Liferay Faces Project News - April 2016

The Liferay Faces team has been working hard on a variety of tasks, including:
  • Support for JSF OSGi portlets with Liferay Portal 7.0 CE
  • Maturing the source in our New Git Repositories
  • Finalizing our New Version Scheme
  • Making Liferay Faces Alloy compatible with AlloyUI 3.0
  • Developing the new Liferay Faces Metal component suite based on Metal.js
  • Participating on JSR 362: Portlet Specification 3.0
  • Leading JSR 378: Portlet 3.0 Bridge for JSF 2.2
With the recent release of Liferay Portal 7.0 CE GA1, I thought it would be good to provide details of our plans for supporting JSF OSGi portlets.
