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, feel free to leave a comment below.
This week saw the release of YUI 3.10PR1, a preview release focusing mostly on low-level performance in Attribute, Base, and EventTarget, and also includes Y.Tree improvements. Also notable, this is also the first release built using Grunt. For all the details about the release, check out the release announcement, as well as the full comparison of changes. For specifics on the performance improvements, take a look at Eric Ferraiuolo’s “YUI 3.10.0 – Go Fast” presentation from last night’s After Hours event.
Last night the YUI Team hosted YUI After Hours at Yahoo!’s Sunnyvale headquarters. Because it’s been a while since YUIConf 2012, the team figured it would be nice to get contributors and the community together for pizza, beer, and presentations. Talks consisted of organization updates from Dav Glass (more on those below), Eric’s 3.10 performance overview, Tilo Mitra (@tilomitra) previewed an upcoming YUI CSS project, Ryan Grove (@yaypie) on Y.Tree and various SmugMug Gallery components, and Luke Smith (@ls_n) on Promises (Y.Promise). You can find a video of the event here. (Apologies for the poor audio quality).
This week’s Open Roundtable discussion (YouTube) featured discussion about the latest ECMAScript meetings, ES6 modules, and pull requests. See Rick Waldron’s (tc39-notes repository) for transcripts of all the ECMAScript meetings.
New and updated Gallery modules include: advanced-date-format, advanced-date-timezone, advanced-number-format, bottle, itsadatetimepicker, itsascrollviewkeynav, list-format, message-format, and yqlmock.
