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.

You can download this release from here.

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.

NICE!

Tried Super Dev Mode in conjunction with servlet run by GPE-jetty. Works like a charm. This is the future of GWT development. Compiler is also working at awesome speeds.

Regarding the code splitting, can someone provide extra information, details, code examples for those points ? For example: What does "passing the same class" actually mean ? What was the behavior in 2.5 and how it's in 2.6 ? Or: Does runAsync run code asynchronously even in DevMode ?

The Better places framework for GWT is a framework and sample app for developing Google GWT based rich client applications with menu navigation and history management. It provides the structure for an MVP framework extending the basic GWT Place framework.
We provide more functionality than that is available in the basic HelloMVP type application or even the Slotted-Place framework.
The framework provides a mechanism for configuring menu structure and the basic navigation from a configuration file.
A common class for place is provided, each instance is different only in the values in member variables. Also provided are Common Presenter, tokenizer etc.
Only the Activity sub classes, and Views need to be coded.
A live demo can be seen at: http://1-dot-cloud4gl.appspot.com/
The source is available under LGPL from : https://github.com/georon/better-place4gwt
Stay tuned for the design documents and tutorials.

Have you guys given up on updating the site? 2.6 final is out after several RCs and still nothing about it anywhere. Nothing in release notes, no blog post, nada. It makes the community wonder if the project is fading.
