I am thrilled to announce the release of CSS3 PIE version 1.0.0!
This release marks a major milestone: the dropping of the “beta” label. Our five beta releases have given us twenty-two months of solid real-world testing as you, the web community, have used it on your sites. You’ve really put it through its paces, given us invaluable feedback and bug reports and helped us squash the bugs, and now we are confident in saying that PIE is solid and reliable enough to no longer be called a beta product.
Compared to beta5, the final version 1.0.0 contains only a few fixes for major issues:
- Fixed divide-by-zero error in box-shadow renderer
- Fixed error when element is removed after hovering
- Fixed error when printing in IE9
- Fixed rendering when using browser zoom in IE7 and 8
In addition, we have added support for two new custom CSS properties:
-pie-track-active — setting these to
false will disable PIE’s default automatic tracking of :hover and :active styles, which can give a small performance boost and prevent issues with scrollbars in IE7 (see issue 190).
See the full changelog for details.
While focusing on stability for 1.0.0, we’ve been very busy with other things too! The master branch in GitHub, which will become the 2.0.x line, has already seen major architectural improvements, several new features, and lots of fixes. We’ll start releasing this cutting-edge code in 2.0 beta releases soon, in parallel with the rock-solid 1.0.x line, so stay tuned!
