Re: What is planned release date for GWT 2.8 (with lambdas) ?

That's good to hear.  What would be very helpful right now is a link on the GWT site which allows for the download of GWT-2.8.0-SNAPSHOT as an indication of its readiness for use.  New Javascript 'transpilers' for different languages are appearing rapidly, and it is a real shame that the most important update in Java for a decade - Java 8 - isn't visible as one of those languages.  Use of Lambdas is a huge step forward in the ease of writing of GWT code - surely it's a good idea to have this visible directly on the GWT site?

Hi everyone,

  Since I was expecting lambdas to appear in 2.7, now I'm checking for GWT 2.8 release announcement daily (or sometimes more often) :)
  In several days I think I'll start behaving like Cartman (in South Park) waiting for Nintendo Wii release (btw, you can watch it here) :)

  So, could anyone be so kind to shed some light on approximate GWT 2.8 with lambdas release date? Will it appear before New Year? Will it appear right before GWT.create conference or after?
  Please, help me :)

Kind regards,
