WxFixBoot 3.0.0 has been released!

This latest release of WxFixBoot brings many bugfixes, and performance improvements. WxFixBoot 3.0.0 has taken a long time to finish, but the results are really good. Here are some of the most notable changes:

  • Support for Python 3 and wxPython 4 – all of my programs now run on Python 3 🙂
  • Support for running the GUI as the normal user – better security and compatibility with Wayland.
  • New artwork from Bhuna (https://www.instagram.com/bhuna42/)
  • Using the new GetDevInfo module – better stability and a lot of bug fixes for disk detection.
  • Better detection of different Windows versions.
  • Various other smaller fixes and stability improvements.

While not the most important change from a technical standpoint, new artwork is always nice. Many thanks to Bhuna for making these for me.

This is a major new release, and because of all the improvements I recommend all users download and use this new version.

That’s it for now, but stay tuned for more posts coming soon 🙂

I'm currently studying for a Computing and IT degree with the Open University, and am a software developer as well. I enjoy coding in Python, C++ (still learning), and Java. Having written 4 open-source programs (hosted on launchpad.net), set up my own website, and started volunteering at Wimborne Model Town to work on their river control system, I still find the time to enjoy cycling, acting, photography, and playing bass guitar. I go climbing every now and then as well. As you may have guessed, I also enjoy blogging :)
