Finally: OpenWGA 6.1 released and available for download
So without further ado we present you the newest member of the OpenWGA release family: OpenWGA Server 6.1, as explained before, is more of an "evolutional" release which improves above 6.0 at some important key points, without bringing those big changes. However we are sure that this package has still something to offer for every OpenWGA user.
Unfortunately we fall back into old habits regarding the OpenWGA 6.1 documentation, which is not yet released, but will be in the very near future. Meanwhile you may want to have a look at what our issue tracker has to say about this new version or read about it in a previous posting.
OpenWGA 6.1 introduces the OpenWGA 6 feature stream. As a 6.0 user you can now choose if you want to stick with the base release and get regular and small maintenance updates from the 6.0 base stream or if you want to switch to the 6.0 feature stream, which will bring new features faster but may mean more maintenance effort. See our release strategy for details.
If you want to update and use our debian package repository then you will find OpenWGA 6.1 under a new package name to install: openwga6-ce-feature (or openwga6-ee-feature for enterprise customers). This will replace your old OpenWGA version with 6.1 but keep everything else intact.
All others will find OpenWGA 6.1 distributions as usual in the downloads section.
OpenWGA Developer Studio 2.1 accompanies this server release and is released along with it, bringing support for developing 6.1-compliant designs. If you already have WDS 2.0 then you can upgrade to this version via menu "Help > Check for Updates". Also you can just wipe your installation and replace it with a new one from our Downloads. Just make sure that your Workspace directory is not contained in your installation (which we do not recommend anyway).
One more thing to announce: The end of April 2013 will also see the end of the 3-year-support-lifespan of OpenWGA 5.0 base release. If you still use this release and haven't upgraded yet then you should do so in the next time, either stepping up to 6.0 or directly to 6.1. There will be no more maintenance for this version beginning with May 2013.
