My intention is not to blow my own horn, but I was so excited to have been asked to join the Wicket development team (link) that I knew it was time to dust off the old blog and start trying to write some articles again. And no more than an hour after it was announced, I was asked about when 1.5 would be released! (a well-meaning joke). I have a lot of respect for all of the Wicket developers who have brought the great framework this far, and I hope that I will do well in assisting to carry the torch further.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed countless hours to making Wicket a great product! Now it’s time to roll up my sleeves and get to work!
