Finally, after a month of some silence, we have produced our last release candidate before we deploy 1.0. If all goes well, you will see the final release within a week or two. The bug list now only contains an issue relating to clustering. As such we advise you currently to not deploy your application on a cluster, until the issues are resolved, or to be very thorough in your clustering tests.
In this release you won't see major API changes, however the internals have improved significantly. The request cycle has now correct semantics, we have improved the redirect after post pattern, which now performs significantly better than before, and allows you to do your request handling and rendering in one pass, and then redirect to the rendered page. CompoundModel support has improved and works with more components than before. We added support for redirecting to external url's (e.g. Google) directly by introducing RedirectPage.
For the complete list of fixes, updates and changes please see the release history.
Wicket needs your input!
The Wicket team is preparing the final Wicket 1.0 release candidate. Therefore we need your help.

Send it to the mailinglist or create a bug report!
This is the final call for changes to Wicket 1.0.
The Wicket Team
The Kick Start project gives you a head start when you want to begin your own Wicket web application. We currently only kick start you in Eclipse, but NetBeans and IntelliJ support will arrive in the near future.
We are getting close to a final 1.0 release in the near future. This RC2 release marks the next milestone on the journey to the first production ready release of Wicket. Many of the problems found by RC1 users have been solved and this release should be a much smoother ride for all.
See the changes report for more information on the solved bugs in this release.
The Wicket team is proud to release the first 1.0 release candidate. This is probably the most important milestone in our history. From now on the feature list has been frozen, and the bug list will shrink. Please take a look at the changelog for this release.
