Seam 1.1.6 features several important bugfixes and new features for Seam/Security,
including remember me functionality, integration of JCaptcha, support for automatic
redirects to and from the login page when authorization checks fail and a minor API
redesign. Seam's exception handling facility was totally redesigned, to be much more
robust and work better with Seam/Security. Also, the seam-gen tool now integrates
Seam/Security. This work was all based upon the huge volume of user feedback we
received since the 1.1.5 release.
I just noticed that of the 1630 downloads of Seam since
the release of 1.1.1 on Thursday, only 666 were of Seam 1.1.1. So I must have somehow
fluffed the release announcement. (PST is a horrible timezone for announcing things.)
In Seam 1.1.1 a PDF view is just like any other page in the application: a facelets
template containing EL expressions that bind values from the underlying Seam
components onto the page. So if you already know Seam, producing PDF just involves
learning the new iText-specific tags.
