GWT 2.6.1 release coming soon!

The GWT team recently published it’s second release candidate for the 2.6.1 version. The gwt maven plugin project kept up and published RC releases as well.

The GWT RC2 can be downloaded directly from the following URL, and through the maven central repository.

Unfortunately, I could not find any release notes at the gwtproject.org site (as it did for past RC versions). That is why I am publishing the changes/ fixes since release 2.6.0 here:
