Wt & JWt 3.3.8 RC1, and Wt 4.0.0 RC1!

by Roel on Tuesday, July 4, 2017 @ 18:49

We’re simultaneously releasing a first release candidate for Wt and JWt 3.3.8, and we’re proud to announce the first Wt 4.0.0 release candidate!

Get Wt 4.0.0 RC1 here: wt-4.0.0-rc1.tar.gz

All changes between Wt 3.3.7 and 3.3.8 RC1 also apply to Wt 4.0.0 RC1. For changes specific to Wt 4, see the release notes.

Here are the main links for Wt 3.3.8 RC1:

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

Users of JWt need not worry. While there’s no JWt 4 yet, this does not mean we’re abandoning JWt. Most changes in Wt 4 are very specific to C++. We will work on updating our Wt to JWt porting toolchain after the release of Wt 4 so that JWt can stay in sync with Wt.

Announcing OpenID Connect support in Wt

by Roel on Tuesday, June 20, 2017 @ 13:06

You may have noticed that many companies, like Google and Facebook, allow you to identify yourself on other websites using their services, like the ubiquitous "Log in with Facebook" button. This means you can create web applications where users can easily log in with their Google or Facebook account.

Wt::Auth already included support for Google and Facebook log in, but we at Emweb are proud to announce that Wt::Auth was now extended with support for OpenID Connect. It is a simple identity layer on top of the well known OAuth 2.0 protocol. Now, instead of needing a slightly different implementation for every identity provider, there’s a standardized way of supporting many of them.

Wt & JWt 3.3.7 RC2

This release fixes several bugs and introduces some new features.

The Windows builds are currently built without WRasterImage support, because we’re having problems building Skia. The Visual Studio 2010 64-bit version is also excluded due to build problems.
