Google to update Web toolkit?

GWT 1.5 is expected in some form at the Google I/O developer conference, according to eWeek.

Google is expected to update its Google Web Toolkit (GWT) this week at its new developer conference, according to eWeek.

GWT is designed to help programmers write richer Internet applications using a beefed-up JavaScript programming technique called Ajax; the project was released as open-source software in 2006 with version 1.3, and the current version is 1.4. There are several GWT talks at the Google I/O conference.

Google has been working on improving GWT's performance, Java compatibility, and developer tools, eWeek said.
