Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Wicket 6.12.0 released!
Date Thu, 07 Nov 2013 13:31:40 GMT
The Apache Wicket PMC is proud to announce Apache Wicket 6.12.0!

This release marks the twelfth minor release of Wicket 6. Starting
with Wicket 6 we use semantic versioning for the future development
of Wicket, and as such no API breaks are present in this release
compared to 6.0.0.

New and noteworthy
------------------

This release fixes 16 bugs and adds the following improvements:

 * Support MultiFileUploadField in FormTester
 * Add support for parsing IE 11 user agent
 * Log the exception if the application cannot start properly
 * Add Wicket.Event.unsubscribe method
 * Allow form components to trim the input themselves
 * Allow DebugBar contributors to be removed
 * Session management doesn't work with Jetty's JDBCSessionManager
 * HeaderItem to be Serializable

JQuery update in 6.9.0
----------------------

As of Wicket 6.9 we ship JQuery 1.10.1. The JQuery project has
decided to remove deprecated APIs from their codebase from JQuery 1.9
and up. This means that JQuery plugins using these deprecated APIs no
longer work. See the JQuery migration guide for more information,
available from http://jquery.com/upgrade-guide/1.9/

If your application depends on these deprecated APIs you can easily
downgrade to JQuery 1.8.3-the previously provided JQuery that still
contains these APIs. Download the 1.8.3 release of jquery and add it
to your project in its application's init method:

    @Override
    protected void init() {
        getJavaScriptLibrarySettings()
            .setJQueryReference(yourJquery183ResourceReference);
    }

CDI injection issue
-------------------

In the CDI releases of Weld 2.0.1 and prior, it was assumed that
injection in anonymous inner classes was not legal and when
attempted, it resulted in an exception:

    Caused by: org.jboss.weld.exceptions.DefinitionException:
    WELD-000070 Simple bean [EnhancedAnnotatedTypeImpl] private class
    com.example.HomePage$AForm cannot be a non-static inner class

This was reported as
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WICKET-5226, as it became an
issue in Glassfish 4, which ships with Weld 2.0.1 (or earlier). We
implemented a fix for this particular issue by not injecting into
anonymous inner classes.

Unfortunately this was not a bug that needed fixing on our part, but
rather in the Weld framework (see
https://issues.jboss.org/browse/WELD-1441)

Therefore we reverted the commits done for WICKET-5226 and hope that
Glassfish will upgrade their Weld implementation soon. For the whole
story read
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WICKET-5264

Glassfish has fixed this in trunk according to

    https://java.net/jira/browse/GLASSFISH-20619

but the fix has yet to be integrated into a release.

Using this release
------------------

With Apache Maven update your dependency to (and don't forget to
update any other dependencies on Wicket projects to the same version):

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.wicket</groupId>
    <artifactId>wicket-core</artifactId>
    <version>6.12.0</version>
</dependency>

Or download and build the distribution yourself, or use our
convenience binary package

 * Source: http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/wicket/6.12.0
 * Binary: http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/wicket/6.12.0/binaries

Upgrading from earlier versions
-------------------------------

If you upgrade from 6.y.z this release is a drop in replacement. If
you come from a version prior to 6.0.0, please read our Wicket 6
migration guide found at

 * https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/WICKET/Migration+to+Wicket+6.0

Have fun!
