Anders, thanks for the reality check. My sincerest apologies if that
looked at all like FUD - I've used WxWindows before, so I'm actually
quite happy that you took the time to bring it over to D.
I looked into wxWindows a very long time ago, and was convinced that it
was strictly LGPL licensed. I now understand that it has an exception
that makes the license non-viral enough for static linking to a
proprietary or even a project under a completely different license*.
The verbiage on the wxd site clears this up considerably (thanks).
That is, unless I'm completely mistaken? :)
(* IMO, this could be clearer in the license text with some qualifying
statements in the "WxWindows License", but I have been known to be
rather dense when it comes to legalese.)
