OmniFaces 3.11 released!

OmniFaces 3.11 has been released!

Nothing shocking. Just one new utility method and a small handful improvements/fixes. It's been more than 2 months since previous release, so it's about time for a new release even if it's relatively minor.

You can find the complete list of additions, changes and fixes at What's new in OmniFaces 3.11? list in showcase.

Installation

Non-Maven users: download OmniFaces 3.11 JAR and drop it in /WEB-INF/lib the usual way, replacing the older version if any.

Maven users: use <version>3.11</version>.

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.omnifaces</groupId>
    <artifactId>omnifaces</artifactId>
    <version>3.11</version>
</dependency>

If you're already on Jakarta EE 9 (e.g. WildFly 22, OpenLiberty 21, etc), then use 4.0-M8 instead. It's the Jakartified version of 3.11.

How about OmniFaces 2.x and 1.1x?

The 2.x got the same bugfixes as 3.11 and has been released as 2.7.11. This version is for JSF 2.2 users with CDI. In case you've already migrated to JSF 2.3, use 3.x instead.

The 1.1x is basically already since 2.5 in maintenance mode. I.e. only critical bugfix versions will be released. It's currently still at 1.14.1 (May 2017), featuring the same features as OmniFaces 2.4, but without any JSF 2.2 and CDI things and therefore compatible with CDI-less JSF 2.0/2.1.
