After months of hard work and dedication, PrimeFaces Team is glad to announce the release candidate of 5.2. As this is a major release, 5.2 is available as an open source and free fully featured community release. It is a great time to take 5.2 for a test run and report back issues you encounter so that we can fix them on final release due next week.
We’ll do a detailed post of the improvements next week with 5.2 Final release, but as an overview;
PrimeFaces Team is pleased to announce the new 1.1 Sentinel Layout-Theme release featuring the Live Preview Demo.
Sentinel 1.1 brings the fixes to all the issues reported, provides significant performance improvements, better cross device compatibility and improved quality. We’ve also converted the left menu to a PrimeFaces component under Sentinel’s own namespace to make usage easier and also to take advantage of PrimeFaces features such as MenuModel.
Wait is over and Sentinel 1.0 is now available. Sentinel is the very first Premium Layout- Theme featuring a responsive layout, awesome design, modern fonts and icons, pixel perfect implementation and cross browser support.
Sentinel does not contain any 3rd party css framework like bootstrap or zend, our designers have developed a lightweight css framework optimized to work with PrimeFaces Components.
A PrimeFaces Premium artifact like Sentinel has two main resources;
Layout is an amazing looking responsive template with a set of xhtml files including dashboard, login, error, 404 along with icons and images to kickstart applications quickly.
Each premium layout offers a compatible theme with a similar design. Although theme can be used standalone without the layout, we suggest using the theme of a layout for a unified look in your application.
From now on we’ll release a new Premium Layout-Theme each month, upcoming ones are;
Layouts and Themes have two different types of licenses. A license grants you a non-exclusive right to use and incorporate the item in your personal or commercial projects. If your end product including the item is going to be free to the end user or your client then a Basic License is what you need. An Extended License is required if the end user or your client must pay to use the end product.
Updates are free of charge for an unlimited period. Our QA team puts in a lot of effort on the testing and depending on community feedback, we’ll keep improving the artifacts for sure.
Sentinel officially support 5.0, 5.1, upcoming 5.2 and any 5.x release in the future. Previous versions like 4.0 and 3.5 are not officially supported but they will work fine for almost all components since dom of components haven’t changed drastically since these releases.
Support is provided at PrimeFaces Community Forum, each Layout-Theme gets its own subforum. Filing issue reports are done at PrimeFaces public issue tracker.
At the moment, there are no plans for a live demo, however there is a detailed video demonstrating the features in HD.
PrimeFaces Team is pleased to announce the new update on 5.1.x series bringing 18 improvements in total for improved quality. Significant highlights are the responsive charts and mobile dialog enhancements.
PrimeFaces Elite 5.1.10 is now available featuring the fully responsive DataTable and various improvements such as columnGroup support in frozen datatable columns, resizable columns support for grouped columns, new itemSelect event in SelectOneMenu and timezone improvements to Schedule component.
In previous 5.1.9 elite release, DataTable has received a responsive feature based on column priorities where visibility of columns are toggled based on their priority setting.
A brand new alternative responsive mode called reflow is added for the upcoming 5.1.10 Elite release. In reflow mode, columns are displayed in stacked format. Usage is simple as setting reflow attribute to true.
New versions of PrimeFaces Elite are now available bringing popular feature requests and regular maintenance. PickList has been enhanced with vertical orientation option in addition ajax events, dynamic columns now support cell editing and datatable has received responsive design enhancements.
