We’re happy to announce the release of Wt 4.1.0 (and Wt & JWt 3.4.0).

This is the first release to change the versioning scheme to be more aligned with semantic versioning. From now on, the last number is reserved for patches (i.e. important bug fixes), not extra features, as long as those bug fixes don’t require major changes. Patches will be released up until the next minor version bump.

From now on, the 4.1-release and 3.4-release branches will track any bug fixes, while the master branch will become the next release (in this case 4.2.0 or 3.5.0).

Apart from that, this release features one new widget (WLeafletMap) and many little tweaks, features, and bug fixes.

WLeafletMap is a wrapper around the Leaflet JavaScript library. It implements some of the basic features of Leaflet, and has one special feature: the ability to add arbitrary widgets as markers to the map using WidgetMarker.

Check the release notes for more information about all of the other changes, including possible backwards-incompatible changes.

Binary builds for Windows are available on the GitHub releases page.

Can someone improve the benchmark? https://www.techempower.com/benchmarks/#section=data-r18&hw=ph&test=fortune&c=6

I'm still not sure why Wt is underperforming in those benchmarks. Of course, we don't have access to that kind of testing hardware. We've tried it on our own hardware and in our testing Wt was actually closer to frameworks that are ranked higher up.
