Recommended GWT Map Library?

I've been using gwt-google-apis as a GWT wrapper of the Google Maps JavaScript API. I've been using the jar from here.

It works okay, but I'm starting a new GWT project that requires a map display, and I noticed that the jar hasn't been updated since 2012.

I'm starting a new project from scratch, so I'm in a position to start over with a new wrapper, if that's the correct way to go. I've come across GWT-OpenLayers, which looks promising, but I'm not sure how much of a change it will be from using the Google API wrapper. I've also come across branflake2267's wrapper, but that hasn't been updated in over a year.

So, my question is: what would you consider the "best" approach to displaying a map in a GWT application? Should I stick with the "official" google product? All I really need to do is display some polygons and circles on the map, but adding stuff like weather would be a really nice feature as well. Are there any libraries that I missed that are worth checking out?
