This week marks the conclusion of the month-long 3.7.0 development cycle. With code frozen, any further changes to 3.7.0 will be minimal, and what you see in Master at the moment should be very close to the final GA release. Next steps are a 2nd preview release (PR) before general availability (GA) of 3.7.0. Stay tuned!
The video from last week’s Open Hours has been posted. Check it out to learn more about some of the new tools Dav has been working on, including Shifter and Yogi, as well as an overview of YUI Target Environments and yui-lint.
Thanks to Luke Smith (ls_n) for the Y.Deferred pull request which could add
Y.Promise, as well as
Y.Color also got a pull request this week. “The Color Utility will give you the ability to convert colors to and from RGB, HSL, and Hex. Color also has several methods that receive one color and return other colors that are harmonious, or adjusted, in a variety of useful ways.”
gallery-devtools is a neat concept, “a set of modules to be loaded in development environments to increase the noise level of YUI around certain common mistakes that should be detectable but aren’t exception causing.”
YUI Masonry is a dynamic layout widget for YUI that was inspired by Pinterest and Masonry.
FYI: JSFiddle.net now supports YUI 3.6.0.
