The Apache MyFaces team is pleased to announce the release of Apache MyFaces Tomahawk 1.1.9.

MyFaces Tomahawk provides a series of JavaServer Faces components that go beyond the JSF specification. These components are compatible with the Sun JSF 1.1 Reference Implementation (RI) or any other JSF 1.1 compatible implementation. Of course the custom components can also be used with the Apache JSF implementation "MyFaces Core".

There are also artifacts (tomahawk12) with enhanced compatibility with JSF 1.2

MyFaces Tomahawk 1.1.9 is available in both binary and source distributions.


MyFaces Tomahawk is also available in the central Maven repository under Group ID "org.apache.myfaces.tomahawk".
