APEX 5.1 Statement of Direction

David Peake recently announced an updated APEX 5.x Statement of Direction.

Some features haven't made it to the 5.0 release and have been relegated to 5.1 - so they can get them done good & proper.

  • New multi-row edit region type - The more I think about this, the more I look forward to it. I think a lot of developers spend time doing this sort of work
  • Master Detail Detail
  • Tablet UI - shame, I'm working on a tablet project right now
  • Web Services Report
  • PDF Printing - I'm glad they're spending time to get this one right, this will vastly increase the value of APEX
  • Packaged Application - keeps on keeping on

Nothing has slipt in or out since I originally looked at the SOD.

I haven't had a chance to play with the 5.0 EA yet - except open it up briefly thinking "this is very jdevy"
I wonder if any of those features even made it to the EA, or this is an official notification now we're closer to the public release of 5.0?
