PrimeFaces 6.2 Roadmap

PrimeFaces 6.2 Roadmap

PrimeFaces 6.2 is under development and our plan is to release first release candidate in mid november. In addition to regular maintenance, quality improvements and new features, two noticeable features will be retired.

PrimeFaces Mobile

PF Mobile is a renderkit for the existing components however we’ve just realized that we have to maintain two different sets at the same time so decided to deprecate PF Mobile and focus on the responsiveness of the standard renderkit. So in 6.2, mobile will be deprecated and removed in 6.3.

PrimeFaces Push

PrimeFaces Push uses atmosphere framework under the hood and since JSF 2.3 provides a socket component, we believe it is time to retire Push. As with mobile, push will be deprecated in 6.2 and removed in 6.3.

In summary, we’d like to focus and spend our time more on the core components and features. In future, just like the recently releases Serenity, more templates will follow and we plan to maintain PrimeFaces many more years ahead.

    Excellent, great news.
    Will you include support for JSF 2.3?

    Whatever happened to the Spreadsheet component that was going to be in 6.1, then when 6.1 was released, it said it was going to be in 6.2?
