This page was for tracking transitioning packages from wxwidgets2.8 to wxwidgets3.0 and wxpython3.0. The transition is now complete, but the summary information has been left in case it is still of interest.

Transition bugs:

Jessie released with wxWidgets 3.0.2 and wxPython (wxPython was too late for the freeze).

There's a backported version on wxWidgets 3.0.x in wheezy-backports, and a backport of wxPython 3.0.x is planned).

The wxwidgets2.8 packages did not release with jessie, and were removed from unstable in January 2016.

For C++ packages, the package you probably want to build-depend on is libwxgtk3.0-dev (or if you only use the 'wxbase' library, libwxbase3.0-dev). There's no need to also build-depend on wx3.0-headers or wx-common, and there's no need to build-depend on both libwxgtk3.0-dev and libwxbase3.0-dev.
