Improvements and enhancements in UI-Kit-8

Updated on April 5, 2017

The release of UI-Kit-8 includes several improvements and upgrades that provide a foundation for standardizing on common pieces of UI functionality. UI-Kit-8 is now included in the list of built-on applications when you create an application by using the New Application wizard.

UI-Kit-8 included as a built-on application

UI-Kit and UI-Kit-Express are no longer added to the application ruleset list by the New Application wizard. Instead, UI-Kit-8 and UI-Kit-Express are added to the list of built-on applications in the application rule. When you upgrade your application to the latest version of UIKit, include UIKit in the list of built-on applications by opening the application and clicking Add Application in the Built on applications section. In the list of applications, add UIKit. You can also upgrade a Pega Express application in the same way by adding UI-Kit-Express to the list of built-on applications.
