Apache Wicket 6.9.0 released

27 Jun 2013

The Apache Wicket PMC is proud to announce Apache Wicket 6.9.0!

This release marks the ninth minor release of Wicket 6. Starting with Wicket 6 we use semantic versioning for the future development of Wicket, and as such no API breaks are present in this release compared to 6.0.0.

New and noteworthy

Switch between jQuery 1.x and 2.x depending on the user agent. For IE 6/7/8 jQuery ver. 1.x will be used, for any other browser - ver. 2.x. To use this resource reference do in your application’s init method:

protected void init() {

Upgraded Atmoshpere (1.0.13) and Bootstrap (2.3.2) resources.

Using this release

With Apache Maven update your dependency to (and don’t forget to update any other dependencies on Wicket projects to the same version):


Or download and build the distribution yourself, or use our convenience binary package

Upgrading from earlier versions

If you upgrade from 6.y.z this release is a drop in replacement. If you come from a version prior to 6.0.0, please read our Wicket 6 migration guide found at

Have fun!
