NowJS Version 0.3 - 3/18/2011
Changes since version 0.2:
Breaks Remote functions can no longer use return values. Please pass in and use a callback parameter when you need a return value from your remote call
Internet Explorer IE6/7/8 are now supported! There is lower performance when changing the value of a variable inside now, but function calls and remote calls (pushing/pulling) is 100% realtime
Performance Improvements since 0.2:
now.js now contains nowUtil.js embedded, reducing number of requests
Static files (now.js) are now cached in memory on the server-side, reducing disk reads
Reduced per request latency; internal replacing of server/port info with actual server/port is now only done once on server startup
Bug fixes since version 0.2:
Safari, IE6/7/8, Android, iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch) Safari now supported. nowUtil.js now contains a minified json2.js shim
Rare instances when not all attributes of now on client side would be initialized is now fixed
Array.isArray replaced with more flexible array check (thanks andref)
Changed uses of
x in yto
Bugs resulting in cross-port setups not working have been fixed
