Is wxD dead? I read an earlier thread that says that "As of 2013, 
the library is probably best considered discontinued ?" It would 
be a pity, although I completely understand that it is hard to 
keep such a project up.

Maybe teaming up with wxPython would be an idea? I know that they use SWIG to generate their Python 2 bindings, how it's done with the "new" Project Phoenix, I am not sure, but I think it is still SWIG.

wxPython is effectively dead since it is Python 2 only. However there is Pheonix which is a Python 3 binding to wxWidgets. Sadly it's not yet in Debian so I haven't tried it.

Well you're misinformed here, wxPython 2, is still developed, development never stopped and Phoenix exists for a long time now.

I believe he meant wxPython 2.x for Python 3.

Ah I see. Phoenix is basically wxPython, only just from ground up with a more pythonic API and with Python 3 support, gotta ask the dev if he used SWIG and if he did, if we can borrow his sources
