PeopleTools 8.54 is GA!

On Friday the PeopleTools blog announced that PeopleTools 8.54 is now Generally Available (GA). PeopleTools 8.54 brings several usability features including responsive design for mobile devices as well as development features such as Mobile Application Platform (MAP). One of my favorite new features is component specific branding. You can now attach stylesheets and JavaScript to components as described in PeopleBooks Applying Branding to Other Objects. Another great branding enhancement is Attribute-based branding. This is very similar to role based branding, but more flexible and easier to administer. You can read about it in the PeopleBooks entry Administering System Branding.

To learn more read the PeopleTools announcement or visit the hosted 8.54 PeopleBooks. I can't wait for the new demo images!

Hi Jim,

Our understanding is that in order to upgrade to PeopleTools 8.54 we need 8.54.02 since this patch will include the necessary CA scripts for the upgrade. Can you confirm this is true, and if so do you know when 8.54.02 would be available ?

@Lewis, unfortunately I do not have dates for the upgrade.
