Tapestry 5.0.11 is now available for download. This is unofficially a beta, meaning that the functionality is really nailed down and we're just stabilizing and fixing bugs.
There's a lot of cool new things in this release. I think the three biggest are:
- HTTPS control: annotate a page as only accessible via HTTPS. Tapestry takes care of the rest.
- Index pages for folders: kind of like the Start page, but everywhere.
- Automatic Hibernate ValueEncoders: Use an entity as a page or event context and what goes in the URL is the entity's id. Likewise, ids are turned back into entities when passed to event handler methods.
What's next? A period of stabilization and bug fixes and then a release candidate. And then, some really awesome (and really backwards compatible) stuff for the 5.1 release.
