The GWT team is happy to announce the availability of Google Web Toolkit 1.6 Milestone 2! Binary distributions are available for download directly from the GWT Google Code project.


If you have already tried GWT 1.6 Milestone 1, you may not notice much difference in Milestone 2. Changes have mostly been general polish and various small bug fixes. For the nitty-gritty details of the changes since the previous milestone, see the attached source control commit logs. You can also watch the GWT bug tracker for the most up-to-date list of resolved issues (http://code.google.com/p/google-web-toolkit/issues/list?can=1&q=status:Fixed,FixedNotReleased%20milestone:1_6_RC&num=1000). As for doc, the javadoc that comes bundled with the distribution should be up-to-date, but the online Developer Guide (http://code.google.com/docreader/#p=google-web-toolkit-doc-1-6) is still being tweaked.

We anticipate that GWT 1.6 M2 will be the last milestone build for this version. After a few more bugs fixes and a bit more doc, we expect it to be followed soon by a release candidate build. In the meanwhile, please report bugs to the GWT issue tracker (http://code.google.com/p/google-web-toolkit/issues/list) after doing a quick search to see if your issue has already been reported. If you encounter a bug in 1.6 M2 that you think qualifies as a showstopper, we would greatly appreciate it if you'd also reply on this thread to alert the engineering team.

As always, remember that GWT milestone builds like this are use-at-your-own-risk. Don't be surprised if it takes a bit of trial and error to get everything to work, and we don't recommend it for production use quite yet.

I'm getting a segfault (Leopard, java 1.5 (-d32)) trying to run the
HostedMode class. Any hints?

Robert, did you get this crash with Milestone 1?  If you didn't run Milestone 1, would you mind trying it out?

I ran M1 and didn't get it, but at the time, I was still running
GWTShell and dealing with the deprecated warning.

Below is my launch script (if someone sees something glaringly wrong I
have missed)

And I have tried it with both -d32 and -d64 on Leopard.

I notice running the Hosted mode server with wrong parameters output a help message with :

-server        Prevents the embedded Tomcat server from running, even if a port is specified

But Tomcat is supposed to have been replaced by Jetty, isn't it :D

That looks fine to me, although that -Dcatalina.base shouldn't matter anymore.  Can you send me a VM crash log?

Huh, that should have been fixed in M2.  It should now say "Specify the TCP port for the embedded web server (defaults to 8888)".  Are you sure that's still an issue in M2?

Ooooh, okay.  I was looking in the wrong place.  It looks like it's the help text for -server that's actually wrong.  Will fix, thanks.
