What’s New in Guideline Version 1.60


This article provides an overview of the topics that have been added or changed with the guideline version 1.60.

With each new guideline version, we deliver two types of update:

  • Updates to reflect new or changed UI controls available with the corresponding SAPUI5 version (SAPUI5 Version 1.60).
  • Ongoing updates on how to best apply the SAP Fiori design (such as overarching concepts, floorplans, and additional decision support). These updates are introduced with a given guideline version, but are not necessarily dependent on a specific SAPUI5 version.

Note: Our policy is to update only the latest guideline version. If you are working with an earlier SAPUI5 release, also consider checking out the most recent guideline version to get the latest general guidance.



A new semantic color has been added for the “information” value state.
