Updated Oct 16, 2012 by


This is the roadmap.

Disclaimer: Please remember that the developers of iUI are volunteers and this roadmap is in no way a commitment that any of these proposed features will ever be completed.

Hey Joe,

You said 0.4 would be beta in October, live in November... I assume this has slipped or is 0.4 available somewhere?



Comment by project member, Dec 8, 2009

Joe didn't say beta in October, I did, but that was 'tentative' as this is a volunteer project. There is a development pre-release of 0.4 available and it is pretty solid (over 3,000 downloads and few complaints). A new development release is coming soon. I've updated the Roadmap to reflect the 'slippage'. -- Sean

I assume this project has been abandoned? I have been hoping for an update since December. Can anyone recommend a good alternative? (Free or fee.)

Comment by project member, Jul 30, 2010

Not abandoned, dude. Check the lists, check the repo. Release coming soon...

Comment by, Jul 31, 2010

I have checked the lists... the OPEN list has looked pretty much the same for seven months now. Looking forward to a new release. Glad to hear work is still being done.

I compare the IUI with JQTouch, Extjs, JQueryMobile, and other thousands of framework. Only IUI work on all platforms, with HIGH performance!!!

really great!

Comment by, Feb 24, 2011 IUI don't have the same features of QTouch, Extjs, JQueryMobile, and other thousands of framework :-) Also, the development seems to stand still for several months

Comment by project member, Feb 24, 2011

We are hard at work on next 0.40dev3 release, in order to get it stable enough for official 0.40. Of course, iUI doesn't compete on feature numbers since there is no point to clone others... we focus on keeping lightest and simpliest as possible to get stuffs done without having to learn JQuery or another API
