GeoExt 0.5 RC1 Announcement

The GeoExt community is proud to announce the first release candidate of GeoExt 0.5, the first GeoExt version to be released.

As of RC1, the GeoExt 0.5 release closes 61 outstanding tickets, including 40 new features or enhancements and 16 bug fixes.

We invite you to help us test the 0.5 release candidate! To test in your applications, please download [1], unzip it to the root of your GeoExt powered application, and include the following script tag in your html:

<script src="GeoExt/script/GeoExt.js"></script>

GeoExt 0.5 depends on OpenLayers >= 2.8 and ExtJS >= 2.2.

The source is available on svn at [2]. Bug reports can be filed in Trac, under the 0.5 RC1 version and 0.5 milestone, at [3].

The 0.5 release comes with a number of important features, the full list of which can be found in the Release Notes, at [4]. Some of the highlights include:

  • MapPanel to integrate OpenLayers maps in ExtJS applications
  • LegendPanel to display legends for WMS layers
  • LayerNodes and LayerContainers to create customized layer switchers
  • Popups as anchored Ext windows
  • Various Ext data components for convenient handling of OpenLayers layers, vector features and WMS Capabilities documents

All forthcoming RC announcements will be sent only to the Developers list: anyone interested in tracking the progress to a final release should subscribe to that list at [5].

We look forward to your feedback on this release.
