Not really. I'm using 2.5 because there is a bug in 2.4.0 which makes VLC 
hang when opening some of the dialogs on win32. It might have been fixed in 
2.4.1 though.
I'm also using 2.5 on linux because the 2.4.1 GTK version has also a couple 
of annoying bugs that have been fixed in 2.5.

As for the skins plugin. It doesn't exactly require wxWindows but it will 
make use of our wxWindows interface plugin (to display some dialogs) if 
this last one is available.

I would say the GTK2 version with unicode support (wxGTK). I'm using it on 
linux and it works quite well. You can also use the X11 version which is a 
bit more basic.
