ImgAreaSelect 0.9

Monday, July 20th, 2009

I finally found enough time to finish developing the new version of imgAreaSelect, and I’m happy to announce it’s available for download.

This release brings a few major changes and new features — here’s a summary:

  • Styling the plugin is now done with CSS (the old styling options are still supported)
  • A new option has been added to show/hide the plugin with a fade effect
  • A new option has been added to get an instance of the plugin’s object
  • Some of the plugin’s methods have been made public and can be called through the instance
  • A new callback function has been introduced (onInit)

Implementing and testing the new features took me about one third of the total time I worked on this version, I spent the rest cleaning up and refactoring the code. As a result, although the new version has many new features, it’s actually a bit smaller that the previous release (0.8). The packed JavaScript file (included in the distribution package) is less than 8KB in size.

The plugin’s project page has also undergone some face lift and reorganization. The documentation is now on a separate page, and there’s a new examples page (at this moment, only three examples are included, but I will be adding more soon, I promise).

There is also a special bonus for all the people who want to modify the plugin’s source code and implement their own solutions based on it — I have made available an extensively commented version of the source code.
