The 2016 is just gone, and it was so rich on events for our team, that I decided to recap what happened during it and where it has taken us.
After a number of requests and continuously coming questions on the future development plans of the CUBA Platform and Studio, finally, we are proud to announce that the roadmap is now available to the community.
We are proud to announce the general availability of the new release of the CUBA Platform and Studio!
Perhaps this is one of the most feature-rich platform releases ever - there are important changes on all levels: architecture, extensibility, API usability, and performance.
As you may know, CUBA Platform is all about fast web enterprise applications development - achieving this via a combination of pre-built features, extensive scaffolding and visual UI design. However, development is only one part of the project lifecycle, so the platform team took one step further and provided developers with a fully scalable automatic deployment feature.
Attending conferences we always get to meet highly qualified decision makers, who frequently ask the same question: ‘How open is your framework and what if I need more than you offer out-of-the-box?‘. The question is very reasonable, as they simply don’t want to be stuck right in the middle of the development curve, then realise that the framework just doesn’t allow implementing some features or, likely, if you use open source product, it requires an unpredictably long time to dig deeper to poorly documented parts of the framework.
In this article I will illustrate how you can integrate 3rd party visual components into the CUBA Platform.
It has been a year and several important releases since CUBA Platform was presented to the international developers community, so in this article I would like to provide an updated overview, explaining what value it brings to enterprise software developers.
Readers will learn:
The long-awaited moment has come, and now we are happy to announce that the CUBA Platform has finally joined the free software community! From now on, all the runtime part of the platform is open source and distributed under the Apache 2.0 license. This means that you will be able to create and distribute your applications absolutely for free! So, go ahead and start your CUBA application right now!
In this post, I would like to highlight why and how we have changed the licensing track.
We are proud to announce the general availability of new versions of the CUBA Platform and Studio. The most radical change is licensing - since 6.1 version CUBA is distributed under the Apache 2.0 License. Also, as usual, the new version of the CUBA platform brings in several major new features, along with improvements and bug fixes.
