Re: GWT 2.8 generates code 14% bigger than GWT 2.7

Do you plan to bring Closure Compiler (-XenableClosureCompiler option) back to GWT? It was very useful for us.

No. It was experimental and had some rough edges that haven't been fully implemented.

You would need to execute it manually using the GWT output as input to Closure Compiler (and provide an extern file to protect special GWT variables). Alternatively try build your own GWT SDK and rollback the commit that removed closure compiler from GWT.
