Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Tobago 3.0.0 Release
Date Wed, 11 Jan 2017 08:12:36 GMT
The Apache MyFaces team is pleased to announce the release of Apache
Tobago 3.0.0.

Apache Tobago is a component library for JavaServer Faces (JSF) that
allows to write web-applications without the need of coding HTML, CSS
and JavaScript.

Main new features
-----------------

* LayoutManager moved from Server to CSS (or JS in limited cases)
* Themes using CSS lib Bootstrap 4 http://getbootstrap.com/
* Responsiveness
* Simplify many things by using current technologies
* Easier to integrate Tobago in other projects
* Easier to integrate libraries in Tobago
* In general: do less magic, but more standard

A more detailed list you will find in the demo:

Known limitations and bugs:
---------------------------

The classic grid layout manager is not working exactly in the same
manner as before. Here are some issues, especially for vertical layout.
The main focus of this release was segment layout and flex layout.

Currently we have only the standard theme. The other themes have only
some colors changed, but are not fascinating. So these themes
(scarborough, speyside, richmond, charlotteville) are excluded from the
release.

Also some examples are no longer in active development (test,
addressbook). Some of its content should be migrated to the "demo",
before removing them, but this may be done later. They are also excluded
from the release.

Have fun,
