A New Name for MooToolsWritten By Valerio Proietti, on Wednesday, April 1st 2009, 12:00am
UPDATE: Sincere thanks to all of you who actually believed this was real news! April Fools’ wouldn’t be as much fun without you.
The MooTools project has been around for quite some time now. We’ve seen a few releases, some great, some less great (1.0). We’ve coded tons of plug-ins, scripts, websites, applications and desktop applications using our beloved MooTools. However, the community is really starting to get tired, tired of this project name. I mean, seriously, we’re really fed up with cows. We even tried to “sell” it as My Object Oriented Tools, but we all know that’s a stretch, and a pretty bad one.
Also, we’re going to remove internet explorer 6 support from in next minor version of jTools. I wish I could tell you more about this decision, but it’s far less important than the groundbreaking name change, so I’ll leave it for another day.
