As part of today’s triple release celebrations, script.aculo.us 1.8 is now available for your download pleasure!
What’s in for you (compared to script.aculo.us 1.7):
- Prototype 1.6 final
- 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
- Duration and distance options for Effect.Shake
- Performance improvements
- Tons of bugfixes
To download it, head over to the script.aculo.us site and head for downloads. And all of it is sweetly documented in Christophe’s Book on Prototype and script.aculo.us.
As we head towards script.aculo.us 2.0 (I hope to have a preview release ready soon!), further releases of script.aculo.us 1.x will be bug-fix releases only. If you should stumble upon anything, please follow the directions given on the Prototype contribute page (these instructions are valid for script.aculo.us too).
Last but not least, as always, thanks to the many contributors and the great community!
