wxPython 3 (Phoenix) will be the first version that supports Python 3. 
This will obviously mean that for the first time, wxPython will be able 
to take full advantage of the superb PEP393 Flexible String 
Representation (FSR) which is available in Python 3.3+.

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
