GWT 2.6 RC1 is here!

Posted by Bhaskar Janakiraman - Thursday, November 14, 2013 at 12:07:00 AM

Today we are excited to announce GWT 2.6 Release Candidate 1.  Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release.

For a quick run-down of changes since GWT 2.5.1, read the release notes.

A special request for testers: It would be very helpful if you could test your GWT application using GWT 2.6 on IE11 and report issues via the issue tracker. Even though IE11-specific support was not planned for GWT 2.6, we would like to get critical fixes into RC2.

GWT 2013 Survey

Posted by Bhaskar Janakiraman - Thursday, October 31, 2013 at 10:57:00 AM

Please help the GWT development community by filling in this year's GWT survey, conducted by Vaadin Ltd. This survey is similar to the GWT 2012 survey, whose results can now be downloaded directly from http://www.gwtproject.org/gwt_surveys.html. We value your opinions and comments, and use the information as valuable input to our planning process for future GWT releases. 

Vaadin plans to make the results of the survey freely available in February 2014. Before then, you can get a copy of the results at GWT.create conference and by email registration with Vaadlin.

GWT.create Conference

Posted by Bhaskar Janakiraman - Friday, October 18, 2013 at 9:30:00 AM

Vaadin is hosting the first GWT-only conference since 2007, with repeat events in both San Francisco and Frankfurt.  This promises to be the most exciting event for GWT developers in 2013.

The following is a guest blog post from Fredrik Rönnlund of Vaadin Ltd.


GWT.create Conference, December 12-13 & 17-19, 2013


GWT has for too long lacked its own dedicated conference - where we as GWT developers get to meet each other. Where both framework developers and users can get together and talk face to face on the next exciting things coming to GWT.


The GWT.create conference solves this in December 2013 and you're invited! GWT.create is a two day conference organised on two continents (at San Francisco, USA and Frankfurt, Germany) with over 60 speeches and two tracks full of interesting talks and workshops. There is no doubt this is the best thing to happen to GWT since GWT. ;)


This is the best way to jump on the bandwagon and hear the latest and greatest about GWT!

GWT News

Posted by Bhaskar Janakiraman - Monday, July 15, 2013 at 4:33:00 PM

In the past year, GWT has undergone dramatic changes - from a Google owned product to a fully open sourced project with community contributions, and strong support from member companies including Google. Lets take a look at what has been accomplished so far, and what the future holds.


New Domain and Web-site


http://www.gwtproject.org is the main web-site for GWT, and is the authoritative source for GWT documentation. The content for the web-site is now open sourced as well.


New Source Repository, Review System, Jenkins-based Automation for Commits



GWT source is now entirely in git. It uses the gerrit review system, and is hosted at https://gwt.googlesource.com.  Thanks to Redhat Inc., contributors rely on a Jenkins-based automated test system to validate their changes.


GWT Roadmap Published



We published the GWT roadmap for 2.6 and 3.0, presented at Google I/O, available online here.  The plan includes major initiatives, led by people from both Google and the GWT contributor community.


GWT Meetup 2013 Event



To encourage community contributions to GWT, we held a two-day GWT meet-up event at Google, May 12-13 for GWT contributors with in-depth presentations. Videos of the talks are available via the newly created GWT Youtube channel. Slides can be accessed from here.


Upcoming



Fall 2013, GWT2.6: GWT 2.6 will be released in Fall 2013, as announced at I/O - stay tuned for more detail.


Dec 12-13, 17-18: GWT.create Conference: Vaadin is hosting the first ever GWT conference, with repeat events in both San Francisco and Frankfurt.  This promises to be the most exciting event for GWT developers in 2013. Please read the Vaadin blog to see how you can be part of this event.


Spring 2014, GWT 3.0: GWT 3.0 will be released on or around Google I/O 2014, with major new features.
