Re: GWT still viable for new projects?

Hey emurmur, I'm actually about a week or two away from releasing a fork of the collide project (a collaborative web IDE built by Google, but abandoned when they closed Atlanta).  It has an integrated gwt compiler that runs in the server, and super-dev-mode recompiles it's own running source code!  I'm hoping to run the demo inside of a g+ hangout, so people can review code with video chat and, most importantly shared, recompilable code. ^_^  It uses parts of wave and codemirror to implement the editors, which aren't comparable to desktop or anything, but for a web app that builds web apps, it's a pretty sweet tool (collide alone, not just my fork)! 

If you'd like to try it out when it's ready, just add me on g+ / click my name and get my email.

I agree with what James wrote.  There is a whole class of alt-js languages that compile to javascript.  GWT if by far the most mature and usable.  You can use the mature widget library for Enterprise kinds of stuff, our use low level browser api's and Elemental to write 'to the metal' browser code.  It optimizes the heck out of the resulting code.  It integrates with other Javascriipt libraries (like phonegap).  The new codeserver and support for source maps makes the workflow really great.  It's a pleasure to use and that is important.

With recent things like the development of Dart and the moving of GWT to a steering committee, I'm a little uncertain about GWT's future. To those of you more experienced with it - does it still make sense to use for new projects?
