Today we reached our first train stop in the new Vaadin release model – Vaadin 11. As mentioned earlier, we will release new features to the Vaadin platform every three months, while releasing a long-term support (LTS) version at least once every two years. Vaadin 11 is the first bleeding-edge version, and will be supported for four months. Vaadin 12 is due to be released in 2018-12-05.
Vaadin 11 contains the following new capabilities:
- New Confirm dialog component.
- New Cookie consent component.
- Vaadin Charts 6.1 with a better high-level web component API and a number of fixes due to the updated Highcharts version 6.
- Gradle integration for the Vaadin platform, provided together with our community. Big thank you to John Ahlroos.
All of these components should be compatible with Vaadin 10, even if they are not part of the LTS version.
We are working hard on new features, tools, and components, coming to future Vaadin platform releases. Get a glimpse of what is up on the roadmap page.To get started with Vaadin 11, update your pom.xml to have
