We also want to thank our two Summer Interns Patrick Jameson and Rashad Russell for all their hard work these past few months. They’ve been a great help in testing and debugging issues for this release.

There were a total of 255 commits for this release by 24 contributors. You can read all about the details in the Change History Rollup and compare it on GitHub with YUI 3.11.0. We are always seeking ways to make our releases better, whether it’s improved CI (almost 9,000 tests per target environment) , better release processes (our new release branch keeps the main branches open all the time now), or more community involvement. Please file an issue if you find something we can improve!
