script.aculo.us V1.5, first release candidate

September 25th, 2005

It’s done! The first release candidate of the upcoming version 1.5 of script.aculo.us is out.

Get it while it’s hot! :)

Compared to the previous V1.0, it has tons of new stuff for your web apps to look and feel better:

  • In-place Editor control
  • Slider control
  • Completely new effects engine with queuing, delaying (read: timelines) and text effects
  • DOM Builder
  • Drag and drop and sortables with ghosting
  • Sortables can drag and drop between empty lists
  • Unit testing framework
  • script.aculo.us autoloader (script.aculo.us components get loaded automatically, only one JavaScript file has to be included)

There are also tons of bug fixes and little tweaks to make it all the more enjoyable.

A big thank you to all contributors and bug reporters!
