Announcing Lift 2.6 M4
The Lift team proudly announces the availability of Milestone 4 of Lift version 2.6.
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
- Modular -- Lift apps can benefit from, easy to integrate, pre built modules
- Designer friendly -- Lift apps can be developed in a totally designer friendly way
Read an overview of how Lift achieves these important goals.

ResponseShortcutExceptions with redirect responses by sending an appropriate
RedirectTocommand to the client. This means that e.g.
S.redirectTowill work as expected in a
CometActor. Note that this is implemented in the default
CometActor, so if you've overridden it you'll need to make sure that the default handler is something you eventually invoke.
- Added the ability to get a forced version of a request body as JSON or XML,
regardless of whether the specified
Content-Typeof the request was correct. These are

Failurewith descriptive error message if

savewith no parameters was an unsafe save, which can be achieved using
