Vaadin 6.8.0 ("Aakenus") is available

Continuing with the series of releases from Lapland this week, this particular release was made in a small wilderness hut at the Aakenus fell in Lapland. The hut, or should I say the new branch office of Vaadin, is called Porokämppä (Reindeer Hut), because this place was important for reindeer herding. Just nearby, there is an old reindeer herding area where the reindeer were counted. Many reindeer roam the area - I saw couple on my way over the Aakenus. The hut is at the midway of a 17 km nature trail. These wilderness huts are open for all trekkers, although now in off-season there are no others here. The hut is quite comfortable, with a fireplace, a large wooden bench for sleeping, and a logbook. The ceiling is quite low. On the other side of the fell, from where I arrived last night, lie the remains of a German Junkers Ju-52 transport plane that crashed in the fell in 1944, during the 2nd world war.

Vaadin 6.8 is the latest minor feature release that contains many significant enhancements, in addition to many bug fixes. For a list of the enhancements, see the Release Notes. For a detailed list of changes, see the list of closed issues in Vaadin Trac.

Get the installation package from the download site at http://vaadin.com/download. If you are using the Vaadin Plugin for Eclipse, upgrade the Vaadin version from the project preferences. If using Maven, the repositories will replicate in a few hours.

As always, when upgrading from an earlier version, you should recompile any custom widget sets and refresh your project in Eclipse. See the General Upgrade Notes for more details on upgrading.

PS. The codename stands for the entire 6.8 as I don't intend to make a similar trip for every maintenance release...

Edit 11.6.2012: Added a picture of the reindeer hut and some other minor changes.
