We're happy to say that the first Release Candidates for the Google API Libraries for Google Web Toolkit are now ready to be taken for a test drive.
Gears 1.1 Library (Release Candidate)
Gadgets 1.0 Library (Release Candidate)
The Gadgets library simplifies gadget development with GWT by automatically generating a Gadget specification from Java source and inserting a selection script in the specification much like a regular GWT project. After compiling your gadget with GWT, all files are in place to publish your gadget. This version currently supports the legacy Gadgets API based on the _IG_... namespace.
Google AJAX Search 1.0 Library (Release Candidate)
If you've been following the early milestone builds, you may also be aware that a Google Maps API Library for GWT is in the works. Stay tuned for a release candidate for that library.
With this set of release candidates, each library is now distributed separately so that you can download only the specific library you are interested in.
We encourage you to try these release candidates out and give us feedback, either through the issue tracker on code.google.com, or through the Google-Web-Toolkit or Google-Web-Toolkit-Contributors group.
