RichFaces 4.5.8.Final is available for download.


In this release we've expanded the use of event handlers -  oncomplete, onerror and status can be defined globally on a4j:queue. Added more commands to keyboard navigation for rich:calendar and fixed a few client-side issues such as row- and columnClasses in rich:extendedDataTable with frozen columns, or keyboard scrolling for pickList and orderingList.


Two things to note:

  1. There seems to be a problem with MyFaces 2.2.8 and navigation rules, though we've only encountered it in our mobile showcase; MyFaces 2.2.7 work fine.
  2. rich:fileUpload on WildFly can garble filenames if they contain special characters, read about it in my earlier blog post.
