Apache Wicket 1.3.7 marks end of life for Wicket 1.3

The Apache Wicket team is proud to present the release of Apache Wicket 1.3.7. This will be the last feature release for the 1.3.x branch. Going forward, only security fixes will be released in the 1.3.x branch - meaning that 1.3.7 may be the last release in this branch. All users are encouraged to upgrade to 1.4.0 as soon as possible. As work begins on 1.5 in the near future, we will be supporting 1.4.x and 1.5.x.

The Wicket Team

Apache Wicket 1.3.7

Apache Wicket is a component oriented Java web application framework. With proper mark-up/logic separation, a POJO data model, and a refreshing lack of XML, Apache Wicket makes developing web-apps simple and enjoyable again. Swap the boilerplate, complex debugging and brittle code for powerful, reusable components written with plain Java and HTML.
