Hi all,

we have build the preliminary GWT 2.8.0-rc1 version and now need help with DOA testing (making sure its not dead on arrival).

We are currently missing testers for:

Linux / Chrome
Windows 7 / IE8/IE9
Windows 7 / IE 10
Windows 7 / IE 11

If you are interested in spending ~1h in testing the new GWT release, please reach out to me.

-Daniel

I can work on some of the windows testing. I've scheduled time for Thursday and will continue on Friday if needed.

I can help with windows testing as well on Friday.
Brandon let me know what platforms are you going to test, I have XP with IE8, Win8 IE10, and Win8.1 IE11,  ready machines with everything set for GWT, but I don't have any win7

Good to hear Manolo. So, I've got Windows 7 with IE9 and IE10 and can start with those then. I don't have Windows 7 IE11, instead I have Windows 8 IE11. Come to think of it, there seems to be to many of the windows 7's. I think Windows 8 would work for IE11, would that be ok? And would it be of interest to test MS Edge on Windows 10?

We just fixed a bug in rc1, I'll redo the release now and give you guys a download link.

FWIW, I did all my testing with a JDK 7 (and some also with a JDK 8)

Can it be tagged and pulled via jitpack.io ?

Ha ha, jitpack wouldn't know how to build and deploy it: https://jitpack.io/docs/BUILDING/
…and the RC1 tag can still "move" if we find bugs during the smoke tests (it **would** move, as I found small issues, e.g. https://gwt-review.googlesource.com/15445)

Ideally, you should use the gwt-2.8.0-rc1.zip provided by Daniel as input to the maven/push-gwt.sh script from the GWT repo (select 2.8.0-rc1 and 1.0.0 for gwt and jsinterop versions respectively)
Currently, 2.8.0-SNAPSHOT are the same as 2.8.0-rc1, so you could also use that (but if you're planning on doing formal DOA/smoke tests before the RC1 release, you should use the maven/push-gwt.sh script)

I was trying to test the Maven samples, although each one of them seem to have some sort of issue. Could be I'm missing a step, or maybe some code configuration tuning is needed. I haven't noticed any blockers or other issues outside of that for IE9 on Win7. I'll aim for another browser tomorrow. 

I'm assuming that mvn gwt:run doesn't exist b/c I don't see it in the goals list, so I'm wondering what's the best testing goal for the smoke test.

See the README-MAVEN.txt file in each sample. One uses gwt:devmode, the other appengine:devserver_start followed by gwt:codeserver.
