Developer Announcements

Marketplace Developer Portal Moving to New Liferay Developer Network
The Marketplace Developer Portal will be moving into a bigger and better home! Over the next several months, we'll be transitioning content over to the new Liferay Developer Network (LDN), which will be the definitive site for all things related to Liferay development. Once the transition is complete, you'll find all content related to Marketplace app publishing in the "Distribute" section of the new LDN.

You can check out the beta version of LDN, where we've already started to transition some of our content. We'll keep you posted on progress and let you know when our move is complete. Thanks again for being an important member of the Liferay community!

Marketplace App Contest Winners Announced!
Congratulations to the winners! Thank you, community members, developers, and partners, for making this year's app contest another successful one.

This year, with the introduction of paid apps, we judged across two different dimensions: commercial/non-commercial and free/paid, which resulted in 4 different categories and 4 grand prize winners (and 4 runners up). Apps were judged for their creativity and usefulness, ease of installation/setup, user interface, user experience, Liferay integration, and completeness of solution.

Check out the winning apps here!

Right to Left Language Support App Available!
A lot of people have asked for it - and it's now available in the Liferay Marketplace. Liferay's Right to Left Language Support is a Liferay app that automatically adapts Liferay Portal styles for right-to-left (RTL) languages. While Liferay Portal supports RTL languages out-of-the-box, certain page elements still may not render properly. Just deploy the RTL Hook to correct this. You can also use the RTL Hook to provide support for RTL languages in your own apps.

Both EE and CE versions of the app are available.

2014 Marketplace App Contest
It's back! To celebrate and reward our outstanding community of Marketplace developers, I am happy to announce the opening of the 2014 Liferay Marketplace App Contest! Last year, we had over 70 submissions and many winners (so many that we had to extend the review period an extra week). We saw some really great and innovative apps, and also saw a nice bump in Marketplace activity in general. Last year's winners saw an average of 7x increase in downloads and 2000+ views! So while the prizes are nice, the increased visibility (and bragging rights) are even sweeter. So we're doing it again. Check out the official contest page (and official rules) for more details.
Marketplace E-commerce Has Arrived
Since launching in 2012, Liferay Marketplace has seen some great growth, multiplying almost 5x in number of apps and registering more than 600 developers in over 25 countries.
We're very excited about this next chapter of Liferay Marketplace, which will enable the sale and purchase of paid apps. E-commerce is the crucial next step to our efforts to bring valuable apps to Liferay users while empowering our community of partners and developers.
You can get more details in this blog. We look forward to your continued participation in Liferay Marketplace!
Liferay Marketplace Developer Portal Launched!
We've officially launched the Marketplace Developer Portal! We hope to make this your one-stop destination for all information and latest news related to the Liferay Marketplace. Familiarize yourself with our App QA/Review Process or get a jump on e-commerce by learning about paid app pricing or by reviewing the Developer Forum.
Paid App Developer Fee Waived for 2014
To kick-off the launch of Marketplace e-commerce, Liferay is waiving the $99 paid app developer fee until the end of 2014! This is the perfect opportunity to upload that app you've been polishing or multiply the exposure of your existing apps.
New Role/Permission Mechanism in Developer App Manager
We've implemented a new "User Manager" interface that allows Developer Companies to specify roles for its members. If you can no longer access the App Manager, the issue may be related to the new role/permissioning feature. Please see the section titled "Why can I no longer access my App Manager?" in the Developer FAQs.
