Over at the the YUI blog the team just announced the preview release of YUI 3.2.0. YUI3 now has some interesting new features that the team wants you to try and tell them if they work out for you. The changes to the already very powerful library are quite ambitious:
- Touch event support for mobile interfaces including flick and move gestures
- Browser capability loading – which means that every browser gets the least amount of code necessary to make it work
- An update to the CSS grids to allow for more flexible layouts
- A ScrollView widget similar to the one in Apple iOS
- The uploader has been transitioned over from YUI2 to YUI3
So check out what is on offer and give the YUI team feedback on what would be nice to have and what is broken. In their own words:
The goal of a preview release is to make it as easy as possible for all of us in the community to evaluate progress of the upcoming release and provide feedback. Please take some time to test 3.2.0pr1 and let us know what you find by filing tickets in the YUI 3 bug database marked as “Observed in version” 3.2.0pr1. We’ll do our best to address preview-release questions on the YUI 3 Forums, too.
There are three ways to get started with the preview release: YUI 3.2.0pr1 is available on the CDN via the 3.2.0pr1 version tag — so you can reference preview-release files like
http://yui.yahooapis.com/combo?3.2.0pr1/build/yui/yui-min.js. If you switch to this seed file for the preview release, all subsequent
use() statements will continue to load YUI 3.2.0pr1. Or You can download the full YUI 3.2.0pr1 from YUILibrary.com, including source code and examples for all components. Or you can simply explore the functioning examples roster.
