Wt & JWt 3.2.2, RC2
We uploaded a second release candidate for 3.2.2. Fortunately, we got more thumbs up than boo for the first release candidate. Not much has changed and this might be retagged as a final 3.2.2 release !
It’s good to have something out of the door so that focus can shift to 3.2.3 instead (see below).
Here are the main links:
For details on what changed in 3.2.2, please see here.
Of interest might be what we’re up to for 3.2.3: we are not planning on much vacation, so it seems.
We’re experimenting with generalizing the theme support, while integrating Twitter’s bootstrap theme. This should not only help those that are struggling to create or extend the existing Wt themes, but the Bootstrap theme has unique merits on its own: it is responsive (supporting mobile clients too), it can easily be customized to a color palette, and it has the promise to set a de facto standard for class styling and class names.
So it will be a welcome addition for Wt 3.2.3 !
In similar vain to Wt::Auth (OAuth 2), we are looking to integrate support for payment options in Wt 3.2.3.
We are porting over the self-contained Wt::Render package to JWt 3.2.3, which together with a new PDF backend for WPaintDevice, will allow efficient and accurate rendering of XHTML to PDF (or other paint devices).
