Road to PrimeFaces 6.3
PrimeFaces 6.3 is under active development and here are the 3 upcoming big ticket features.
Nova Theme Family
Nova themes are the new default face of the Prime UI Suites, initially PrimeNG has received the Nova update and PrimeFaces version is being worked on at the moment. Nova is generated by the PrimeFaces Theme Designer and has a premium look and feel while being open source and free. Note that current free themes will be deprecated in favor of Nova as they look outdated.
See the Nova in action at PrimeNG demo to get an idea of what is coming up.
PrimeFaces calendar uses jQuery UI datepicker which limits us from adding new features, for PrimeNG and PrimeReact we have our own calendar component and for 6.3, new DatePicker will be introduced featuring various new features such as multiple date selection, range selection and touch UI mode. See the PrimeNG version to find out more about the upcoming PrimeFaces DatePicker as feature set will be the same.
New Chart Components
PrimeFaces Chart components use jqPlot which is an outdated library with no maintenance, for PrimeNG and PrimeReact we’re utilizing Chart.js, a modern and easy to use charting library. PrimeFaces 6.3 will receive new chart components based on Chart.js.
Accessibility and Security
In addition to the new features, accessibility and security will be our top priorities along the way.
Always bet on Prime!!!
