Extensions Project Joins PrimeFaces
We are excited to announce that PrimeFaces Extensions project will be merged into PrimeFaces. Extensions have a lot of great components that are popular in PrimeFaces community. Merger will have various advantages such as avoiding compatibility issues between core and extensions, better support for future.
To begin with, not all components will be merged and they will stay at extensions project, popular components such as timeline, inputnumber and keyfilter will be moved to core whereas components having duplicate functionality will be reviewed to see if missing functionality in core will be added from the extended one. Finally components including codemirror are not planned for the core.
Overall we are all excited and will start moving them in near future targeting 5.4 release.
