Setting sail.

An exceptionally warm April has made us Finns go outside to enjoy the sun. There's less than two months left until we have 24 consecutive hours of sunlight and people are enjoying it to the fullest. The boats are all set and now it's time to enjoy the archipelago. Sail away for a while, enjoy, and find new ideas.

The Future of Vaadin 7

With Vaadin 7.2 just around the corner, what is going to happen next?

The two largest upcoming enhancements to Vaadin are a new fresh theme and a new more powerful Grid component. But there is life after 7 and we have some preliminary thoughts for Vaadin 8 as well.

Joonas updated the Vaadin roadmap in April and opened some of our future plans in the blog. Read more about it in the Vaadin 7-series blog post.

Tori, the open source Liferay forum

Tori Liferay Forum

If you're running a Liferay installation with LR 6.0 or later, get Tori directly from Liferay Marketplace or GitHub.

Check out what's so special about the Tori forum portlet in the announcement blogpost.
