It's been roughly 4 months since the first public release of visural-wicket, a set of open-source components and tools for the Apache Wicket web framework.
Since then the project has seen 150+ developer downloads and a generally very positive reaction from the Wicket community.
I'm pleased to announce, the release of the next major release of the library - visural-wicket 0.6
Version 0.6 brings a bunch of new components and enhancements -
As you can see there was a lot of stuff! Most of this was developed in response to my latest Wicket project - onmydoorstep.com.au
The live examples application has also seen an update with example implementations for most of the new features.
You can download the distribution and examples application at the visural-wicket project on Google Code.
Some features, such as the generic security framework are not well documented. I intend to do either a blog post or wiki article which steps through these features in the near future.
Maven support has also been added.
Note that to use LessCSS you also need Mozilla Rhino - this is not included as a dependency out of the box. You may add it to your project manually if you are using the LessCSS features of visural-wicket.
Anyhow, hope you enjoy the new release and as always, get in touch if you have any feedback, good or bad!
