We are pleased to announce the first pre-release of the upcoming Vaadin 6.0 is available. Upcoming Vaadin 6 will include two entirely new tools: an Eclipse plugin and a preview version of a WYSIWYG user interface editor.
To get a quick overview of Vaadin, read the 30 second intro. After that you can dig a little bit deeper by reading the online Book of Vaadin (We'll make a printed version available for order later).
Those already familiar with the predecessor of Vaadin - IT Mill Toolkit - will find themselves at home. We have not changed the component APIs very much and the upgrade should be pretty straight-forward. For others: it is easy to learn!
You know Java, You know Vaadin. You do web apps.
