A new version of the library packed with lots of bug fixes and a fair share of new features.
In this release we’ve worked hard on fixing bugs and making incremental improvements. There are no big changes, with the exception of the addition of a new media player widget (WMediaPlayer). This media player provides a uniform look across different technologies (Flash or HTML5 audio/video), with a UI that can be specified as a Wt widget or HTML.
Also worth mentioning is that we believe to have eliminated some nasty bugs in the httpd connector related to WebSockets, and thus especially for those of you using server push, this may be an interesting deployment setting to enable.
In the next weeks we hope to merge a big development branch which expands Wt with a number of new modules: authentication (Wt::Auth), mail client (Wt::Mail), HTTP client (Wt::Http) and Json parsing (Wt::Json). The main driver for this work is to provide a comprehensive solution for authentication, which includes password authentication but also third-party authenticators like OAuth.
If authentication has been bothering you, then feel free to let us know some of the wishes you have for this !
