Subject Apache Wicket 1.3.0-beta4 released!
Date Thu, 11 Oct 2007 19:50:19 GMT
This is the fourth beta for Apache Wicket we have prepared for your
pleasure. It contains over 120 fixes to issues with previous releases and
todo items we have cleared.

In this announcement:

* Apache Wicket
* This release
** Portlet support
* Migrating from 1.2
* Downloading the release
* Validating the release
* Reporting bugs

Eager people click here to download the distribution, others can read


We thank you for your patience and support. Given the current list of
remaining issues and the fact that we have just accepted portlet support
back in, we think a fifth beta release is necessary. But that is no excuse
for not giving this fourth installment a test drive!

The Wicket Team

-= Apache Wicket =-

Apache Wicket is a component oriented Java web application framework
currently undergoing incubation at the Apache Software foundation. With
proper mark-up/logic separation, a POJO data model, and a refreshing lack of
XML, Apache Wicket makes developing web-apps simple and enjoyable again.
Swap the boilerplate, complex debugging and brittle code for powerful,
reusable components written with plain Java and HTML.

Our migration to a top level project is now completed and you can find our
website and documentation here:


-= This release =-

This release is the fourth in a series of beta releases until we feel
confident to finalize Wicket 1.3. This is called a beta because we don't
have fixed all bugs, and probably haven't found them all either.

-- Portlet support --

A new feature in this beta4 release is the merge of Ate Douma's portlet
branch into trunk. This reintroduces portlet support in Wicket.


-= Migrating from 1.2 =-

If you are coming from Wicket 1.2, you really want to read our migration
guide, found on the wiki:


-= Downloading the release =-

You can download the release from the official Apache mirror system, and you
can find it through the following link:


For the Maven and Ivy fans out there: update your pom's to the following,
and everything will be downloaded automatically:


Substitute the artifact ID with the projects of your liking to get the other

Please note that we don't prescribe a Logging implementation for SLF4J. You
need to specify yourself which one you prefer. Read more about SLF4J here:

-= Validating the release =-

The release has been signed by Frank Bille, your release manager for today.
The public key can be found in the KEYS file in the download area. Download
the KEYS file only from the Apache website.


Instructions on how to validate the release can be found here:


-= Reporting bugs =-

In case you do encounter a bug, we would appreciate a report in our JIRA:


-= The distribution =-

In the distribution you will find a README. The README contains instructions
on how to build from source yourself and a list of all things that have been
fixed, added and/or removed since the first beta release.
