I’m pleased to announce that Vaadin Framework 8.2 is now declared stable. The release contains a bunch of enhancements to Binder, Navigator and to several UI components. The upgrade is easy as 8.2 is backward compatible with older 8.X releases, and it is suggested for all Framework users, as it also contains the most recent bug fixes.

To see a more comprehensive list of the new features, refer to the recent  beta release blog post or look into the detailed release notes.

A lot of work was done by you in the community, that has been keeping us busy doing code reviews. Big thanks for all the code contributions and bug reports, keep them coming!

8.3 scheduled for January

We are currently moving towards a process where maintenance releases come out on a fixed schedule. That means we’ll just simply drop features if they are not yet considered stable when the release date comes. Because of that, certain features we would have wished to publish, like HTML5 History based Navigator support for Spring and CDI add-ons, are not yet coming out along with this release. You can though already try HTML5 History based Navigator also with Spring and CDI as those features are already available in alpha releases (vaadin-spring-3.0.0.alpha1, vaadin-cdi-3.0.0.alpha2).

The good thing is that maintenance releases are coming out pretty frequently and this time really fast. The next maintenance release, Vaadin Framework 8.3, is scheduled already for Jan 25th. The plan is to get feature releases out on last Wednesday of the first month of each quarter. If you want to get your favorite enhancement to it, now is the time to start working on it.
