Ruby. By using the platform’s native API, it does not need to emulate the GUI, giving the applications a native look and feel.

The latest version available is wxWidgets 3.0.2, which has been released a while ago, being backported from Debian Unstable to Ubuntu Trusty.
