What did you do this summer?

June and July bring out the best in Finland. Warm south-west winds, blue skies and glimmering sea surround us in the archipelago.

This is the time to get those things done that you've excused yourself from due to bad weather and lack of inspiration during the winter. And also a good time to take a look at something new and interesting.

Summer release parties

Just before the end of June and before the beginning of vacation season in Finland we managed to release several updates to Vaadin tools. Let's take a look at the biggest ones.

Vaadin 7.1.0

After a lot of extra testing, we managed to release the Vaadin 7.1 at last in the end of June.

The focus in this release was of course the server push feature. It helps you create more interactive and collaborative applications, where users can virtually in real-time see changes and updates made by other users. Read the blog post about Vaadin 7.1 to learn more about this release and other new features.

Vaadin TouchKit 3.0

GWT.create

Vaadin Touchkit is the mobile optimized widget and component package built on top of Vaadin Framework. Since version 3.0 released couple of weeks ago, we added support for Vaadin 7. Find out more and watch a recording from the webinar held on July 3rd at vaadin.com/touchkit.

Vaadin Charts 1.1

Earlier in June we released a backward compatibility update for Vaadin Charts. This means that you now have the possibility to use Vaadin Charts also with your Vaadin 6 application.

Vaadin Charts is the best charting option for Vaadin applications. Including over 50 different charts, it gives you a lot of visualization options to build business reporting and monitoring applications. Take a look at the samples here.

GWT.create conference on two continents

Aside to Vaadin updates we have also a big announcement to make. In December there will be two conferences about GWT and related technologies - in San Francisco, CA and in Frankfurt, Germany.
