Do you have a release date?

Thanks,

Sweet! Thank you, Brian!
Posted on 3/25/09 5:14 AM.
Hi,

Could you clarify what you mean by "integrate JPA for Liferay backend services?" For example, would this mean Liferay tables are now accessible as JPA POJOs?
Posted on 4/4/09 12:20 PM.
Currently Liferay uses Hibernate which is pre-JPA specification. We would like to implement a persistence layer than can use JPA standard mechanisms rather than Hibernate for potential deployment on other JPA implementations.

Any upcoming blogs about the new hook features?
Great!
Posted on 5/26/09 2:04 AM.
Thanks. A lot of subject are important for our client needs.
But do you have de release date ?
Posted on 6/8/09 10:59 PM.
What do you mean by "Transistion all UI components over to YUI"? Are you replacing jquery UI?
Posted on 7/8/09 1:05 PM.
I would like to see ;

- Survey / Questionare Manager
- Forms Manager / Form Builder with supporting JBPM workflow
- Employee Directory / People search supporting LDAP or AD ( employee info must created from HR department but employee can update their info based security settings as well )
- Meeting Room Booking
- Show absent employee front of portal ( get employee vacation / absent information from outlook )
- Acronym Manager ( show industry / company related terms and definitions )

in Liferay next major release. Thanks,
Posted on 8/20/09 5:44 AM.
It would be nice to have well-known thread to suggest an discuss possible features and an associated WikiPage to solidify concepts. Is there something like this? It should be a thread that doesn't get lost in the hay.
Posted on 8/27/09 6:53 AM in reply to Oguz Celikdemir.
There is a whole category called "7. Suggestions and Feature Requests" (
http://www.liferay.com/web/guest/community/forums/-/message_boards/category/110­8052). Silly me! The associated WikiPage would still be nice. Is there a simple way to associate resources? Have a link from one resource to others in the same subject. Maybe a "related stuff" portlet?
Posted on 8/27/09 7:05 AM in reply to Hernan Soulages.
We're really looking forward to 5.3, it seems to integrate a lot of bugfixes that are long awaited.

So, are there any concrete plans as to when it'll be released?
Posted on 8/29/09 4:09 AM in reply to Fabrice Clari.
Instead of tasks and contact management, why dont you just integrate with another open source CRM like sugar? Why re invent the wheel??
Posted on 10/20/09 9:02 PM.
Really interesting, looking forward for the new version.
just 2 days back i thought new version might be releasing on new year day
Posted on 10/20/09 11:54 PM.
Aside from dates, what is an actual info about new features if 5.3?
I mean, is this really going to be released?

-Integration with Jasper and/or BIRT
-Ability to schedule reports and deliver via doc lib and email.
-Integrated Workflow (Liferay/Sun)
-Tighter integration of Liferay WCM and Document Lib with JBPM (Liferay)
-Ability to swap JBPM with other engines like Intalio (Liferay)

-CalDAV (Sun)

Posted on 12/1/09 12:52 PM.
Hi,

From above, is the following functionality going to be in the CE open source edition or part of EE?

3. BI / Reporting (Liferay)

1. Integration with Jasper and/or BIRT
2. Ability to schedule reports and deliver via doc lib and email.

Cheers

So when can we use the LR 5.3 CE??????
Posted on 1/6/10 11:42 PM.
Oh interesting , When we can use this version..?
Posted on 1/11/10 12:33 AM in reply to Jignesh Vachhani.
It would be good to have a bit more information on the various points. Is this information already available somewhere? Also I'd also be interested in a new release date. As per this Roadmap it's January, 1st. Since this site is the "official" place to look for it would be great if this could be updated in a reasonable fashion.

Thanks,
Dennis

Brian you are the best!
Posted on 1/13/10 3:12 PM.
As EE customer we would appreciate to get an official statement from Liferay to the release date(s).

Thank you.
Posted on 1/19/10 2:32 AM.
Renamed release from 5.3.0 to 6.0.0
Posted on 1/26/10 4:06 AM.
I don't see any change in this article 5.3 is still 5.3 emoticon

How will "maven 2 artefact publication" will be made ?
I don't see any pom.xml on the trunk ...

Just posting liferay's jars/wars/ears will not really be useful if transitive dependencies are not specified :-(
Posted on 2/12/10 2:58 AM in reply to Jonas Yuan.
Any news about the CE release date?
6.0 CE: 2/16/2010

Will the delay affect the announced EE release date?
6.0 EE: 4/16/2010
Posted on 3/2/10 12:30 AM.
Looks like it did.. emoticon
Posted on 4/17/10 6:17 AM in reply to - Straumann.
Yes unfortunately it did.

Reliability is an important criterion for us and should not only affect the stability of the system but also statements and planning.

We are talking about the EE software we pay for!
Posted on 4/19/10 2:19 AM in reply to Ziggy ©.
Is Oracle still committed to co-developing Liferay ??
Is it one of the reason for the slipping release date ?
Posted on 4/21/10 6:56 AM.
As much as I like Liferay... this article is embarrasing for the project.
Why doesn't it get any updates or at least a single comment from an employee? What about the features that are mentioned are they up to date? I specifically want to know: do we really get CalDAV?
Posted on 5/23/10 3:46 PM in reply to Institut Straumann.
Is there any roadmap update for the Liferay 6 release. We are still in RC1 on 5/24/2010, there is no download available for Liferay IDE and there are no blog entries about any of them.

Posted on 9/6/10 12:42 PM in reply to Aniceto P Madrid.

Google Apps Integration (Liferay) . Does Liferay6 has integration option just like it has done for Facebook
