Hi all,

we've just published M7, the last milestone towards RAP 1.5. It contains
support for SWT.ARROW buttons, markup support for the List widget, new
fly-in and fly-out animations for Shell and Composite, some theme
adjustments and as always, lots of bug fixes.

You can find a more detailed list of changes and bug fixes in our New &
Noteworthy [1].

The M7 build can be downloaded or installed from the usual locations,
see [2].

Please note that we changed some interface names in the new application
API that was introduced in M3. We noticed that the API lead to some
confusion and wanted to change this before the release. The changes are
explained in this post [3]. If you already use this API, please update
your code.

Regards, Ralf

Hi Piotr,

currently, the clientscripting can only be obtained as source code from
the github repository [1]. We plan to move it to the RAP Incubator until
the Juno release. If you've already created a clientscripting bundle for
M6, this bundle should still work with M7.

Does this answer your question?

Regards, Ralf

Yes, thank you. I had a problem after platform change from M5 to M6, that's why I have asked.

Hi Ralf,

We have been using RAP from last year where we successfully migrated our RCP application to RAP and now we enjoy the virtues of single-sourcing.
As you mentioned that this is the last milestone release of 1.5 version of RAP. Could you please highlight the road map/plans of next RAP release. I heard that the next release will be a major version upgrade to 2.0 where multiple things are going to change. If so then what are the changes you guys are looking for. I guess a small writeup or blog this will benefit all the RAP users.

Hi Avrajit,

happy that you're enjoying single sourcing!

At the moment we are all busy delivering 1.5. We usually do our release
planning later in the summer.

But it's true, we already decided that the next version will be a 2.0.
There are some big changes in RAP under way already, such as the new
protocol [1] and the new ApplicationConfiguration API to use RAP without
the Eclipse stack [2].

We're changing RAP incrementally and the 2.0 will mark the completion of
a major rework, the new protocol. This will also involve some new API in
RWT, and deprecated API will be removed. But as long as you don't use a
lot of internal or deprecated API, the migration should be smooth.

We will surely write something about our plans with the next release on
our blog once we've shipped 1.5 and start making plans for 2.0.

Best Regards, Ralf
