GWT 1.3 Released

Category: Framework, GWT, JavaScript

The first open source release of the Google Web Toolkit has been announced.

Version 1.3 is the first to be released with the new open process:

Our open source charter, “Making GWT Better,” explained that GWT development would take place in the open, and that we’d even publish our engineering meeting notes. We’re happy to report that it’s working out really well. We’ve had many fruitful discussions on the contributors forum, and we’ve already received and accepted some patches that will make it into the next version of GWT.

As part of the open process you can dip into the development plan for 1.4 which includes items such as:

  • New widgets: RichText, CollapsiblePanel, DateFormatter, ColorPicker, and more.
  • Development: True JS output, new Java classes, line precise reporting, and more.
  • Performance: simple inlining, dead code elimination, optimized bootstrap, and more.
  • Fixes: IE issues, Linux issues, and more.

Sounds like good stuff.

I still don’t think I’ll be satisfied that you’re being “open” enough unless you provide links to live 24/7 webcams where we can watch your developers work on gwt. You could call it “Extreme OSS”. ;)

I just noticed in AJAX Magazine (http://ajax.phpmagazine.net/) that Morfik has also announced release of 0.9 of their AJAX IDE which if remember correctly was in the same space as GWT. It will be interesting to see who wins this out. Goliath or David :-)

I can’t agree that GWT is an IDE – I use GWT with Eclipse, which speaks enough.

About the “openness” – who cares whether it’s open, if it works fine? Odd..
