Prototype 1.6.1; Speed up, clean up, and team up

Posted by : admin
Filed under : General

Congratulations to Andrew Dupont and Tobie Langel (new official co-lead of Prototype-core) on the new 1.6.1 release:

  • Full compatibility with new browsers. This version of Prototype fully supports versions 1.0 and higher of Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer 8 in both compatibility mode and super-standards mode.

  • Element metadata storage. Easily associate JavaScript key/value pairs with a DOM element. See the blog post that started it off.

  • New mouse events. Internet Explorer’s proprietary “mouseenter” and “mouseleave” events are now available in all browsers.

  • Improved performance and housekeeping. The frequently used Function#bind, String#escapeHTML, and Element#down methods are faster, and Prototype is better at cleaning up after itself.

  • Built with Sprockets. You can now include the Prototype source code repository in your application and use Sprockets for dependency management and distribution.

  • Inline documentation with PDoc. Our API documentation is now stored in the source code with PDoc so it’s easy to send patches or view documentation for a specific version.

See the RC2 blog post, RC3 blog post, and CHANGELOG for more details.

Some nice fixes here. Really excited to see the new Prototype 2.0 work though and how the team reboots Prototype.
