The new ZK 8.5
takes the best of ZK 8 and continues to push the innovation envelope. A major improvement on MVVM data binding at the client side
enlivened pure HTML content with minimal effort. The Fragment
component, in combination with Service workers
, allows for caching and managing offline user data and easier Progressive Web Apps
(PWAs) building. It also enables more accurate control on the client side, such as mouse cursor position, pressed keys, and entered and selected text.
In addition, 24 freshly baked modern themes take your application to the next level and provide a variety of choices that match different business needs. You can also include multiple themes in a same application to provide personalized experience for your end users. The built-in WebSocket improves the server push performance and serves as a great tool for analyzing big data in the most efficient way. Other advancements include the introduction of a splitlayout component, an enhanced frozen component, stacked fontawesome support (thanks to user “szediwy”), HTML5 browser history management support, source map for WPD debugging, and much more.
I’m very interested in the new 24 themes, is there any documents about this, can I integrate them transparently, I mean just have new jars in project?
Glad to hear that. Yes basically it is about dropping in the desired theme jars.
Related document will be available along with the release next week. Stay tuned!
Back to some years ago, when I had to choose a technology to build our own flagship product on, I opted for ZK among several more renowned (at that time) alternatives.
When I talk to people and I mention ZK, very few know it, but I am really glad to confirm I did the right move.
Zkoss team continuously improves ZK in features, robustness and flexibility, keeping it up-to-date to new technologies and trends.
Eager to attend the webinar about 8.5 and to try the new features.
ZK and ZK charts and Calendars are all amazing, in a class by itself.
Thanks Will & Vincent, your encouraging words means a lot to us!
The WebSocket is on the CE?
No WebSocket is only available in EE, you can check out the following link for more information: https://goo.gl/iQDeR8

That’s what I said to others. It will make it easier for non-web developer to develop web applications using ZK.
Great work! Completely agree with Will. I’m using ZK since 3 version and never regret it. Nevermind if the application is desktop like, or flat web page like, ZK theming or CSS styling fits smoothly.
Thanks Will, LiuYan and Lluis for your support and encouragement, we are glad to have you along the journey and we hope to continue being innovative!
