Oracle has released a new version 18.104.22.168, not just and ADF version, it is a new release for all Oracle Fusion Middleware products.
Although this could be seen as a minor release, it comes with lots of new features in ADF Business Components, mainly in REST support, and Data Visualization Tools among others, as well as a lot of bug fixes.
There are many new enhancements to Gauge components, we can now set a title, border and also set the indicator wider that the plot area.
There are some new components, the picto chart.
And the tag cloud. This is a component I have been expecting long time ago as we were able to use it as you can check in this link (Marrying the Worlds of ADF and HTML 5
) but it was not available out of the box.
In ADF Faces there are two more cool enhancements as we can set an af:table to cache fetched rows so there is no need to re-fetch when the user scrolls back, and af:inputDate opens directly on the client instead of going back to the server.
There are more changes and improvements in ADF BC as REST Services, Groovy support and desktop integration.
