Re: GWT 2.8.2 release

Hi Philippe,

Without a full error message, it sounds like dev mode might have been turned on at some point while you were building, so the compiler has its output replaced by the dev mode version (which failed when iy couldn't find a server). Can you try again, but do a full clean build this time to be sure that only production JS makes its way into your war file?

No changes are required when moving to GWT 2.8.2 from 2.8.1, as long as you've taken a look at the release notes and are aware of those details.

Thank you for this new version!

We immediately tested this 2.8.1 and checked that everything works as expected in development mode.
However we experienced a strange and blocking deployment problem:
- compilation with unchanged settings (xml files, compilation settings ... exactly as with 2.8.1)
- deployment on tomcat (8.0.36)
- ... then browsing the deployed version fails, a message mentioning that no development (!) service runs (on the production server!). 

Very strange. Something in the compilation produced a development context instead of a production context.

Getting back to 2.8.1. solved the problem...

Should we update some compilation settings ?

Waiting for a solution to this problem to move again to 2.8.2.

Best regards,

Today we released the next version of GWT, version 2.8.2. A few quick highlights from this new release:
  • GWT can now run on Java 9 (though Java 9 features are not yet supported, coming soon!)
  • Chrome 61 change in getAbsoluteTop/Left has been fixed
  • Errors on the page reported from window.onerror are now reported to your uncaught exception handler
  • GWT now generates CSP compliant dom elements

The release notes can be found at Get yours from Maven Central, or from the zip release.

Special thanks to Max Barkley of RedHat who helped lead the release effort this time, and to all of the fantastic testers who helped us ensure that this release was ready to go.
