Alternatively, you could retrieve the code from SVN. Either way, if it turns out you need to patch the source code in order to create packages for your favourite Linux distribution, we 'd be interested to know about the needed changes so we can include them in our next release.

For Windows, we also provide the pre-compiled wxWidgets, version 2.8.12 used to compile the release. You can download and extract it either from BerliOS or SourceForge. When opening a Code::Blocks project file it will usually ask you to define the root of the global compiler variable named "wx" which you simply point to the extracted folder from that archive.

Note that wxWidgets comes compiled in a shared,monolithic,release,unicode flavour, compiled like that:

mingw32-make -f makefile.gcc SHARED=1 MONOLITHIC=1 BUILD=release UNICODE=1 VENDOR=cb


Build system

Code::Blocks implements a custom build system with very important features: ultra-fast dependencies generation, build queues and parallel builds are the most important ones to mention.


The debugging subsystem has been greatly enhanced in the latest version. Automatic/manual watches, code/data breakpoints, call stack, disassembly listing and memory dumps are only few of its features.
