  • Priority changed from normal to low
  • Status changed from new to infoneeded_new

I'm afraid this is going to break plenty of existing code using int to store the orientation value. I don't know how common is this but I do remember seeing it before and Google code search finds several matches in the first couple of pages and wx does it itself with its wxPrintData::m_printOrientation. Besides, you really didn't have any choice if you wanted to store it before as there was no enum type to use for it.

So I don't think this can be applied as is because of compatibility concerns. We definitely can introduce the enum type and change the accessor to return it. If we could also keep the method taking int and just deprecate it, it would probably be fine too (but I'm not sure if deprecating an overloaded method is going to work correctly). Could you please test if this is going to work and update the patch accordingly (please also update the deprecation section of docs/changes.txt)?

  • Status changed from infoneeded_new to new

changes.txt updated now, and the old overload is back and deprecated; it seems to compile okay.
