These are just a few highlights from while I was gone…
Google Starts talking about a possible coding competition and gives some practice problems. Maybe I’ll take a crack at them on the train on Friday…
Google Mashup Editor had a feature release. Check out the post for the full list but my favorite new features include:
Ability to edit XML, CSS and HTML files uploaded into the editor.
New Tab styling and custom placement of tabs via CSS
Documentation for new features
Blogoscoped reported that iGoogle now has gadget to gadget communication. I think this will lead to the design of whole tabs with smaller more placeable gadgets that talk to each other rather then bigger uglier (possibly sluggish?) gadgets.
GWT 1.4 came out of beta
Google Gears 0.2 developer release ready for download. New features include:
Crosss-origin API support
HttpRequest and Timer modules (can be used as workers)
Google Spreadsheets got autocomplete. Its pretty nifty. It even understands Sun, Mon, and then what should come next, same for months and others.
