Webswing continues to migrate more components from Swing to web components, enhancing the modernization of applications. New additions include combobox, checkbox, radio, formatted text input, spinner, progress bar, slider, textarea, and a context/right-click menu. These components join those introduced in 23.2, such as input, button, and panel.
