I have a Pi 3 running Raspbian Buster fully up to date. I also have 
Gambas 3.12.2 (with Synaptic showing it as latest stable version) 
installed as binary (i.e. without compiling). My Software Sources 
(though Software & Updates invoking from menus now displays nothing 
after a few seconds, though it used to work) are:
pi at RaspberryPi:~ $ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ buster main contrib 
non-free rpi
# Uncomment line below then 'apt-get update' to enable 'apt-get source'
#deb-src http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ buster main contrib 
non-free rpi

Gambas Wiki (http://gambaswiki.org/wiki/install/raspbian) says nothing 
about Buster.

When I start Gambas from the menu it 'overflows' the available screen 
area (I usually do work on my Pi using VNC Viewer from my Ubuntu Xenial 
box to VNC Server on my Pi). Not able to attach screenshot as too large 
for list's posts. It did not used to do this: I guess that there must 
have been a Buster update which messed it up.
