Good morning GWT and GWTP fans !
In celebration of the GWT.create Conference, we’re launching three new releases in the next few days. If you’re attending one of those two conferences, Christian Goudreau and Julien Dramaix (two of our Bees) are looking forward to see you in person !
Today, we’re launching a new version of GAE-Studio, our kickass Google App Engine tool. Monday an IntelliJ plugin for GWTP is rolling out for all you IDEA fans out there, and next Tuesday, “tah-dahhh!!!” …a new version of GWTP will be released.
But today, we’ll dig into the newest features in GAE-Studio 0.6 – which we have just released along with a new wave of invitations so more people can join the party in progress!
First of all, let’s extend a warm welcome to our new UX designer, Manon Gruaz.
She did an amazing job redesigning our login page and she’s just started a complete redesign of the GAE-Studio GUI (visualizer and profiler). She’s going to make our tools look awesome through her own individual style of magic.
Under the hood, we have integrated our new licensing system with GAE-Studio. This was announced earlier. For the moment, we only have one beta key, which is 0aa490b7dacaf078d8f3111f1dec7253. You can use that for as long as you continue to beta test the software.
Moreover, we’re now using the Channel API (websocket) for the profiler. It will be more efficient in terms of resources. As usual, we fixed a few bugs as well in this release, and solidified our tests. In case you were wondering, you can now use String Ids without any problem.
We have also fleshed out and improved the design of JSON entity editing. You can now use any Objectify type in your Google App Engine application.
That’s it for this GAE-Studio release. Tune in to our blog monday for the official annoucement of the IntelliJ IDEA plugin !
