The Skin Builder preview has some new features:
gallery-scrollanim is a widget that animates HTML elements based on vertical page scroll, and is new to the YUI Gallery this week. “With ScrollAnim widget, you can quickly create sites that have various HTML elements move or fade according to how far the user has scrolled down the site. The animation for each HTML element is also gracefully controlled by easing functions of your choosing. Also the widget is great for achieving the popular “parallax effects”, when certain elements (especially the backgrounds) move at a different speed than the user-controlled scrolling speed.” Thanks @emyang!
