Apache Wicket 8.5.0 released

28 May 2019

The Apache Wicket PMC is proud to announce Apache Wicket 8.5.0!

Apache Wicket is an open source Java component oriented web application framework that powers thousands of web applications and web sites for governments, stores, universities, cities, banks, email providers, and more. You can find more about Apache Wicket at https://wicket.apache.org

This release marks another minor release of Wicket 8. We use semantic versioning for the development of Wicket, and as such no API breaks are present breaks are present in this release compared to 8.0.0.

</dependency>

Or download and build the distribution yourself, or use our convenience binary package you can find here:
