New Features and Changes in RC 5 (2003-11-24)
=============================================

  style settings and css class settings collide.
- bugfix: wrong event methods were called when having more than 
  one WebCardLayout (or CTabbedPane) on a WebForm


Documentation

- We have started to add more specific information to many of
  the settings that explicitly affect the rendered HTML, JavaScript etc. 
  output (like in com.w4t.WindowProperties). This will be continued in 
  later releases.

- bugfix: reference to menu item or toolbar button was not correctly
  assigned in CMenu and CToolBar commands
- bugfix: nothing happened when setting the indexed cssFile 
  property on WebForm (WebForm.setCssFile( String[] )
- universal attributes (css class, direction etc.) were not rendered
  on container components
- setName() on web components validates the name attribute (must be 
  correct Java identifier)

New Features and Changes in RC 2 (2003-08-27)
=============================================

W4T Eclipse (1.1.1)

- New libraries: the bundle contains now the 
  latest versions of Apache Xerces (2.5.0) and PoolMan (1.22).
- performance enhancements: W4T Warp shuts down worker threads on restart
- Bugfixes include:
  - Problems when using the default package.
  - Message 'Could not start or restart ...' if 
    DB-Driver does not exist (anymore).
  - Error messages after a restart of W4T Warp, 
    when deleting, cutting and pasting components in the Design View


W4 Toolkit library (2.0.26)

- setting imageSetName works properly for single 
  items and branches in treeviews (com.w4t.dhtml.TreeView, 
  TreeNode and TreeLeaf). Images set on single node or leaf 
  were not displayed or not always displayed.
- improved handling for image sets on treeviews 
  (com.w4t.dhtml.TreeView, TreeNode and TreeLeaf): 
  images can be shared between image sets now. 
- W4T kills skimmer-threads on web application shutdown 
  (this is primarily an optimization for improved 
  cleanup behaviour for long-running applications 
  in productive environments).
