Re: New Presentation about Modern GWT Webapp Development

Personally I would not say that GWT widgets are deprecated. They are ported to be compatible with J2CL, they just look a bit dated because nobody has done a new fancy CSS for them. So it is generally fine to use them, but you should not expect that any new components will be added to the currently available ones anytime soon. But if someone is really interested in it I could see that widget internals could be modernized even more, a more modern CSS theme could be written and then gradually enhance these widgets.

I would more see them as "not recommend if you expect an evolving UI framework with components for all kinds of use cases, even use cases you don't have.".
