version of the Google Web Toolkit (GWT) has gone production. Tech Lead Bruce Johnson writes:

As we had hoped, GWT 1.3 RC 2 has proved stable and is ready to graduate today, making build 1.3.3 the official GWT 1.3 distribution. If you've been waiting to upgrade to 1.3, it's ready when you are.

In case you missed the news, GWT 1.3 is the first fully open source version of GWT. Our open source charter, "Making GWT Better," explained that GWT development would take place in the open, and that we'd even publish our engineering meeting notes. We're happy to report that it's working out really well. We've had many fruitful discussions on the contributors forum, and we've already received and accepted some patches that will make it into the next version of GWT.

This version contains a number of bug fixes and code cleanup, but no major new features. If you'd like to learn more about GWT, engineers Miguel Mendez and Kelly Norton will be leading a GWT tutorial at EclipseCon 2007 in March. Also a several books have either been released or are in the works now.
