v0.4.2

  • Fix connection failure on iOS6. SockJS 0.3.3 includes this fix.

  • The new preserve-inputs package, included by default in new Meteor apps, restores the pre-v0.4.0 behavior of "preserving" all form input elements by ID and name during re-rendering; users who want more precise control over preservation can still use the APIs added in v0.4.0.

  • A few changes to the Meteor.absoluteUrl function:

    • Added a replaceLocalhost option.
    • The ROOT_URL environment variable is respected by meteor run.
    • It is now included in all apps via the meteor package. Apps that explicitly added the now-deprecated absolute-url smart package will log a deprecation warning.
  • Upgrade Node from 0.8.8 to 0.8.11.

  • If a Handlebars helper function foo returns null, you can now run do {{foo.bar}} without error, just like when foo is a non-existent property.

  • If you pass a non-scalar object to Session.set, an error will now be thrown (matching the behavior of Session.equals). #215

  • HTML pages are now served with a charset=utf-8 Content-Type header. #264

  • The contents of <select> tags can now be reactive even in IE 7 and 8.

  • The meteor tool no longer gets confused if a parent directory of your project is named public. #352

  • Fix a race condition in the spiderable package which could include garbage in the spidered page.

  • The REPL run by admin/node.sh no longer crashes Emacs M-x shell on exit.

  • Refactor internal reload API.

  • New internal jsparse smart package. Not yet exposed publicly.

Patch contributed by GitHub user yanivoliver.

v0.4.1

  • New email smart package, with Email.send API.

  • Upgrade Node from 0.6.17 to 0.8.8, as well as many Node modules in the dev bundle; those that are user-exposed are:

    • coffee-script: 1.3.3 (from 1.3.1)
    • stylus: 0.29.0 (from 0.28.1)
    • nib: 0.8.2 (from 0.7.0)
  • All publicly documented APIs now use camelCase rather than under_scores. The old spellings continue to work for now. New names are:

    • Meteor.isClient/isServer
    • this.isSimulation inside a method invocation
    • Meteor.deps.Context.onInvalidate
    • Meteor.status().retryCount/retryTime
  • Spark improvements

    • Optimize selector matching for event maps.
    • Fix Spark._currentRenderer behavior in timer callbacks.
    • Fix bug caused by interaction between Template.foo.preserve and {{#constant}}. #323
    • Allow {{#each}} over a collection of objects without _id. #281
    • Spark now supports Firefox 3.6.
    • Added a script to build a standalone spark.js that does not depend on Meteor (it depends on jQuery or Sizzle if you need IE7 support, and otherwise is fully standalone).
  • Database writes from within Meteor.setTimeout/setInterval/defer will be batched with other writes from the current method invocation if they start before the method completes.

  • Make Meteor.Cursor.forEach fully synchronous even if the user's callback yields. #321.

  • Recover from exceptions thrown in Meteor.publish handlers.

  • Upgrade bootstrap to version 2.1.1. #336, #337, #288, #293

  • Change the implementation of the meteor deploy password prompt to not crash Emacs M-x shell.

  • Optimize LocalCollection.remove(id) to be O(1) rather than O(n).

  • Optimize client-side database performance when receiving updated data from the server outside of method calls.

  • Better error reporting when a package in .meteor/packages does not exist.

  • Better error reporting for coffeescript. #331

  • Better error handling in Handlebars.Exception.
