The long wait is over: Wt 4 has been released!

Download the source (wt-4.0.0.tar.gz) here and read its release notes for more information about what Wt 4 brings.

Wt 4 is Wt’s big update to C++11 and a more modern C++ style along with it.

You may have also noticed that the website is looking a bit different. It was about time that the website got a refresh, so we made a new one to coincide with the Wt 4 launch. We hope you like it!

Wt 4.0.0 RC 3

We uploaded a third (and likely final) release candidate for Wt 4.0.0.

Here are the main links:

Apart from some bugfixes, here are things we’ve changed since the last release candidate and the Wt 3.3.8 release:

  • We added Microsoft SQL Server support for Wt::Dbo

  • We made it possible to listen on multiple interfaces and ports when using the wthttp connector.

  • The now deprecated extensionless headers (e.g. Wt/WWidget) now include the header with extension (e.g. Wt/WWidget.h). A warning is generated when the extensionless header is included. You can also turn off the INSTALL_EXTENSIONLESS_HEADERS CMake option, so that they’re not installed.


Wt & JWt 3.3.8

We uploaded a final Wt and JWt 3.3.8!

Here are the main links:

This release fixes several bugs, and introduces a few small features, like OpenID Connect support.

There’s no Wt 4.0.0 RC3 yet, since few things have changed between the last RC to warrant a release yet. We’ll work on merging some new features now (like SQL Server support in Wt::Dbo) and refocus on getting Wt 4 ready for release.


Wt 4 at CppCon 2017!

We are excited to announce that I, Roel, will be speaking about Wt 4 at CppCon 2017. My talk, titled "Migrating a C++03 library to C++11 case study: Wt 4" will discuss how we made the transition from Wt 3 to Wt 4 possible.

We just released release candidate 2 of Wt 4, and we plan to get the final Wt 4 release out before the end of summer. We encourage everyone to check out the release candidate and provide feedback. This will be very helpful in preparation of this talk.

I’ll hopefully see you then!
