This page is for tracking transitioning packages from wxwidgets2.8 to wxwidgets3.0 and wxpython3.0. Other useful tools:

Jessie released with wxWidgets 3.0.2 and wxPython 3.0.1.1 (wxPython 3.0.2.0 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 a removal bug has been filed requesting removal from unstable.

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.

Some important notes:

Popcon graph showing installs of the wx3.0 runtime library and wxpython 3.0 packages:

Popcon graph showing installations of wx C++ and Python runtimes for wx 2.6, 2.8 and 3.0:
