The GWT team has announced the first release candidate for Google Web Toolkit 1.2 with Mac OS X support. As stated in the GWT blog, GWT 1.2 RC1 has a number of highly requested features and bug fixes:
- Full support for OS X development
Develop with GWT on OS X as easily as on Linux and Windows
- Much faster hosted mode
Debug your GWT apps much more quickly. Hosted mode startup time has improved significantly -- and even better, refreshes are now lightning-fast -- even when your source code changes.
- New HTTP request module
- Widgets in TreeItems
Tree items can now contain arbitrary widgets -- finally, it's easy to create trees with checkboxes :-)
