Upcoming Version

New features announced here can usually be seen on our Demo Site well before the official release, usually within a few days of the announcement here. For current and past releases, please see News.

We're working on Version 2.6.2:

  • The location of all JavaScript files (<script src= > tags) can now be defined through Site Settings, either at the top or at the bottom of pages. This way we don't have to take sides in the debate which location is better. Placing them at the top of pages minimizes the "Flash of Unformatted Content" effect.
  • New Panels package: Panel module with support for navigation between multiple modules added to the Panel module using tabs or accordion.
  • Simplified Bootstrap Carousel editing.

Additional items will be added as progress is made in their implementation.

2.6.2 will be released in October, 2017. We try to maintain a monthly release cycle if possible.

Not Immediate, Phased In Over Next Few Versions

  • Bower (used just for Kendo UI Core) is being phased out.

Even Longer Term

  • Migrate to VS Code to remove dependency on Visual Studio 2015/2017.
  • netcoreapp support (there are however a few limiting factors from our non-open source use of YetaWF which need to be resolved first).
  • Investigation into replacing Kendo UI as it's too "heavy" and jQuery dependent.
  • Investigation into replacing jQuery UI as it's too "heavy" and jQuery dependent.
  • Use of jQuery Slim and eventually eliminating it altogether.
  • A transition away from jQuery to TypeScript with JSX is underway. As jQuery is an integral part of KendoUI, Bootstrap, jqGrid (and other plugins used by YetaWF), this is not a high priority, but new code will take advantage of these new features.
