  I know, I know, I've neglected this library for far too long, so lets get it back on track...

    ADD: Promise based async transitions
    ADD: conditional transitions
    ADD: observable transitions 
    ADD: composable state machines
    ADD: better introspection
    ADD: undo/redo history
    ADD: use camel casing for callback/observer methods (instead of all lower case)

Version 2.4.0 (November 20 2016)

  • added npm install instructions to readme
  • fix for javascript error when running in jasmine/node (issue #88)
  • exclude build files from bower install (pull request #75)
  • ensure WILDCARD events are included in list of available transitions() (issue #93)
  • fix FSM getting stuck into "*" state when using double wildcard (issue #64)
  • function (fsm.states) returning list of all available states in the machine would help automated testing (issue #54)
  • state machine hides callback exceptions (issue #62)
  • replaced (dev dependency) YUI compressor with uglify-js for building minified version

Version 2.3.5 (January 20 2014)

  • fix for broken transitions() method (issue #74)

Version 2.3.4 (January 17 2014)

  • helper method to list which events are allowed from the current state (issue #71 - thanks to @mgoldsborough and @chopj)

Version 2.3.3 (October 17 2014)

  • added web worker compatability (issue #65 - thanks to @offirmo)

Version 2.3.2 (March 16 2014)

  • had to bump the version number after messing up package registration

Version 2.3.0 (March 15 2014)

  • Added support for bower
  • Added support for nodejs (finally)
  • Added ability to run tests in console via nodejs ("npm install" to get node-qunit, then "node test/runner.js")

Version 2.2.0 (January 26th 2013)

  • Added optional final state(s) and isFinished() helper method (issue #23)
  • extended to accept an array of states (in addition to a single state)
  • Added generic event callbacks 'onbeforeevent' and 'onafterevent' (issue #28)
  • Added generic state callbacks 'onleavestate' and 'onenterstate' (issue #28)

  •

Version 2.1.0 (January 7th 2012)

  • Wrapped in self executing function to be more easily used with loaders like require.js or curl.js (issue #15)
  • Allow event to be cancelled by returning false from onleavestate handler (issue #13) - WARNING: this breaks backward compatibility for async transitions (you now need to return StateMachine.ASYNC instead of false)
  • Added explicit return values for event methods (issue #12)
  • Added support for wildcard events that can be fired 'from' any state (issue #11)
  • Added support for no-op events that transition 'to' the same state (issue #5)
  • extended custom error callback to handle any exceptions caused by caller provided callbacks
  • added custom error callback to override exception when an illegal state transition is attempted (thanks to cboone)
  • fixed typos (thanks to cboone)
  • fixed issue #4 - ensure before/after event hooks are called even if the event doesn't result in a state change

Version 2.0.0 (August 19th 2011)

  • adding support for asynchronous state transitions (see README) - with lots of qunit tests (see test/async.js).
  • consistent arguments for ALL callbacks, first 3 args are ALWAYS event name, from state and to state, followed by whatever arguments the user passed to the original event method.
  • added a generic onchangestate(event,from,to) callback to detect all state changes with a single function.
  • allow callbacks to be declared at creation time (instead of having to attach them afterwards)
  • renamed 'hooks' => 'callbacks'
  •

Version 1.2.0 (June 21st 2011)

  • allows the same event to transition to different states, depending on the current state (see 'Multiple...' section in
