wxPython has not been updated for nearly two years since the last stable release of 4.1.1. Therefore, when the wxPython development team announced the 4.2.0 update, the first sentence was to refute the rumor about “project death”:

“Rumors of my death are only slightly exaggerated”
“The rumours about my death are slightly exaggerated”
