Jonathan has also posted about this release over on the Yahoo! Developer Network Blog.
Reid Burke from the YAP team will be giving a tech talk on using YUI in YAP today at YUICONF 2009; if you’re at the conference, be sure to catch Reid’s session. If not, keep an eye out here for that talk when it appears on YUI Theater.
