script.aculo.us 1.8 preview

October 12th, 2007

What’s in for you (compared to script.aculo.us 1.7):

  • Prototype 1.6 (lastest trunk version)
  • Complete rewrite of Ajax.InPlaceEditor and Ajax.InPlaceCollectionEditor
  • Full CSS inheritance in Effect.Morph
  • New core effect: Effect.Tween
  • Sound: play mp3 files for sound effects; uses native playback on IE and available plugins whereever possible
  • Performance improvements
  • Tons of bugfixes

As always, you’ll find more detailed information in the CHANGELOG.

Note that script.aculo.us 1.8 will mark a feature freeze and only bugfixes will be applied to the 1.x branch of script.aculo.us in the future. script.aculo.us 2.0 is basically a complete rewrite to make things more awesometastic, but I’m getting ahead of myself now—expect something in the near future. :)

Download it over at the script.aculo.us site, 196k zip file.
