Description

Motivation and Context

It's caused way too much grief over the years, and I've finally decided it's worth pitching. For those who need it, it's easy to get, especially if you use it through Node or a build system. And for those who are just loading it globally, you have to explicitly specify the version anyways, so you'd be just as golden if you followed it up with a simple inline script that does m.version = "the version you loaded".

Oh, and also, you shouldn't be coding specifically for version numbers, either - it's a known anti-pattern. Instead, you should prefer feature detection and just do the right thing.

How Has This Been Tested?

Types of changes

  • Bug fix (non-breaking change which fixes an issue)
  • New feature (non-breaking change which adds functionality)
  • Breaking change (fix or feature that would cause existing functionality to change)
  • Documentation change

Checklist:

  • My code follows the code style of this project.
  • My change requires a change to the documentation.
  • I have updated the documentation accordingly.
  • I have read the CONTRIBUTING document.
  • I have added tests to cover my changes. (N/A - I'm removing a feature)
  • All new and existing tests passed.
  • I have updated docs/change-log.md
