PIE 1.0 beta 1 released

CSS3 PIE version 1.0 beta 1 has been officially released!

Prior to this point, PIE has been developed and tested under the radar, with very few people aware of its existence. With this, the first public beta release, I am confident saying it is ready for widespread use. I would like to thank the private alpha testers who provided valuable feedback over the past couple months and helped get it in shape for public release. Thanks guys, and you are now finally free to shout out to the world about PIE!

Along with this public beta release comes the brand spanking new css3pie.com website complete with documentation, a demos section, info about user/community support, and a slick design (implemented using CSS3 and PIE, of course) courtesy of my wonderful wife Julie. Don’t you just love that logo?

PIE aims to bring CSS3 decoration features into the mainstream, years ahead of schedule, by implementing seamless rendering in Internet Explorer 6-8. By releasing this beta, we hope to get lots of people using it and providing feedback so we can continue to improve and make it a standard tool in the Web development arsenal. Please spread the word!

    Sweet! I am looking forward to impliment this into my new website redesign, as it utilizes a lot of CSS3 techniques like rounded corners, web-kit transitions, and so on…
