Apache MyFaces Core 2.1.0 released
The Apache MyFaces project, which tracks the JavaServer Faces (JSF) specification, has announced the release of its JSF 2.1 implementation: MyFaces Core 2.1.0. Version 2.1 of JavaServer Faces was the second maintenance release of the web framework, following 2009's release of 2.0 which improved ease of use, performance and functionality. MyFaces Core is the foundation for a number of other MyFaces projects such as Trinidad, Tobago and Tomahawk, which all offer different styles of JSF-compliant components.
Only minor changes were made to the specification; similarly, MyFaces Core 2.1.0 sees only small changes. The developers also released 2.0.6, an update to MyFaces Core 2.0, the JSF 2.0 implementation. Both releases include a number of bug fixes and performance improvements.
Both packages have passed the JSR-314/JSF TCK (Technology Compatibility Kit) testing as 100% compliant with the relevant versions of the JSF specification. Binary and source releases of MyFaces 2.1.0 and 2.0.6 are available to download from the MyFaces site with both being released under the Apache Licence 2.0. Release notes with links to the issue tracker are available for 2.1.0 and 2.0.6.
