Welcome to YUI Weekly, the weekly roundup of news and announcements from the YUI team and community. If you have any interesting demos or links you’d like to share, leave a comment below.
This week saw two releases of YUI. 3.8.1 was released as a 3.8 patch for iOS6 compatability improvements in addition to updates for DataTable, Attribute, and Template. The second release this week was 3.9.0pr2, a follow-up preview release to last week’s 3.9.0pr1. Jenny also posted some details about our release process policy on the mailing list. Happy upgrading!
A huge thanks and welcome to YUI’s newest external contributor, Joey Smith, who offered to take over management of the YUI Compressor project.
As you may have seen from his Future of YUI CSS talk at YUIConf, Jeff Conniff has been working on a Skin Builder app for YUI. While the project is not yet complete, you can checkout this preview in the meantime. Very cool!
Two Hangouts were held this week. First up was the weekly Open Roundtable which included discussions about the YUI release process, YUI Compressor ownership, and pull requests. Luke Smith also hosted a follow-up Hangout for his Data Binding, Take Two pull request.
