TIBCO General Interface 3.3 Released

After a public beta with lots of community participation, GI 3.3 is out

After a public beta with lots of community participation, TIBCO General Interface 3.3 has just been released. With added support for IE7 and Firefox 2, GI 3.3 is all open source BSD licensed, and 100+ AJAX components have been added for this version, for AJAX GUI, Data, Communication and System objects.

GI caching has received a performance boost, as have application init times, and large data set rendering.

Developers can get the latest release here.

TIBCO GI cofounder and director of product marketing, Kevin Hakman, will be speaking at the upcoming AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 (East) in New York City. He will be one of 100+ speakers and presenters on March 19-21, 2007, part of the largest AJAX-focused speaker faculty ever assembled in one place at one time to discuss AJAX, Rich Internet Applications, and Web 2.0 from multiple perspectives.

"As a developer, you now need a new set of baseline skills to keep up amidst a plethora of XML, SOAP, JSON, and other types of information services that are being exposed, consumed, mashed up, and processed in new and innovative ways," says Hakman. "It’s happening not just with Google and craigslist, but also within businesses of all sizes," he adds.

In short, the way we built Web applications is rapidly changing. In his session, "AJAX RIAs and the Service-Oriented Platform," Hakman will discuss these new Web architectures and show how the classic three-tier Web application model can be evolved toward a full service-oriented application stack complete with AJAX Rich Internet Application GUIs to deliver a new generation of more powerful, more scalable, and more richly featured Web applications.

Over 1,000 developers, architects, IT managers, and software professionals of every stripe will be converging in New York City to attend the conference. In addition to Kevin Hakman, delegates will be able to hear first-hand from other creators, innovators, leaders and early adopters of AJAX, and a slew of leading vendors will also be providing sneak peeks of new frameworks, tools, products and applications during the conference.
