The WaveMaker development team is proud announce the availability of WaveMaker 6.6.0 M2, the second milestone of the 6.6.0 release.
With this release we have finally moved project security from using Acegi to using Spring Security. This upgrade enables us to provide you with better support for existing security features. For example, LDAP can now search multi-organizational trees and we now have an Active Directory option for typical AD setups.
This milestone also introduces tooled SSL support. Enabling security on a project now provides an option for requiring the application to run via https so user data is encrypted over the wire. We can’t install the certificate for you on your deployment server, but we’ve taken care of everything else.
With M2 we also introduce the new theme designer. This theme designer incorporates the feedback and comments we’ve gotten on the original theme designer and is more widget oriented. The new theme designer is easier to use and we’ve got a shiny new theme in the works to show off what one can do with it. Project import and export has been reworked. Import/export now lets you import and export those custom themes and components that go with your project as well as export projects as templates.
Finally, we’ve addressed the database re-import and java type issues recently reported by the community. These fixes will be made available in the 6.5.X stream at a later time.
