PrimeFaces 6.1.1 Released

PrimeFaces 6.1.1 Released

PrimeFaces 6.1.1 is now available featuring important security updates and update to jQuery 2.2.4.

Security Update

We are unable to go into the details however an important fix for security has been included so if you are on 6.1 we strongly suggest updating to 6.1.1 and for users on 6.0, 6.0.19 is the suggested version.

Vulnerable jQuery

The jQuery version of PrimeFaces was 1.11.3 which has known vulnerabilities, as PrimeFaces depends on it, we’ve updated to 2.2.4 to benefit from the fixes the jQuery team had done. This has one downside which is dropping support for Internet Explorer 8.

TreeTable Filtering

Similar to DataTable, filtering is now also supported by TreeTable.

New Features and Enhancements

Defect Fixes


6.1.1 Elite is available at PrimeStore.

    We are still using PF Version 5.3.16. Further investigation showed, that this PF Version also depends on jQuery 1.11.3.
    Can you confirm, that PF Versions earlier 6.0 are also affected by this issue.

    I think a big warning sign should be put for the users of 6.0.0 and 6.1.0, on the download page, that those versions should not be used unless you really want to expose yourself to a big security issue.

    @Optimus Prime can you please update the PrimeFaces Extensions showcase with the war I sent you? The PF Extensions showcase is still showing the old 6.0 version.

    So only elite users can get the update that fixes a critical security issue? Am I wrong in thinking everyone should get this?
