wxNVIZ in 6.4.2 is at the place where it was more or less a year and a half ago. It is sort of functional, but many things do not work. Anyone wanting to have a satisfying 3D imaging experience should use the TclTk version of NVIZ. I believe that wxNVIZ does not compile by default and IMHO, precompiled binaries probably should not compile it for wide distribution so that people don't get the wrong idea about its capabilities--which are extraordinarily good in GRASS 7. I'll probably stop compiling it soon.
I'm not sure about the wxdigitizer, but I *think* that it works pretty well. I wish I could compile the digitizer without wxNVIZ in 6.4.2. Anyone know how to do that?
