GWT 1.1 Beta Released

August 12th, 2006 - Written by Chris Fong in News

As promised, the latest version of GWT has been released. You can download it from here.

Here are some of the new features (from the readme):

  • FileUpload widget
    The much-requested file upload widget
  • FormPanel widget
    Easily submit traditional HTML forms from GWT apps
  • RPC optimizations
    Client and server performance improvements and a more compact wire format
  • Automatic Resource Injection
    Modules can contain references to external JavaScript and CSS files, causing them to be automatically loaded when the module itself is loaded
  • Internationalization
    Easily localize strings and formatted messages
  • XML classes
    An XML library based on the W3C DOM
  • JSON classes
    JSON has moved into gwt-user.jar, and it’s much faster than the sample that shipped with 1.0.21
  • JUnit enhancements
    Unit tests are much, much faster than in 1.0.21, easier to configure, and you can now test asynchronous things like RPCs and timers
  • Javadoc
    Now included for your convenience, with sample code fragments
  • gwt-servlet.jar
    Although you should continue to build against gwt-user.jar as always, you only need to deploy gwt-servlet.jar with your webapps; it contains the subset of gwt-user.jar you’ll need to support RPC
