It has been a long ride since 5.3 and we’d like to thank two core developers of PrimeFaces; Mert Sincan and Thomas Andraschko, without their lead, it wouldn’t be possible to have all these enhancements. Also special thanks to PrimeFaces power users Oleg Varaksin, Sudheer Jonna and Ronald van Kuijk for their continous feedback on 6.0. Finally thanks to all community members who have reported issues, made pull requests and provided feedback to improve PrimeFaces
As of today, we’re officially starting to work on 6.1 and our estimate is mid autumn as the release date. Along with regular improvements, there will be a new spreadsheet component to provide excel like functionality. In addition, our design team is working on new next-gen premium layouts and theme for PrimeFaces.
Always bet on Prime!
