The wingS development team is proud to announce the general availability of wingS 3.2. Besides numerous bugfixes and stabilization issues, the most important improvements addressed by version 3.2 are as follows:

  • Added property change support
  • Added a servlet container emulation for JUnit tests.
  • Introduced transparent support for the Java Preferences API. The preferences are stored with a separate root for each user/ client.
  • Look & Feel of several components (including dialogs, calendars and menus) has been adopted towards a fresh design based on the YUI skin "SAM".
  • Achieved noticable speed improvements via new fine grained updates (e.g. for large tables).
  • Introduced a central overlay manager which handles all layering and focussing issues regarding windows and dialogs.
  • Made first steps towards wingS-CMS integration and dynamic template loading.
  • Improved dialogs, calendars and exception notifications.
  • Built foundation for more flexible MDI layouts.
