Monthly Donations: Git and the “Sfora” Foundation

Monday, September 30th, 2013

September is coming to an end in just a couple hours, so it’s high time for me to do the monthly donations.

The open source project that I’m supporting this month needs little introduction, at least to programmers, as it is Git, the extremely popular version control system originally created by Linus Torvalds. I’ve been using it for a couple years now, both for my personal projects and for work, and it’s hard for me to imagine how I could have ever lived without it.

The second of this month’s donations goes to the “Sfora” Foundation in Warsaw, who operates an animal shelter, finds new homes for stray and mistreated dogs, and organizes sterilization campaigns. I already supported them last year, and I’m happy to do it again — thanks to the “Sfora” Foundation crew for their efforts!

ImgAreaSelect 1.0.0-rc.1

Friday, September 27th, 2013

I’m happy to announce that the release candidate for version 1.0 of imgAreaSelect is now available for download on GitHub and jQuery Plugins.

The code has actually been sitting in the repository since August 11th, but there were a few unresolved issues with the test suite on mobile browsers that I had to sort out — and I finally found a window of free time big enough to do that.

Adding support for mobile browsers was the most requested feature, and I’m glad it’s there at last (especially considering how painful it was to develop and test). The plugin was tested to work in Safari on iOS, the stock browser on Android 2.x and 4.x, and the mobile versions of Firefox, Chrome, and Opera on Android 4.x — which I think is good enough to say we have it covered.

This version is still strong in terms of backwards compatibility — while it is intended to be used with jQuery 2.x, it works just as well with jQuery 1.9, 1.8, and 1.7. Hell, it even pretty much works in IE6 — sounds perverted these days, doesn’t it? However, don’t take it for granted that it will stay that way in upcoming 1.x releases, as my plan is to focus on jQuery 2.x and the browsers that it supports.

That’s it for now — before I drop the “rc.1″ part and do a proper 1.0 release, I need to update the plugin homepage and documentation, and generally wrap things up. I also hope to get some early feedback, especially from people using the plugin in mobile web apps, so be my guest and try it out!
