Riding the crest of a wave, Prime Teknoloji has issued another update to their JSF UI Framework, bringing in some new components

Keeping on the schedule of monthly updates, PrimeFaces has
recieved its second major update to the 3x series, with the final
release of PrimeFaces
3.2
, bringing in a number of new components and reimplementing
some old ones.

Over 80 improvements have been made to the JSF UI
framework/component suite, most of which were outlined in last
week’s release candidate with today’s release tidying up the edges
somewhat. 

Four new components make an appearance: BlockUI (that
can block a particular content) DefaultCommand,
MegaMenu (displays
submenus of root items together) and the
similar SplitButton (which
has a default action feature and displays additional
items in an overlay).

As well as these additions, the three following components
have made the jump to being native widgets rather than being
third-party components. These are
GrowlProgressBar and Password.

All the new features are viewable in the
ChangeLog
 but some of the highlights for this version
include 

Maintenance has also been on the menu for PrimeFaces
3.2 with 35+ filed defect fixes. PrimeFaces QA team is
also currently working on a new Arquillan-JSFUnit test suite.
Self-proclaimed leader of the project, ‘Optimus Prime’ also reports
that they are well on the road to PrimeFaces Mobile
0.9.2 release, which is planned in the next 2 weeks, before the
focus shifts back to PrimeFaces 3.3. He also revealed that major
features of 3.3 would be the enhanced PrimeFaces Push,
implementation of popular feature requests and two new features to
Ajax framework.

the PrimeFaces team have provided newcomers with a bulky 460-page
User
Guide
– perfect reading to get you started.

In typical Michael Bay fashion,
PrimeFaces have also released this trailer. Here’s to PrimeFaces
