Announcing Lift 2.5-M3
The Lift team proudly announces the availability of the Milestone 3 release of Lift version 2.5.
Lift is the most powerful, secure and mature web framework available today. There are Seven Things that distinguish Lift from other web frameworks.
Lift applications are:
- Secure -- Lift apps are resistant to common vulnerabilities including many of the OWASP Top 10
- Developer centric -- Lift apps are fast to build, concise and easy to maintain
- Scalable -- Lift apps are high performance and scale in the real world to handle insane traffic levels
- Interactive like a desktop app -- Lift's Comet support is unparalleled and Lift's ajax support is super-easy and very secure
Read an overview of how Lift achieves these important goals.
Lift open source software licensed under an Apache 2.0 license.

Make sure you have
value #> is not a member of java.lang.String
- LiftScreen: The FieldTransform API has changed.
If you had something like
, you now need to use:
FieldTransform(() => CssSel)
FieldTransform(BaseField => NodeSeq => NodeSeq)
Don't use defaultXml for template by default
This gives users a better out of the box experience. Override allTemplate to return savedDefaultXml to get the previous behavior.
- jsonCall: You now need to add type information to one of the parameters, for example, if you had:
, you can use the deprecated method that takes Any, as in:
SHtml.jsonCall(JsVar("paramName"), s => sendMessage(s) )._2.cmd
or you can use the new preferred option that uses Lift-json to parse the data, as in :
SHtml.jsonCall(JsVar("paramName"), (s: Any) => sendMessage(s) )._2.cmd
SHtml.jsonCall(JsVar("paramName"), (s: JValue) => sendMessage(s) )._2.cmd
- Modules moved to a new namespace: Please read this post which has details of this breaking change
Please join the Lift Community and enjoy building awesome apps with Lift.
