FW/1 Version 2.1.1 Released - Layout Bug Fix

January 18, 2013 ·

Thanks go to Chris Blackwell for this: if you rely on calling layout() explicitly, you'll get an exception in version 2.1. Chris provided a fix and version 2.1.1 contains that. Version 2.1.1 is the default download now from FW/1's RIAforge page as well as from the FW/1 Github repo.

If you don't use layout() directly, you should be fine with version 2.1.

When Java was young!

January 04, 2013 ·

I just happened across this quote about Java:

We've also seen a new light in the OO world. A language that promises portability and simplicity, a faster way to build tomorrow's application: the distributed application. Of course, I'm talking about Java. Is it all hype? Is it the new saviour? Hopefully, you'll all be convinced that it is neither. It is, however, an extremely important development and provides us with yet another tool with which to solve the problems around us.

Although early days yet, Java too will need standardisation in order to "facilitate commerce" as they say in the standards' world. That effort is expected to begin shortly but we do not know yet how it will progress.

Can you guess when that was written? Or who wrote it?
