[ANN] Isis 1.3.0 released - crammed full of goodies!

The Isis team is pleased to announce the release of:

  • Apache Isis Core version 1.3.0
  • Wicket Viewer 1.3.0
  • Restful Objects Viewer 2.1.0
  • JDO Object Store 1.3.0
  • Shiro Security 1.3.0
  • Quickstart Archetype 1.3.0
  • Simple Archetype 1.3.0

There are some major new features in this release; indeed this is probably the most significant release of Isis as a TLP.  In core, the new features include:
  • contributed collections and properties
  • view model support (across both Wicket and RO viewers)
  • UI layouts defined in JSON files
  • better integration and BDD testing support, including Cucumber-JVM integration
  • domain services for handling application and user settings service
  • domain service providing various developer utilities (eg downloading metamodel)
  • domain service incorporating Guava's EventBus service); 
  • context-specific autoComplete
  • conditional choices
  • new annotations: @SortedBy; @CssClass; @PostsPropertyChangedEvent
  • helpers for writing contract unit tests and for writing comparable entities
  • optimistic locking improvements

In the Wicket viewer, new features include:
  • default dashboard
  • more sophisticated layouts, with multiple columns
  • dynamic reloading of layouts
  • sortable table columns
  • BlobPanel displaying images
  • bookmarkable actions
  • upgrade to wicket 6.11.0

In JDO objectstore, new features include:
  • better integration/validation between Isis and JDO metamodels
  • upgrade to DataNucleus 3.2.7
  • better Google App Engine compatibility
  • expose JDO PersistenceManager via domain service for more sophisticated use cases

The Restful Objects viewer also had several bug fixes vis-a-vis the RO spec v1.0 (thanks to our GSOC students for highlighting these).

In addition to all that, there is a new "simple" archetype, making it easier to get started.

Full release notes are available at [1,2,3,4,5,6,7] on the Isis website.

You can access this release directly from the Maven central repo [8], 
or download the release and build it from source [9].

Enjoy!
