After a long cold winter, we are happy to jump into Spring with the twelfth XPages Extension Library release for Notes/Domino 9.0.1. Just like the daffodils, tulips and other early bloomers in your garden, this ExtLib release represents new growth that will bring a smile to your face.

In this new release of the XPages Extension Library, some new controls and a new configuration for the Application Layout control have been added to the Bootstrap plugin. The new Carousel, Dashboard, and Navbar controls further enhance the Responsive tool set available to XPages application developers. The Simple Responsive Application Layout Configuration has more of a focus on responsive capabilities, and is designed to be quick and easy to configure whilst still providing plenty of functionality. To help you understand how you can benefit from these new features, we are including a new demonstration application named "ToDo.nsf."  This application lets you do straight-forward ToDo task tracking but has been designed using all of the latest responsive & Bootstrap features provided with the ExtLib. It specifically uses a Bootstrap theme, glyphicons, jQuery, and the new XPages Bootstrap controls.

Building on the community contribution model introduced late in 2014, this release includes community developed enhancements and fixes from the XPagesExtensionLibrary project on GitHub. The result is an improved Value Picker control, a new Simple Action for showing and hiding In Place Form controls, and improved OneUIV302 rendering. The Domino Designer tooling has also had some bug fixes applied based on defects reported through the community.

We hope the developer community finds the latest XPages Extension Library release to be a useful tool for growing new applications!
