MooTools Core 1.3 beta 2

Written by Christoph Pojer on 4 June 2010 – Posted under all

Over the past couple of weeks we have got a lot of great responses over the initial beta of MooTools Core 1.3. We have since improved both the code and the documentation in order to release a second beta.

Most notably we have removed the dependency on Hash. If you build 1.3 without compatibility you won't get the Hash object no more. But fear not, we have added Object.js which brings you all the Hash methods as generics. Everything else is really minor, has to do with stability or was meant to improve code quality (we really take this seriously).

We are trying hard to provide you with a consistent and meaningful API so we have decided to introduce one tiny tweeny minor breaking change. If you were setting tween, morph, load, or send options using the getter (element.get('tween', {...options here...})) that will not work anymore. You will have to use set(element.set('tween', {...options here...})), as get needs to be a pure getter.

All in all the new beta is faster, better, more stable - in a word - sexier. Tell us how it works for you.


Thanks to everyone who helped polishing the 1.3 release. I would really like to thank Arian Stolwijk (@astolwijk) who has contributed significant improvements to the documentation.
