Description

The documentation is very out of date. The source code in 3.3.0 shows that in WWebWidget, 'addChild' is a protected member function, but it is not shown as an implemented function at all in the documentation, and public in WObject (http://www.webtoolkit.eu/wt/doc/reference/html/classWt_1_1WObject.html#a945f972be4331bfe46221263e04ae9ed).

For anyone developing a Wt application and expecting to be able to add widgets as children from outside that particular widget's tree, this could be rather disappointing, and lead to quite a bit of recoding of what they think is going to work.

Updating the documenation would be great.

Hey,

Actually there was also a related build warning with CLang that we fixed. addChild(WObject *) is indeed public API. Noone needs to be disappointed :-)
