wxMaxima is written is C++ and uses wxWidgets. The sources are in git repository hosted at Github.
Use Github issues page to submit bug reports or feature requests.
Current wxMaxima source code is available in git repositories at github. Clone the repository with
git clone https://github.com/wxMaxima-developers/wxmaxima

On some Linux systems the F1, Tab and Delete
keys will be suppressed until the package
ibus-gtk3 is installed.

Wolfgang Dautermann's site always contains a recent build of Maxima and wxMaxima. Additionally appveyor tries to create a wxMaxima-only installer immediately after wxMaxima's sourcecode has been changed. This build is only available if there was no code change in the last about 10 minutes and if the code actually compiled for windows. As this build is compiled using Microsoft Visual C++ it is considerably slower than Wolfgang's nightly build, though, which is made using the gnu toolchain.
.debfile and double-clicking on it should suffice on most systems. Alternatively the file can be installed from the console, on debian-based systems by typing:
sudo dpkg -i filename.deb
A nightly build of wxMaxima (without maxima) can be downloaded from www.peterpall.de/wxMaxima/nightly/wxMaxima.dmg
On Linux updating Maxima to the current git head should be
straightforward. On Windows you can either use the nightly build, which
is a ready-to-use installer (untested!) of the current development version of Maxima and wxMaxima (32 and 64 bit).
If you want to compile it by yourself, David Scherfgen posted the following procedure that allows to update the current Maxima installation to the git head on Windows, too, without having to install any traditional build tools.
C:\Maxima-Git. The repository's URL is:
(load "configure.lisp"), then
(configure), and finally
C:\Maxima-Git\srcdirectory by typing:
(load "maxima-build.lisp"), then
(maxima-compile), and finally
(load "maxima-build.lisp")again, then
C:\Maxima-Git\src. The Maxima command prompt should show up.
binsubdirectory of your latest "stable" Maxima version. For me, this is
C:\Program Files (x86)\Maxima-sbcl-18.104.22.168\bin.
sbcl.exe.bak. You need to do this because the supplied version of SBCL seems to be outdated, and that would result in troubles. By renaming the file, the SBCL version you earlier installed on your machine will be used instead.
C:\Maxima-Git\src\maxima.batto the current directory.
build_info();- pay attention to the timestamp field, which should reflect the date and time when you compiled Maxima earlier.
maxima.batfile and rename
