As I mentioned in my previous post, this release is about raising our game with respects to web standards, accessibility and progressive enhancement, among other topics. We wrote a set of articles discussing these topics. You can check them out at http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/spry/articles/best_practices/.
In addition, the Spry team spruced up their selector traversal capability with the introduction of the Element Selector utility:
Ah, the sweet Element Selector. Along the lines of jQuery and DOMQuery, the Element Selector (SpryDOMUtils.js) is a utility used for grabbing multiple parts of the page using CSS Selectors and applying functions to them. Our speed is on par with other tools and we have robust and accurate CSS3 support. Read about it here and check it out here.
Finally, the team has created a Spry Updated for Dreamweaver CS3 which will provide extensive support for the Spry framework within Adobe’s editor product. This extension can be download via the Adobe Labs site.
You can download Spry v1.6 from here.
