script.aculo.us 1.5 hits rc5

November 19th, 2005

I’ve just released script.aculo.us 1.5_rc5 which is mostly about refactoring and fixing bugs for the soon-to-be 1.5 final release, but also adds quite a few new features:

  • Drag and Drop now has the ability to snap to a grid (which can also be controlled through a callback for advanced uses)
  • The new Form.Element.DelayedObserver lets you easily build those realtime search boxes (it sends off the AJAX call only after a specific delay has occured since the last keypress in the observed INPUT element)
  • Horizontal ghostable sortables
  • Some additional features for the slider control

As always, there where loads of fixes. See the CHANGELOG for details!

Thanks to all bug hunters and patch submitters!
