I managed to get wxPerl 0.65 to build against the new wxWidgets 2.8.0.
I used the Ubuntu wxWidgets binaries for 2.8.0
(http://www.wxwidgets.org/downloads/), but had a few problems with
mike@mbs:~/downloads/Alien-wxWidgets-0.25$ perl Build
'animate' library not found at inc/My/Build/Any_wx_config.pm line 141.
'deprecated' library not found at inc/My/Build/Any_wx_config.pm line 141.
So I added this line to inc/My/Build/Any_wx_config.pm:
next if $k =~ m/^animate|deprecated$/;
just to see if things would build, etc. After that everything worked
fine. Not the most elegant fix :-/ but hopefully gives a clue to
those who are in the know...
BTW, I now have an Ubuntu binary Wx-0.65 against wxWidgets 2.8.0
(wxperl_0.65-1_i386.deb) if anyone wants it, just let me know...
