MooTools More

Written By Aaron Newton, on Tuesday, May 5th 2009, 5:51pm

Today we’re releasing a small update to MooTools More that address a few bugs and minor feature requests that cropped up after the initial launch. Briefly, these are the things changed since

  • Removed debug statement that enabled IframeShim in all browsers by default
  • Fixed a few docs typos
  • Removed UTF-8 charset signature on String.QueryString and URI.Relative
  • Assets.image now have an onError option and handle image load failure more gracefully
  • FormValidator.Inline had issues displaying some of it’s validators when input values changed
  • OverText now allows you to specify the element type for the label test (defaults to “label”)
  • Fixed an issue with addRequests in Request.Queue; the arguments were reversed (addQueue still worked fine though)

None of these changes should affect your usage of the class, except, possibly, the change to OverText, as the element it previously created for the labels was a div. If you styled these with css and referenced the tag name, you’ll either need to update your css reference or pass in element: “div” as an option when you invoke the class.

I know, sometimes when you look at the source code of MooTools you ask yourself, “How could this possibly be any better? Because it’s so awesome.” I am by and large always stumped by this question, as the code is so meticulously maintained by its authors.

Today, I have an answer. The only way to give you a better MooTools is to give you more of it. It’s that awesome. Today, we’re making MooTools awesomer.

We give you the new and improved MooTools More - the official plugin collection for MooTools. The plugins we are releasing today take the fifteen files previously in MooTools More and triple them. That’s three times the awesome!
