Looking back at the first release, back in October 2010, Zepto has come a long way. It’s now compatible with all modern browsers (except Internet Explorer, and yes, it’s easy to fall back to jQuery) and supports complex frameworks like Twitter Bootstrap.
Notable additions and changes in V1.0
- Zepto is now compatible with Twitter Bootstrap
- Portable, completely new node.js-based build system
- Fully automated tests with PhantomJS and Travis CI
- Removed touch module from default distribution (you can add with our easy-to-use build system, or just load it in addition)
There’s many more additions and bug fixes—see the detailed change log on the Zepto site.
We’re already planning V1.1, for which we will look mostly into code refinements and performance improvements (Zepto is already pretty speedy, as it keeps the loading and parsing time of your site low, especially on mobile devices).
Super-special thanks to all our contributors. You’re the best! 🙂Tweet
