The new 6.4 release of CUBA Platform and CUBA Studio has recently been published. Whilst version 6.3 focused on architectural and technical improvements, this new release is designed to enable faster development and introduces a range of convenient functionality for the user. The new version brings new visual components for the generic user interface, a new mainstream validation mechanism, an engine for an alternative JavaScript front-end generation and other important improvements.

This article covers major enhancements of Platform and Studio. The full list of changes is available in the corresponding release notes:


With 2016 being such a busy year for the CUBA team, I decided to recap our journey through the year and the key milestones.

Obviously, the greatest  - and very challenging change —  was taking CUBA open source in April. Now the platform is absolutely free and distributed under Apache 2.0 - with no runtime restrictions on CUBA applications. Our goal was to free up applications built with CUBA from any license restrictions: we had concerns that the previous license was discouraging too many developers from trying the framework.
