Introducing PrimeFaces 10 – The NextGen
So where is version 9? V9 is skipped due to amount of changes, since PrimeFaces X is next gen, we wanted to have a special version.
What is new?
Well, everything. So let’s begin covering them.
PrimeOne Design Concept
In mid last year, PrimeTek has decided to renovate all the UI component libraries based on a new design language called PrimeOne Design Concept. PrimeFaces X is now based on this concept and brings 3 new themes Saga (Light), Vela (Dim) and Arya (Dark).
PrimeIcons is a new set of modern icons that is shared between the UI libraries of PrimeTek. Since version 4, all icons have been redesigned from scratch for a clean and modern look.
Visual Theme Designer
PrimeFaces Designer is a sass based theme api for developing PrimeFaces themes and has been reimplemented for v10. The bundle consists of an application containing the visual editor, sass api, all pre-built themes and a sample page with various components to test while designing your theme. The tool can be used in two ways; first approach is the visual ui theme editor and other one is editing the sass variables directly from the code.
Showcase has been rewritten from the ground up with a new design and all demos have been updated to include new set of data along with UI enhancements. Note: Component finder is coming soon.
Overlay animations have been redone to use new CSS animations with better performance and improved user experience.
PrimeFaces has already been a suite with extensive features, version X takes it a step further to include new components;

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all team members including Mert Sincan, Thomas Andraschko, Emil Lefkof, Sébastien Lepage and Burak Unsal for their efforts in getting PrimeFaces X ready. In addition, special thanks to all members of PrimeFaces community who use the library and provide constant feedback.
V11 will focus on bringing new advanced features from the existing Prime UI libraries, better responsiveness and enhanced accessibility. We also have some surprises to PrimeFaces Elite Users.
Always bet on Prime!
