6.3 branch is stabilizing

Hello all Vaadin developers!

The release of Vaadin 6.3.0 is just around the corner. The 6.3 branch has provided nightlies all the time, but at this point I can suggest all projects that are not in production to start using 6.3 builds. We'd appreciate all feedback we get on new features and each regression you can spot.

We'll build a semi-official "pre-1" release, that some of you may have spotted in trac timeline, in the beginning of next week (when our build master returns to his desk from a short vacation), but changes to nightlies will be minor. We'll be mostly just fixing bugs until the release.

Major features and where to focus attention:
* GWT 2.0, "OOPHM" now default, only one package for all platform, produces faster JS
* Form has a method called attachField() that can be overridden to build complex form layouts
* Drag and drop features. Tree, Table, and generic helper class DragAndDropWrapper. See Sampler demos in nightly package.
* Keyboard shortcuts are now much easier to hook. AbstractField has internal helper that hooks them seamlessly for developer. See Sampler for examples.
* Lots of smaller bug fixes and enhancements

So please, if you have a possibility, start using nightlies (or "pre-1" next week) and help us to ensure the best Vaadin release ever.

thanks in advance,
