Migrating to v0.5

v0.5 introduced rotation feature and improved performance, as well as a breaking changes in markup structure and class names.

Markup in v0.4:

<div class="image-editor">
  <!-- .cropit-image-preview-container is needed for background image to work -->
  <div class="cropit-image-preview-container">
    <div class="cropit-image-preview"></div>
  <!-- Other stuff -->

New markup in v0.5:

<div class="image-editor">
  <div class="cropit-preview"></div>
  <!-- Other stuff -->

Note that .cropit-image-preview-container element is no longer needed, and all you need is a .cropit-preview (previously .cropit-image-preview) whether or not you want image background that goes beyond the preview area. New markup structure (after cropit is initialized) is as follows:


Note the class name changes:

.cropit-image-preview              => .cropit-preview
.cropit-image-background-container => .cropit-preview-background-container
.cropit-image-background           => .cropit-preview-background

Make sure to update class names in your selectors.
