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

And why don't keep it experimental too in 2.8 instead of removing it?

Why keeping it if it's only half baked into GWT and you can run it externally as well? 

But I guess part of the reason to delete it is because GWT is in the process of cleaning itself up to move forward to GWT 3.0. Given that it is very likely that GWT 3.0 will be based on the upcoming J2CL compiler, you will probably need to run Closure Compiler manually as part of your build process (Gradle, Maven, whatever) anyways if you switch to GWT 3.0.
