Good news! Google Plugin for Eclipse 2.2M1 (including Google Web
Toolkit 2.2M1) is ready for you to download and try out from the
following update site URLs...

Eclipse 3.6
http://dl.google.com/eclipse/plugin/beta/e36

Eclipse 3.5
http://dl.google.com/eclipse/plugin/beta/e35

Eclipse 3.4
http://dl.google.com/eclipse/plugin/beta/e34

For just GWT 2.2M1, you can download it here...

http://code.google.com/p/google-web-toolkit/downloads/detail?name=gwt-2.2-M1.zip

The major new feature of GPE/GWT 2.2 is a fully integrated UI
designer. As many of you may recall back in September of this year, we
relaunched GWT Designer after the Instantiations acquisition. Since
then we’ve been hard at work formally integrating GWT Designer
directly into GPE. Our goal is to provide a unified installation and
simplified developer experience, and we think that we’ve done a very
good job with this. Our focus has been to remove redundant
functionality, merge build stories between GWT Designer and the GPE,
and to add support for the newest features of GWT itself.

We've also included GWT SDK support for HTML5 specific features, such
as Canvas and the Audio/Video tag. These APIs are still experimental
and may change a bit over the next couple releases, but we feel that
they're solid and deserving of some real mileage (by you). Along the
lines of new APIs, there's also some exciting new features in the
CellTable, namely adding default column sorting functionality, and
support for setting column widths.

As always, milestone builds like this are use-at-your-own-risk. There
are known bugs, and it isn't quite ready for production use yet. We
would also advise installing this into a new, clean Eclipse
environment or, at minimum, uninstalling any older version of GWT
Designer that you have installed.

Thanks Eric! I got an error when a Gin injector is created.  Is there a Gin jar that works with this GWT version?

When will it be released to Maven central? (or in other words, should I wait or deploy it myself to our local repo?)

Ok. I tried the "Contact Support" feature after a WindowBuilder internal
error. Is that feature active, or should I just file a bug report?

Cheers,

Will the final release have feature parity with GWT Designer? It looks like Ext GWT and Smart GWT are not supported in this plugin.

We are looking at ways to have the Ext GWT and Smart GWT folks take over this portion of the GWT Designer. For 2.2 we will have an updated stand alone version that still has this support.

GWT 2.2M1 was released to maven central yesterday, albeit mistakenly as version 2.2-rc1 instead of 2.2-m1 as it should have been due to a misunderstanding on my part. The next version pushed to Maven Central will be the 2.2 release.

Just so I understand correctly: does that mean the next version will finally be 2.2 (and will be pushed to maven central as any other) ? or that the upcoming 2.2 RC1 will only be released on Google servers and not pushed to maven central ?

Hi Thomas,

It's the latter. The upcoming 2.2 RC1 will be released on code.google.com, but not pushed to maven central. The next thing pushed to maven central will be 2.2.

Does this include the Touch Handlers that went in recently?

OK thanks, so maybe I'll deploy them in our internal maven repo then, so I'll have RC1 when it'll be out.

Great news!

is there maybe a documentation for the Canvas API? I love the fact
that GWT 2.2 comes with a build in solution, but does it cover all
canvas functions? I´m stucking on drawing an image on the canvas. How
can I create an ImageElement that fits to the context?
