If you are wondering about the status of new PrimeFaces Reference Guide, half of the work is done, hopefully it will be available with 2.2 final. We’ve decided to use e-junkie to sell the guide as it provided all the services I’ve looked for like stamping name of the buyer to pdf, paypal integration and more. I’m sure PrimeFaces community will support us and contribute to the PrimeFaces development by purchasing the guide which is 450+ pages now. See sample chapter covering accordion panel.
Next stop is 2.2 final, between 2.2.RC2 and 2.2 we’ll probably wait for 2 weeks to receive community feedback, also I’m leading two different projects for our clients powered by PrimeFaces and would like to test RC2 release in production before releasing 2.2 final. As I always say, using PrimeFaces in real life as an application developer really helps us to see things from the PrimeFaces user side which is one of the reasons of making this project success. I’d choose a library that is used by its authors everyday in production rather than a tool provided by any vendor who doesn’t actually use it to create applications.
Regarding PrimeFaces 2.3, target date is January 25, 2011. On same date 2 years before, we’ve released PrimeFaces 0.8, project came a long way since then but passion is still here, we can’t wait anymore to start working on 2.3 as we are excited about the new Ajax Push integration via Atmosphere, redesign of TouchFaces as PrimeFaces Mobile, implementation of top 25 most voted feature requests and all the other surprises.
