Consider a very typical scenario: you have a web application that serves an SPA. The SPA itself has several "pages," each with its own client-side routed URLs (think of Gmail, for instance.) Then people copy some of these URLs from their "session" and send them to others, who in turn expect to find exactly what the sender saw. Except with most SPAs, the server-side knows nothing about the URLs generated on the client and usually throws you back to some initial SPA page. Implementing this properly requires you to share all or a subset of the URLs both on the server and on the client. With WebSharper, this is easy.

We started work on WebSharper 4 more than a year ago, open-sourced it in May and published first beta packages in August. It is a project with a big scope and still some features are planned before we would call it stable. This article is an introduction and also a status report.
Introducing new and improved WebSharper 4 beta features for RPCs: customizing both client and server side.
A while ago we rolled out a new UI for Try WebSharper, essentially changing it into a snappy single-page application (SPA). Among others, you can now switch between trying out various snippets and making your own without any noticable delay, no more annoying page refreshes. [more..]
This is a minor release with bug fixes and updates for dependent libraries.
Just over a year ago, last year in December we released WebSharper 3 on Apache, putting it into the hands of every F# web developer. One thing we learned from WebSharper 2 is that more frequent releases are better and this year kept the whole team busy with constant innovation and new releases. Below is a list I cherry-picked from the WebSharper blog.. [more]
