Errai: The browser as a platform

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Hello, 1.1 Milestone 1!

Today, we’re pleased to announce our first step towards version 1.1, which sets us solidly on a course with 1.1 destiny.

This milestone release is a big step towards honing the concepts that we introduced in 1.0, driving someone them towards their logical conclusions, and smoothing out the rough edges. Community feedback was important to us, and we’ve worked diligently to respond to it.

This release brings a range of new features, including (but not limited to):

* Support for more servlet containers.
* New Async Task API
* A new bus monitor to make troubleshooting easier
* A new RPC API, that leverages the bus architecture, and provides an alternative to GWT-RPC.
* Better error handling.
* Better documentation.
* Bug fixes galore!

We think you should take a look. And we hope you have as much fun using it as we did building it.

Remember, Errai is always looking for community contributions. So if you’re interested in becoming a contributor, drop us a line. Download it before it gets cold.

  1. I love it. One really big improvement would be adding the ServletContext to your SessionContext. Other then that you guys have a great project going. Its great to have Ajax/Coment/RPC all under one roof.
