The Q3 release of Gaia Ajax Widgets was made available this week by developer Frost Innovation. Other improvements to the open source product include enhancements in documentation, samples, and widgets.
"The product is [intended] to, first of all, make it very much easier to develop rich Internet applications or Web 2.0 applications or whatever they're called this week," said Thomas Hansen, CTO of Frost Innovation in Norway.
Users can get Gaia Ajax Widgets either via the GNU General Public License version 2 for free software, or via a Gaia Commercial License. With the GNU license, users must distribute the code for their applications. If commercial software vendors want to build an application and not release the source code, the product then costs Euro 295 (AU$499) for a single developer license.
The technology can be downloaded from the Gaia Web site.
