With 3.8.0 out the door, if you are curious about what’s next head over to the YUI wiki where you can always find the latest details on the future releases. Next up, a release on January 22nd which will either be a patch release for 3.8 or the first 3.9 release, depending on changes & updates planned. Stay tuned for more details.
This week, the team officially launched the YUI Resposive Grid Builder. If you are unfamiliar with the concept of responsive web design it is “an approach to web design in which a site is crafted to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices”. Now, with the YUI Responsive Grid Builder, you can quickly and easily create a layout for your site that will work properly across high resolution desktop browsers all the way down to low-resolution mobile devices. RGB is an open-source project, so we encourage you to check out the source on Github, play with the examples, and review the documentation. An internet high five to Tilo Mitra (@tilomitra) for the development on this project.
Ryan Grove (@yaypie) and the SmugMug team released a TreeView component, which will be available in the Gallery in the coming weeks. It even comes complete with API Docs, a performance stress test, and a YUI TreeView “Shootout”. Nice work!
In this week’s YUI Open Roundtable we demonstrated some of the latest developments with Yeti, discussed mjata.js, and reviewed pull requests #139, #48, and #320. You can find video of that meeting here.
