ICEfaces 1.7.0-DR#2 is now available for download.
ICEfaces v1.7.0-DR#2 is a development milestone build that provides an early-access preview of new features, enhancements, and fixes that will be included in the upcoming ICEfaces v1.7.0 release. This build has been lightly tested and should be considered unsuitable for production use.
New Popup Context Menu
ice:menuPopup component can be associated to any panelGroup component to display a popup context menu when the user clicks the context menu button (typically rt-mouse button) over the panelGroup.
Support for ice:menuPopup is planned to be added to all ICEfaces Component Suite components prior to the 1.7 final release.
New Google Maps Component
ice:gMap component supports display of interactive Google Maps.
Supports additional functionality via the following optional child components:
New Rich Text Editor
ice:inputRichText component provides comprehensive support for editing rich text and HTML content.
Another interesting feature in this release is the integration with GlassFishGrizzly Comet. This integration dramatically improves the scalability of Ajax Push applications (allowing large numbers of users to be handled with a small thread pool rather than a thread for each user). With the rightconfiguration you will be ready to go.
