Gears 0.3 Released, and Google I/O videos on Ajax related content available

Category: Ajax, Gears, Google, GWT, JavaScript, Presentation

Some good stuff came out from my employer. First, we have the Gears 0.3 release which includes support for Firefox 3! I have been using it for awhile, and it has been great. The team wanted to get it out before the Firefox 3 launch (planned for June 17th). A plugin like Gears can get deep into browser internals, so it is a challenge to keep up to date as APIs change in beta releases, so it is great to be out there now and I we will take a close look at the final release!

As well as Firefox 3 support, Gears 0.3 includes:

Then, all of the videos from Google I/O sessions have been published.

I put together a playlist that includes Ajax and Gears related content:

Check out the great talks such as:



General Ajax

Wow, a lot of material there!

Just tried to install it and failed. When will a 64b Linux version be ready?

Ooof, can you just quickly remove the ability to create desktop shortcuts, before any software comes to depend on it? PLEASE?

Please, does it replace the JavaScript engine that’s in IE6?

Comment by Nosredna — June 12, 2008

By that, I mean (of course), does the WorkerPool still use IE6’s JScript? Or has a better JavaScript interpreter been added?
