We thank you for your patience and support.

The Wicket Team

=== Apache Wicket ===

Apache Wicket is a component oriented Java web application framework.
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.

You can find out more about Apache Wicket on our website:

http://wicket.apache.org

=== This release ===

The Apache Wicket team is proud to announce the availability of the
first milestone release of our first java 1.5 Wicket version: Apache
Wicket 1.4-m1. This is the first release with java 1.5 as a minimum.
Not everything has been converted to java 1.5 yet but we are getting
there.

=== Migrating from 1.3 ===

If you are coming from Wicket 1.3, you really want to read our
migration guide, found on the wiki:

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

following, and everything will be downloaded automatically:
