Last month, in time for the Polymer 2 release, we announced pre-releases of all our Core Elements with Polymer 2 support. We're happy to say that we've now finalized the upgrade work and all Elements ship with Polymer 2 support. The updated elements are now easier to use with any framework as they do not require special syntax for doing things like DOM manipulation.

Work on the theme support we previewed in the last update is also progressing nicely. The first pre release sets up theme basics like colors, spacing, and alignment. It includes Valo and Material design implementations for vaadin-button, vaadin-checkbox, and vaadin-input. You can browse the work in progress demos here. Note that we're still hard at work and many things may still change.

We are also continuously working on expanding the component set as outlined in the previous post, focusing on the following components in the short term:

  • Text area
  • List box
  • Dialog
  • Dropdown menu
  • Menu button
  • Details
  • Tabs
  • Progress
  • Checkbox
  • Radio button

As always, we'll keep you posted on updates as we publish new things. In the meantime, go and check out all our components at
