We only realize that time flies when we are on the last month of the calendar. While many of us are preparing for the Christmas and New Year vacations already, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you thank you for your support, commitment and all the contribution you have made to the growth of ZK. For example, one of our active contributors, Filip Cossaer, had First Lesson to ZK Framework and a series of online workshop sessions for all users. This year wouldn’t have been so prosperous without your continuous support. 


We’ve introduced ZK 8 in the late 2015, and this year we continued to enhance ZK with a more powerful solution that combines the strengths of both client and server sides, such as Shadow Elements and MVVM. We also assisted many users to upgrade their web applications to ZK 8, some were even from ZK 5 🙂 A Fortune 500 financial company had also upgraded successfully their web application from ZK 6.5 to ZK 8 recently. With this upgrade, they can now leverage ZK 8’s easier responsive design and new MVVM architecture. 


In 2017, we are looking forward to major releases for both ZK and ZK Spreadsheet, which will continue to boost your productivity and improve your experience with us. For ZK, we will follow ZK 8 theme to embrace innovative JavaScript and HTML5 technologies effortlessly. Integration with JavaScript Frameworks such as React and Angular with less effort and more modern look and feel are some of the goals we have in mind. For example, we will introduce Fragment component and a more modern theme is also on its way. 


In addition, ZK Spreadsheet with brand new architecture will also be released next year, and we believe it is going to be the fastest Web spreadsheet on Earth! It will benefit spreadsheet users with huge data as the back-end technology will not be limited to Java.


We would love to hear from you, so if you have any advice and/or suggestions, please do not hesitate to let us know! Stay tuned, more will be coming in 2017 😀
