Upgrading to ICEfaces 3.1.0 will provide several benefits.
1) The "User Session Expired" error reported in
FACES-1171 should be fixed in the icefaces3-ipc-ajax-push-portlet
2) The new ace:textEntry component will make the icefaces3-portlet have uniform looking fields
3) The Chat functionality of the icefaces3-chat-portlet should start working, although there could be an issue with Liferay Portal 6.1.1, as reported in the forums. The newly refactored UI from
FACES-1385 must be tested as well.
4) During the upgrade, it would be nice to fix
FACES-1174 as well so that the icefaces3-documents-portlet starts working properly for file upload.
