Caution!

Here you will find points of caution when updating Sugar to a new version. Think of it as a pruned Changelog with the most front-facing changes surfaced. If your code breaks on update check here first!

Read all the ones that are greater than the version you are migrating from.

v1.3.7+

  • Level: Major

    • String#startsWith and String#endsWith now accept different arguments to better align them with the Harmony proposal of the same name. The second argument is now the "position" that limits where the string starts/ends, and the "case" flag indicating case sensitivity is now pushed to the 3rd argument.
  • Level: Major

    • Enumerable object methods are now included when using Object.extend() making it that much more dangerous, especially as generic methods like count are now defined on the Object prototype. If you use this method, make sure you are in the habit of using hasOwnProperty when checking for presence inside a hash (probably not a bad idea anyway). Also note that Sugar itself has a number of areas that may exhibit unexpected behavior when this method is applied. Please report if you find any.
  • Level: Moderate

    • Aliases on dates such as daysAgo will now count "past" an integer instead of rounding. This means that Date.create('23 hours ago').daysAgo() will now be 0. There is however a small margin of error (roughly 0.1%) that will trigger a round up, which is higher for months, which have a more vague definition and a higher margin for error.

v1.3.6+

  • Level: Very Minor

    • Float values should be properly parsed in Object.fromQueryString, meaning IP addresses and the like will now parse as strings instead of truncated numbers.
  • Level: Very Minor

    • NaN is no longer true for isOdd.
  • Level: Very Minor

    • Date parsing now only allows a maximum of 59 for minutes and seconds.

v1.3.5+

  • Level: Very Minor
    • Array.create now properly creates arrays from objects.

v1.3.2+

  • Level: Minor
    • Date.create will no longer set the UTC flag on dates created from an ISO string with the "Z" flag. This can be considered a bug introduced in the last release. The "Z" flag indicates that a date is in UTC time, but should not serve as an indication that the date should further be manipulated as UTC, only as a cue when parsing. If you want the date to actually behave as UTC (internally call UTC methods), then you need to explicitly set with Date#utc(true) now.

v1.3.1+

  • Level: Major

    • Array methods that allow fuzzy matching on an object (findAll, filter, some, etc.) as well as unique, intersect, union, and subtract, will now match by reference unless certain conditions are met. Most notably this means that arrays of functions as well as arrays of host objects (DOM elements, etc.) will now only match elements that are strictly true by reference (===). If you are using arrays of host objects or functions (event handlers and the like), use caution upgrading. Other kinds of arrays such as primitives (strings, numbers, etc) as well as object literals and instances of user-defined objects should not be affected.
  • Level: Major

    • Date#toUTC deprecated. Previously, this method would subtract the timezone offset of the date, providing a pseudo-utc date. This was a very primitive way of handling the challenge of manipulating utc dates and had drawbacks such as subsequent date manipulations resetting to a localized time. This is now deprecated in favor of Date#utc, which simply sets an internal flag that will tell Sugar to use utc-based date methods or not. Date#utc will NOT manipulate the time in any way. To create a utc-based date that is set to utc time, a flag has been added to Date#create, and other creation methods like Date#future and Date#past to set the utc flag before parsing out the date.
  • Level: Major

    • Date#setUTC deprecated. Instead, simply set the utc flag using Date#utc or passing true as the third argument to Date#create. After this point, utc-based methods will be used internally, making this method unnecessary.
  • Level: Major

    • Date#setUTCWeek deprecated. Set the utc flag and use Date#setWeek instead.
  • Level: Major

    • Date#getUTCWeek deprecated. Set the utc flag and use Date#getWeek instead.
  • Level: Major

    • Date#setUTCWeekday deprecated. Set the utc flag and use Date#setWeekday instead.
  • Level: Minor

    • Date#clone will now preserve the utc flag.
  • Level: Minor

    • Array methods matching an empty object {} will now return true instead of false against another empty object.
  • Level: Very Minor

    • Date#setWeekday now returns a timestamp instead of undefined.

v1.3+

  • Level: Major

    • Date locales are now moved into a separate package. This means that now with the default download package, setting the date locale to anything other than English will throw an error. If you require locales other than English, please include them from the customize page.
  • Level: Major

    • Array#min, Array#max, Array#least, and Array#most now return a single value instead of an array. If you need to get "all min" or "all max" values, then pass true as the second argument to these methods.
  • Level: Major

    • Array#has is deprecated. Use Array#some or Array#any instead.
  • Level: Major

    • String#toDate is deprecated. Use Date.create instead.
  • Level: Major

    • String#add, String#insert, Array#add, and Array#insert now consider negative indexes to be the same as built-in Array#slice. This means that adding 'd' to 'abc' at index -1 now results in 'abdc' instead of 'abcd'.
  • Level: Major

    • Date parsing is now scoped by locale. Previously setting a locale would add all its formats into a common pool that would match from that point on. Now the locale must be either be set beforehand Date.setLocale('fr') or explicitly passed Date.create('...', 'fr'). The exception to this are numeric formats which are core formats and will parse in any locale.
  • Level: Minor

    • Extended objects that are otherwise identical to non-extended counterparts are now considered equal by Object.equal.
  • Level: Minor

    • Object.isEmpty will now error when passed a non-object. This includes object versions of primitives like strings, numbers, and booleans.
  • Level: Minor

    • Default date output format date.format() now includes the time. Previously this was just the date.
  • Level: Minor

    • Array#groupBy no longer returns extended objects. Use Object.extended on the result if you need this.
  • Level: Minor

    • Unrecognized locale codes will now simply produce an invalid date instead of throwing an error. Likewise, fully qualified locale codes ('it_IT') will fall back to 2 character codes ('it') before giving up.
  • Level: Very Minor

    • Array methods using fuzzy matching (findAll, remove, etc.) now match instances of classes as well as plain objects.
  • Level: Very Minor

    • String#capitalize with the first argument as true (capitalize all words) will now capitalize any letter whose previous letter could not be capitalized. Previously only words after spaces were counted.

v1.2.5+

  • Level: Major

    • String#truncate arguments changed. ellipsis ("..." by default) is now the last argument of four. Second argument is now split which is true by default, so the method will behave like standard truncate methods by default. from added as the third parameter and determines where to truncate. Can be "right" (default), "left", or "middle".
  • Level: Major

    • Function#debounce no longer has an argument wait. Equivalent function is now Function#throttle (no arguments). fn.debounce(100, false) is now fn.throttle(100).
  • Level: Minor

    • Object.isObject now returns true for extended objects.

v1.2.4+

  • Level: Minor

    • Object.equal and its instance method form "equals" is now considered "egal". This means that, for example, new String('w') will NOT be equal to 'w', etc. Previously equal was nearly egal, but not quite, so this should only affect very small edge cases. This now means that Sugar will match Underscore's _.isEqual method 100% of the time with the only exception being custom "isEqual" methods that Underscore checks explicitly.
  • Level: Very Minor

    • Object.merge will now merge properties of non-objects like functions.

v1.2.3+

  • Level: Major

    • String#compare, Number#compare, and Date#compare are deprecated
  • Level: Major

    • Object.merge params are swapped. resolve is now the 4th parameter and deep is now 3rd.
    • When using extended objects, this are now 2nd and 3rd parameters. deep is now false by default.
  • Level: Minor

    • Array#sortBy now exhibits more sensible behavior when sorting on strings.

v1.2.2+

  • Level: Very Minor
    • Extended objects now keep their "Hash" constructor (which is internal) so they no longer have Object as their constructor. If you are doing instanceof checks here this may break (which you shouldn't be doing anyway)

v1.2+

  • Level: Major

    • Array methods now use "fuzzy object matching" when passing an object. As an example, arr.find({ foo: 'bar' }) would previously only match an identical object, now it will match any object whose foo property is bar. Additionally, note that passing regexes and functions will be used to match (regexes match against strings, functions are callbacks that return true/false), not compared directly. This applies to the following array methods: every, some, filter, find, findAll, findIndex, remove, none, count, and exclude.
  • Level: Major

    • Object.sugar renamed to Object.restore. However Object.sugar() equivalent is now Object.extend().
  • Level: Minor

    • Object.merge now also merges undefined properties.

v1.1.2+

  • Level: Minor

    • Function#after will now call a method immediately if the passed value is 0.
  • Level: Very minor

    • Object.isEmpty will now properly report false for primitive types like null and empty strings.

v1.1.1+

  • Level: Major

    • Object.merge no longer merges an arbitrary number of arguments. Use extended objects and chaining instead.
  • Level: Minor

    • Array#remove and Array#exclude now no longer accept an arbitrary number of arguments. Pass only 1 argument to these methods (may be a nested array).

v1.1+

  • Level: Major

    • Object.equals renamed to Object.equal.
  • Level: Major

    • Number#format "thousands" and "decimal" parameters are now pushed to the 2nd and 3rd parameters, adding a "place" for the decimal as the 1st.
  • Level: Minor

    • A few tokens were removed from Date#format. See sugarjs.com/dates for a list of currently accepted tokens.
  • Level: Minor

    • Function#lazy now executes, then waits as opposed to waiting, then executing.
  • Level: Minor

    • Array#sortBy is now no longer destructive, so you will need to set the variable explicitly.

v1.0+

  • Level: Major

    • String#normalize is removed, but now available in the Inflections module, available at sugarjs.com/customize.
  • Level: Major

    • String#is/hasArmenian, is/hasBopomofo, is/hasEthiopic, and is/hasGeorgian deprecated.
  • Level: Minor

    • Passing a second parameter to Date#set now no longer resets only the time, but also any unit less specific than the most specific one set. So if the object { hours: 5 } is passed with the second parameter true, minutes, seconds, and milliseconds will be reset.
  • Level: Minor

    • Passing "relative" as the format to Date#format is now deprecated, and instead Date#relative.
  • Level: Minor

    • Date.allowVariant deprecated in favor of the locale system. Any locale that is not 'en' or 'en-US' will use variants when ambiguities exist.
  • Level: Very minor

    • Date#format token suffixes " short", and " pad" deprecated.
  • Level: Very minor

    • When passing a function to Date#format or Date#relative, the "dir" parameter is now deprecated. Instead the milliseconds argument has a sign directly on it.

v0.9.5+

  • Level: Major

    • Array#split deprecated.
  • Level: Major

    • String#toObject is now Object.fromQueryString.
  • Level: Major

    • Function.lazy is now Function#lazy and is called directly on function instances.
  • Level: Major

    • Function#defer is now simply Function#delay with no arguments.
  • Level: Moderate

    • Object.clone is now shallow by default.

v0.9.3+

  • Level: Major

    • Array#each is no longer an alias of Array#forEach and now has its own behavior including a 2nd parameter for the start index, 3rd parameter for looping from the beginning, returning the array, allowing returning false to break the loop, passing the array as scope to the callback, and support for sparse arrays.
  • Level: Major

    • Array#eachFromIndex deprecated.
  • Level: Major

    • Array#removeAtIndex renamed to Array#removeAt.
  • Level: Major

    • Array#collect deprecated.
  • Level: Major

    • Array#shuffle deprecated.
  • Level: Major

    • String#titleize deprecated. It is now available again as of v1.2 in the Inflections module, available at sugarjs.com/customize.
  • Level: Major

    • String#pad/padLeft/padRight changed argument order to padding first and number second.
  • Level: Moderate

    • Array#indexOf/lastIndexOf now performs a simple === equality check instead of a deep recursive property check.
  • Level: Minor

    • String#repeat will now return a blank string on numbers less than 1.
  • Level: Minor

    • String#dasherize and String#underscore now strip whitespace.

v0.9.1+

  • Level: Major
    • Object.create changed to Object.extended.
