We're happy to announce our first release candidate for Google Web Toolkit 1.2, which has a number of highly requested features and bug fixes:
- Full support for OS X development
Develop with GWT on OS X as easily as on Linux and Windows
- Much faster hosted mode
Debug your GWT apps much more quickly. Hosted mode startup time has improved significantly -- and even better, refreshes are now lightning-fast -- even when your source code changes.
- New HTTP request module
- Widgets in TreeItems
Tree items can now contain arbitrary widgets -- finally, it's easy to create trees with checkboxes :-)
As I mentioned in my last post, we are launching this Release Candidate build of Version 1.2 so that we can get bug reports and feedback from GWT developers. We will follow up with the final 1.2 release in a few weeks once we have fixed all of the major issues in the Release Candidate. So keep those bug reports coming, and let us know if you have any issues with the release in the GWT Developer Forum.
