The popular open source JSF component suite reaches its third major release

Turkish Java EE and Agile mentoring specialists Prime Teknoloji have delivered the GA release of their JSF component suite Primefaces 3.0.

Since the second release candidate in December, 21 issues have been resolved for this major version which the change log notes as well as bug fixes. The documentation has also been brought up to date, providing a brilliant step-by-step guide to get underway in PrimeFaces.

It seems that avid JSF users won’t have long to wait for the next milestone, as the team confirmed that 3.1 is scheduled for mid-February, complete with six new components and popular feature requests from the community answered. Plus, we can expect a surprise or two – hopefully a nice one! 

With PrimeFaces coming into the autumn of its years, the team also announced that this would probably be the last time we see drastic changes within the component suite. After all, this release has been 10 months in the making, but perhaps it suggests that JSF as a whole is on the wane. They did say that their main focus from now on would be to create backwards compatibility, beginning with 3.0.

PrimeFaces 3.0 is available to download as of now, but also check out the team’s theatrical trailer, detailing just some of the neat little things PrimeFaces can do!
