HI all,

This went out over the wxPython list, but I thought I'd post it here as 
generally, the Mac gets the least testing. Also, given that it looks 
like Apple is going to put 2.8 in their next release, and they don't 
have a history of updating things like that, it's all the more important 
to get as much testing as possible on the Mac.

Hi all,

Robin made an announcement about the upcoming release of wxWidgets
2.8 next week on wxpython-dev, but I thought that 2.8 Release
Candidate (RC) testing merited an extra call for help on wxPython-
users as well.

So, if you're good at making programs crash, implode, or otherwise
freak out, we need your help! :-) We're on the last stretch for 2.8,
and particularly as it is going to be included in the default install
of OS X 10.5, Leopard, we'd like it to be as solid and slick as
possible. So if you have apps, frameworks, scripts, or one-liners
written using wx, we would appreciate any time you could spend
testing them with the 2.8 RC. Even if it's just 15 minutes, or with
one script, or testing the demo... every little bit helps. We
probably won't get to everything reported before the release, but
it's better to find all the issues we can, so we can at least
prioritize and fix the really nasty ones.

Oh, and if you don't mind fixing bugs too, well, I promise we won't
complain! :-)

The wxPython 2.8 RC can be found here:
