Switched to wxwidgets 3, note that some people are experiencing some focus glitches with the bar, so ymmv.

Experienced font rendering issues using OpenCPN compiled against wxgtk-2.8 on my system. Those went away with a build against wxgtk (3.0.2-4 at the time) while opencpn appears to run fine using wxgtk version 3.0.

Any objections against updating the PKGBUILD to use the latest wxgtk instead?

Good news
OpenCPN 4.0.0, was published on January the 8th 2015 and can be downloaded from

No, you are misunderstanding what the flag is for.

It is basicly the same as the out of date flag on official packages. Only click it when the package is actually out of date (upstream released a new version). Build errors should be reported as a comment instead.

The PKGBUILD is obviously out of date when it is not able to build the binary package anymore.

Stop flagging out of date when it is not out of date. It is not a "poke maintainer" or "broken package" flag.

Doesn't build anymore since wxgtk has been bumped to 3.0.0.
Adding "-DwxWidgets_CONFIG_EXECUTABLE='/usr/bin/wx-config-2.8' -DwxWidgets_wxrc_EXECUTABLE='/usr/bin/wxrc-2.8" to the cmake line solves the issue. Also switch the dependency from wxgtk to wxgtk2.8

1. Don't flag out of date when the package is not out of date.
2. The source url is fine, if you are having trouble with sourceforge, you can change to a different mirror by logging in on their page and setting your favourite mirror.

Had to change source to
Everything else worked after that.
