The verdict on updated versions of Dev-C++

Posted by jbadams, 27 July 2012 - - - - - - · 952 views

As promised in my last entry, I've posted a follow-up looking at the viability of the two updated versions of Dev-C++: wxDev-C++ and Orwell Dev-C++. Although I still wouldn't personally recommend it, wxDev-C++ comes up alright -- check the entry for details.

Just a quick update this time:- I've updated my popular 2008 blog post on "Why you shouldn't use Dev-C++", and also moved to a new url -- the old one has a re-direct page for now, but I probably won't host that for ever.
