It’s time to present to you the BETA version of the new major platform release 7.0.
The new features and API improvements are mostly finished and we are working on bug fixes and documentation. The final release is scheduled for the middle of December.
In the framework, the main area of changes is Generic UI: we have upgraded it to Vaadin 8 and introduced a completely new API for managing screens and working with data on the client. At the same time, your existing codebase will continue to work without any dramatic changes because we took care of backward compatibility.
There are even more changes in Studio. It’s literally a new product built (almost) from scratch as the IntelliJ plugin. CUBA Studio on the IntelliJ platform, without exaggeration, brings developer’s experience to a new level and opens great possibilities for us to improve it further.
Studio BETA is now available as a standalone application for your operating system, see the download links below and the installation instructions.
Later we are also going to publish a plugin that you will be able to install into an existing IntelliJ IDEA (Community or Ultimate).
The platform 7.0.0.BETA artifacts are available in both
Bintray repositories, so you will be able to use them in the new Studio.
Please post bug reports or questions about the BETA version here on the forum with the beta tag.
We are looking forward to your feedback!
