A major milestone for Scala+GWT

Stephen Haberman has announced that the majority of features in GWT's "Showcase" app are now available to Scala code as well. Aaron Novstrup did the original port to Scala, and Stephen's recent revamp of the GWT import code has gotten this much more functionality working.

Grzegorz Kossakowski has posted a compiled version on Dropbox for anyone that would like to click around in the final deployed version. A few of the things you will see working are:
  • Generators (see the "source code" tab)
  • Internationalization
  • Code splitting
  • Numerous built-in widgets

Scala+GWT still requires a lot of handholding to do anything with it, but this is a major milestone. Kudos to everyone who contributed!
