Wakanda logo With the arrival of a beta version of Wakanda 2.0, a major release of the software stack for server-side JavaScript applications is approaching completion, just a few months after the release of version 1.0 of Wakanda. In addition to a number of new features, the Wakanda IDE beta now also supports the development of mobile apps.

Wakanda is an open source platform for the development of web-based business applications. It consists of a complete JavaScript software stack made up of a server, client framework and development environment. It enables developers to concentrate solely on developing with just a single language, rather than the mixture of languages (e.g. PHP and Java) which is the norm for web development.

The latest beta of Wakanda 2.0 is available to download from the project's site. The final version is expected to arrive in June; at the time of writing, the project's roadmap has yet to be updated.

The community edition of Wakanda is licensed under the GPLv3 and its source code is hosted on GitHub. 4D, the company behind Wakanda, also offers commercial licences and developer support, which start at $35 per month.
