Re: Purpose of old package

Legacy dev mode was not removed when super dev mode was introduced, so any use of asm in legacy dev mode would not have changed.

That said, the package you are describing still exists in 2.8.2 and even in master: The most recent changes were to add support for Java 9, and the external library asm.jar (see, which was upgraded to 6.0 at that time.

The only change that I can see between 2.6 and 2.7 that you might be referring to is that the org.objectweb.asm packages are no longer included in gwt-dev.jar when it is distributed via maven, but instead we use the copy of the asm jar already in maven central.

What is the purpose of classes from '' package and classes that were available till 2.6.1. I believe they were required for plugin but not required after SuperDev. Is that correct understanding? If not what is the alternative in 2.8.2  for this?
