User Interface Generator: Metawidget v0.85

Version 0.85 of Metawidget, the user interface generator, is now available! This release has something for everyone:

For first time users, we have updated and improved the User Guide. For intermediate users, we have greatly expanded the architecture documentation, with lots more diagrams and detailed explanations. And for advanced users, we have substantially refactored the internals, including introducing new pluggable WidgetProcessors to handle more demanding requirements. Please note there are unfortunately some breaking changes, as covered in the Migration Guide.

In addition we have improved our support for RichFaces (now includes SuggestionBox, TabPanel and RichPanel), ExtGWT (now includes Slider), Swing (now includes configurable labels), and have added XML schemas for every component and lots more unit tests.

Special thanks to Girolamo Violante and Illya Yalovyy for their help with this release!

As always, the best place to start is the Reference Documentation:

Your continued feedback is invaluable to us. Please download it and let us know what you think.
