Right, but I've been using wx for several years and I can assure you
that the development branch is where you want to be.  It is no less
stable and tends to be far better functionality-wise.  The only possible
instability is in the API and frankly you'll only notice if you move
from 2.4 to to 2.5.

But not the wxPython people, which is what we care about here ;)
