PrimeFaces 6.2-Final Released with Harmony

PrimeTek is proud to announce the 6.2-Final released of PrimeFaces featuring over 500 improvements, better performance, significantly improved security, new components along with the all-new Harmony premium application template.

It has been over 9 years since the development of PrimeFaces has began and considering the pace of technology we’re glad to see that there is still a significant demand with over 1 million downloads per year for PrimeFaces. We hope to maintain and improve the library for the upcoming years with passion. Using our experiences on PrimeNG and PrimeReact, we aim to continue modernizing PrimeFaces so that it catches up with latest trends.


Sidebar is a new addition to the suite to display an overlay panel at the edges of the screen.


InputGroups is a CSS utility to group form elements with icons, text and buttons.


New p:autoUpdate tag allows autoUpdate functionality on any component so that the components gets updated without requiring explicit definition.


When this context parameter is enabled, inline scripts are combined and moved to the bottom of the screen, this drastically improves the page load times and reduces the page size as well.


At the moment there are no known security issues with PrimeFaces 6.2 thanks to updating to latest jQuery and patching of the reported potential XSS cases.

    Nice Work Primefaces Team!

    I have a question, in the post ( of the RC1 of primefaces, there was mention of a new component called Spreadcheat, but I have not seen a trace of it, has it been postponed for a next version?

    Thank you very much for all the great work you do. regards

      Why don’t you use Tiefaces? It’s a very complete library. I don’t think it’s a good idea that Primefaces give it a shot as Tiefaces does pretty well the job

    Looks beautiful. Is something similar planned, for example, for the Prime-NG stack or is something similar already available?
