Re: Is Sword for Windows Dead?
My point wasn't that wxWindows uses non-native widgets, but that its widgets are generic. They're the most vanilla widgets available--those you're likely to find on every platform and the most basic versions of the widgets available on each platform. The concerns you note about lack of dynamic controls are more along the lines of what I meant (though I believe the things you note are all actually possible in wx).

I've been a long proponent of starting a wx version of Sword, largely for the benefit of non-Windows platforms. But now that MacSword is available and doing a better job on that platform than I think a wx version could, I'm less of a wx zealot. :)
