New release with wxWidgets 3.1.5

My project bundles wxPython Phoenix inside our application, and so for Windows and macOS we are tied to the wxWidgets version used by wxPython for our main app as well. This is leading to some issues now on macOS 11 machines, since there have been quite a few changes in 3.1.5 fixing font handling that are needed for proper functioning (and we have a user seeing routine crashes now because of fonts). We think all these are fixed by 3.1.5.

Are there any plans to release a new wxPython version with 3.1.5 as the base?

Thanks for your hard work on this!

I’ve noticed that the last commits in https://github.com/wxWidgets/Phoenix were made back on Jan 29, 2021.

Is there any development being done for a new release of wxPython?

I notice the update-wx branch has integrated wxwidgets 3.1.5 for wxPython 4.1.2.

But alas there is no wxPython 4.1.2 release yet.

Is there much planned for 4.1.2 before it is eventually released ?

Yes, Robin has been extremely busy lately, but he hopes to get back to wxPython again soon.
