Version 0.9.1 is out. It is a minor update with some API cleanup and a few new miscellaneous features. The most noteworthy thing is the inclusion of a sage-extras jar that has some none-core widgets. One is a map viewer and the other is a coverflow viewer. These widgets are not ready for prime time but they are usable and the source is available. The coverflow viewer can be seen in action on the iTunes Clone demo.

I also did an interview with Kirill Grouchnikov from Pushing Pixels. You can see the interview here

Version 0.9 has been released. This is the code complete version with stable APIs. Notable in this version is better Mac support, as well as automatic support for deploying any Sage application as a Java Applet. Also available is an alpha version of Guru™, the IDE for sage that includes a WYSIWUG form designer, JavaScript editor, and interactive JavaScript debugger with remote debugging support. What’s cool about Guru™ is that is just another Sage application and a large portion of the code is written in JavaScript.

The website (http://www.sparseware.com/sage/) has been upgraded and screen casts have been added to show the demo applications as well as demonstrate Guru. The source code for the two main demos can also be browsed online. The source code for all demos as well as the source for Sage itself is available for download on the site.
