CHANGES & FEATURES

  • Improves and adds documentation.
  • Sets SC.WebView src to '' instead of 'null' or 'undefined' when the value is null or undefined. Removes the "No matching entry in target" message when value of SC.WebView is cleared.
  • Adds the inline text field to the view's parent rather than its pane. If any view in the chain from pane to the view's parent has a zIndex, the text field won't be visible. By adding it to the parent instead, there's a greater chance that nothing special will need to be done with the text field.
  • Add a difference method to SC.DateTime. SC.DateTime.prototype.difference(a, b, format).

    This method allows you to very easily compute the number of weeks, days, hours, minutes, or seconds between two dates.

  • Improved String.fmt handling of missing named arguments.
  • The SC.Store.reset() method was not clearing out previously constructed RecordArrays, even though the underlying data hash was being cleared. While technically this is valid -> most of the storekeys are set to SC.Record.EMPTY rather than being deleted altogether, which means the storeKey lists inside of the RA's aren't invalidated -> it seems a little strange that a method labeled "reset" does not, in fact, clean up the entire store.

This patch ensures that the entire store is cleared, and adds a few unit tests that enforce the one-record-array-per-query contract.

  • Fixes the order of the container and segmented view in the DOM for SC.TabView so that the segmented view should be rendered above the container without having to resort to forced z-index settings.
  • Adds transition plugin support to SC.ContainerView and introduces five pre-built plugins: SC.ContainerView.PUSH, SC.ContainerView.DISSOLVE, SC.ContainerView.FADE_COLOR, SC.ContainerView.MOVE_IN and SC.ContainerView.REVEAL.
  • Adds a developer error message if an SC.View is created using an existing layerId. This should prevent some weirdness from occurring.
  • Refactors SC.View:animate().

    • animate() uses invokeNext() so that the developer never needs to monkey with the run loop in order to call animate(). Animations will only begin after the browser has had a chance to flush any changes to the DOM, thus ensuring that the animation actually occurs. This will make using .animate() much easier whereas previously, developers would revert to invokeLater/invokeLast to try and make sure the DOM style existed before animate would adjust it.
    • the animate() function can now accept a target argument as well as a method, which conforms to the standard used by many methods in SproutCore.
    • if no target it given the view itself will be the value of this in the callback. Previously, this would be the layoutStyleCalculator, an internal object of SC.View.
    • the animate() function is thoroughly documented now, including notes on how to hardware accelerate position changes.
    • uses new additions to SC.platform and SC.browser to make animations forward compatible and fixes animate() on Firefox nightly
    • hardware accelerated styles no longer remain in the DOM after the animation completes (i.e. sometimes the translate values would stay in the style)
    • resetAnimation() has been renamed to cancelAnimation(), because reset indicates 'revert', but the default behavior doesn't revert the layout.
    • added SC.LayoutState enum for use by cancelAnimation().
    • fixes hasAcceleratedLayer to be dependent on the layout. Previously, adjusting a non-accelerated layout to an accelerate-able layout failed to update the property and hasAcceleratedLayer would be incorrect.
    • cancelAnimation() can now cancel an animation and adjust the layout to its current value during the transition, to its original value or to the final value which is the default. The current value even works for accelerated transitions that use transforms and return CSSMatrix values while animating.
    • simplifies the code somewhat and cleans up a lot of loose ends that remained since the original code was largely copy-pasted over from the old animation framework.
    • removes an observer on the view's layout from within the layoutStyleCalculator and properly chained up the dependencies to remove some manual notification code.
    • Previously, each SC.View created an SC.LayoutStyleCalculator object that it used in a truly dubious manner. The LayoutStyleCalculator was supposed to be a group of functions that could be shared between all views, but instead each view had to create and modify its own instance of the calculator. The calculator had several internal state variables which meant it could not be shared between views. The calculator also cross-referenced the view itself and was never cleaned up resulting in a memory leak. This update untangles the view from the calculator so that the calculator can be shared between views (not really much reason to even have this separate, but none-the-less…).
  • Changes the internal classNames of SC.Theme to be an Array rather than a CoreSet. Having it as a Set makes no sense and the amount of property overloading is ridiculous. We have to check for Objects, Arrays, Strings and Sets, which is a waste of code rather than just standardizing on an Array like classNames is on SC.View. Also, this causes problems if developers use the theme's classNames and assume it will be an Array like with SC.View.
  • Refactors transition and animation testing of SC.platform; adds SC.browser.cssPrefix, SC.browser.domPrefix and SC.browser.classPrefix; adds SC.browser.experimentalNameFor(), SC.browser.experimentalStyleNameFor() and SC.browser. experimentalCSSNameFor() methods; adds SC.UNSUPPORTED constant.

    There were many problems with the animation and transition tests that existed before. There was no forward support so browsers, like the Firefox nightly that have dropped prefixes, would fail to identify as supporting transitions and transforms. Also, animation event listeners were hard coded into RootResponder for webkit only. Also the event names needed to be forward supported as well and because there is no consistency in the event naming, the real transition and animation events may not have been captured on certain browsers.

    Now, SC.platform does quick and precise tests to determine the actual event names allowing the RootResponder to listen only to the properly named events rather than using a shotgun approach with a bunch of different browser prefixes.

    To make the code forward compatible for when prefixes are dropped, SC.browser has three new support functions: experimentalNameFor(), experimentalStyleNameFor(), experimentalCSSNameFor(). These functions return the proper name for experimental names for object classes & properties, DOM properties and CSS attributes, not by guessing, but by testing the standard name and then testing prefixed versions of the name if necessary. This allows developers to avoid writing code like: SC.browser.cssPrefix + "box-shadow black 0 1px 2px", which will fail on browsers that no longer need a prefix and instead use: SC.browser.experimentalCSSNameFor('boxShadow'), which will return either "box-shadow", some browser prefix + "box-shadow" or SC.UNSUPPORTED (allowing you to do something else).

  • Makes invokeNext trigger the next run of the run loop if none is scheduled. This makes invokeNext the appropriate method to use when needing the DOM to be up-to-date before running code against it.

    Previously, invokeNext functions would not run until the next run loop occurred, which if there were no events or timers, might mean that the code won't run for a long time. While invokeLast lets you put code at the end of the run loop, the DOM will not have yet been updated and invokeLater is risky to use at small intervals, because if the interval is too small, the invokeLater code will run in the current run of the run loop and again the DOM will not have been updated. Instead, invokeNext now ensures that the run loop completes execution and schedules an immediate timeout in order to allow the browser to update the DOM.

    This works with the timer additions to the run loop, so additional run loops only run once even if there is an invokeLater expiring at the same time as the invokeNext timeout triggers a new run loop.

  • Refactors SC.RenderContext to simplify the API, introduce consistent naming and make it behave appropriately. This should remove the guess work about whether a function is or is not supported by the context and make it easier to remember the names and parameters of each method.

    • There are now 3 similar access methods: attrs(), classes(), styles()
    • There are now 3 similar add methods: addAttr(), addClass(), addStyle()
    • There are now 3 similar remove methods: removeAttr(), removeClass(), removeStyle()
    • There are now 2 similar reset methods: resetClasses(), resetStyles()
    • Fully backwards compatible.
    • Duplicate and inconsistent method names have been deprecated: css(), html(), classNames(), resetClassNames(), attr()
    • Adds several Developer Warnings to aid developers in updating their code (in debug mode only as not to take up space in production).
  • Added platform detection for the Apache Cordova (formerly phonegap) javascript-to-mobile bridge.
  • Added gitignore entries for .project and .settings, which are eclipse-specific configuration files.
  • Updates jQuery framework to 1.8.3 and removes buffered jQuery.
  • Patches jQuery to prevent security warnings in IE.

    This does NOT patch jQuery to make all calls to .append(), .insert(), etc. pass security validation in IE. Instead it uses execUnsafeLocalFunction to perform jQuery's tests that are based on invalid HTML.

  • Minor optimizations to Array#filterProperty.
  • Improves animation support for current and future browsers. The previous platform checks prevented using accelerated layers on non-webkit platforms, plus any browser that dropped the prefixes would indicate that they did not have support for transitions and transforms.
  • Removes duplicate transitionend event listeners and only listens for the supported platforms event.
  • Adds 'delay' option to set the transition-delay property
  • Adds new SproutCore-only date time formatter, %E, to SC.DateTime which returns the elapsed time from or since now. There is an entire set of default values from the number of years ago to right now to a number of years in the future and of course the strings are completely configurable and localizable.

    For example,

    var date = SC.DateTime.create();

    date.toFormattedString("%E"); // "Right now"

    date.advance({ minute: 4 }); date.toFormattedString("%E"); // "In 4 minutes"

    date.advance({ day: -7 }); date.toFormattedString("%E"); // "About a week ago"

  • Adds SC.appCache and SC.platform.supportsApplicationCache. Working with the application cache is a confusing and time-consuming task. This simple object abstracts out the most important properties for developers to use: hasNewVersion, isNewVersionValid, progress and isReadyForOffline all the while using the minimum number of event listeners which are properly cleaned up when unneeded. It also has a property shouldPoll that will lazily look for updates in the background at a fixed interval. This could be especially useful in a test environment, where you want to ensure that the testers aren't running the old version (which happens frequently when using the application cache).

  • Improves the center calculation for view layouts. Previously you could not use a % width or height with a center value, but there is no technical reason for this limitation. For example, a view with width: 0.3% and centerX: 0, should get the layout style: "width: 30%; left: 50%; margin-left: -15%". Previously it would show a warning and give the view a non-functioning style: "width: 30%; left: 50%; margin-left: 50%".
  • Removes a lot of legacy default CSS attached to SC.SegmentedView. Also makes default SproutCore theme more easily allow for sprited button images (requires a width and height on the icon). After some consideration, the icon sizes are set by default to: 12x12px for small, 14x14px for regular, 16x16px for large and 24x24px for huge. These sizes fit well with the theme and although odd numbered heights would position a bit more nicely, even numbered height icons are much more common.
  • Allows SC.State to represent the empty ("") route. Previously, there was no way for a state to represent the empty route using representRoute:. Now a state can set representRoute: "" to be triggered when the empty route is fired.
  • Improves SC.request.deparam so that it can accept a full URL, not just the params section only.
  • Adds SC.platform.supportsWebSQL and SC.platform.supportsIndexedDB.
  • Improves the Welcome apps slightly:
    • sorts the apps by name alphabetically
    • groups SproutCore apps after project apps
    • adds a new icon for app targets to further differentiate between the developer's apps and the SproutCore apps (Used in the TestRunner app too)

DEPRECATIONS & REMOVALS

  • Deprecates SC.platform.cssPrefix and SC.platform.domCSSPrefix in favor of SC.browser.cssPrefix, SC.browser.domPrefix and SC.browser.classPrefix. The css prefix and dom prefix in SC.platform were calculated from the user agent, which duplicated work already being done with more rigor in SC.browser.
  • The :template_view framework is no longer included by default when requiring :sproutcore. This framework is now partially deprecated, meaning that it won't be officially supported by the core team. But it is not scheduled to be removed in any successive version and therefor anyone using it is welcome to continue doing so.
  • The default value of SC.SelectView:itemSeparatorKey has been changed from 'separator' to 'isSeparator' to match the documentation. If a property 'separator' is found on the item, it will still be used and a developer warning will appear in debug mode.
  • The 'owner' property that is assigned to child views is deprecated and may be removed in a future release. This property is assigned to a view's childViews when the view is created. However, it is a duplication of the property 'parentView' and it is not maintained properly and not assigned if a childView is added later using appendChild() or replaceChild().

BUG FIXES

  • Fixes a regression with SC.CollectionView that occurred after a previous fix to remove a view DOM leak. SC.CollectionView previously created a view with the same layerId as the view to be replaced before replacing it, which only worked because of some weird logic external to the CollectionView that used to prevent a view from being able to find its layer if it didn't have a parentView (which was also the cause of a leak because the layer might still exist in the DOM). In any case, having two views use the same layerId at the same time is a bad idea.
  • Fixes duplicate 'input' property in SC.platform.
  • Fixes bug noticed by updated jQuery. The previous version of SC.RenderContext:addStyle() would replace styles, which was really only due to an undocumented behavior of jQuery, plus it is semantically incorrect for 'add' to replace. The refactor of RenderContext makes the functions behave properly.
  • Fixes SC.View:animate() failing to work on Firefox 16+ and IE10+, since they have dropped prefixes on the properties.
  • Fixes problem with cleaning up bindings on SC.View. Previously, SC.View would destroy itself first before calling the super destroy method. This would remove the parentView object from all childViews, which meant that when the super destroy method tried to remove bindings and observers, it was unable to resolve any parentView property paths and thus unable to remove any bindings to the view's parentView.
  • Fixes minor memory leak in SC.Set. The way that SC.Set removes objects is to "untrack" the internal index of the object by shrinking its length, but it never actually removed the object at the last index. The only way that the object could be freed is if a new object is inserted at the same internal index, thus replacing it. If the objects were removed in the reverse order that they were added, every object would still be in the set (until they were possibly overwritten).
  • Fixes moderate memory leak with bindings and observers. Previously, SC.Binding objects and observers were never cleaned up even as views and objects were destroyed which could prevent the views and objects from being garbage collected and prevented the binding objects from being garbage collected.
  • Fixes minor memory leak in SC.ObserverSet. Each time that a new observer is added to an object the ObserverSet for the object will add a tracking hash for the target and the method. As more methods are tracked for the target, they are added and as methods are no longer tracked for the target, they are removed. However, even when no methods are tracked for the target, an empty tracking hash for the target still exists. This creates a small leak of memory, because the target may have been destroyed and freed, but we are still maintaining an empty tracking hash for it.

1.9.2 - BUG FIX RELEASE

  • Softens the build tools dependency requirements from being ultra-pessimistic (i.e. within a minor version) to being pessimistic (i.e. within a major version).
  • Fixes 'repeat' slice for @2x version. It was incorrectly appending @2x to the end of the whole path (ex. /resources/images/image-sliced-from.png@2x instead of /resources/images/image-sliced-from@2x.png).
  • Fixes incorrectly named "responder" generator to "state" generator for generating SC.State subclasses.
  • Fixes the snake case generator for "sproutcore gen", so that names like 'SCProject' get properly transformed to 'sc_project' and not 's_c_project'.
  • Added support for background-size property in Buildtools spriting, this is required for spriting to work properly in retina firefox.
  • Fixes inconsistencies and improper syntax in several templates created with "sproutcore gen".
  • Fixes missing stylesheet warnings on a clean app generated with "sproutcore gen app" or "sproutcore gen statechart_app" by adding a default stylesheet to the app. Also adds a default stylesheet to a design, when using "sproutcore gen design" (i.e. an SC.Page resource)
  • Fixes improper binary search used by SC.ManyArray addInverseRecord that resulted in an infinite loop.
  • Fixes bug that allowed the context menu to appear regardless of overriding contextMenu in a view or setting SC.CONTEXT_MENU_ENABLED or isContextMenuEnabled to false. This makes the context menu event handling behave the same as the key, mouse, etc. event handling.
  • Fixes actions: deleteForward, deleteBackward, moveLeft, moveRight, selectAll, moveUp and moveDown to be always handled by the TextFieldView element when it has focus.
  • Fixes SC.TextFieldView to insert a new line when the enter key is pressed on a text area.
  • Fixes the hint value for SC.LabelView so that it will appear when the label has no value and isEditable is true. Includes unit test.
  • No longer modifies the underlying items given to an SC.SegmentedView with an overflow menu directly so that we don't invariably dirty the original object.
  • Fixes regression in IE7 and IE8 which caused XHR requests to fail to notify. Also fixes unit tests to pass in IE7+.
  • Fixes debug images and test iframe.html being included in builds. These files (one of which is 2.5MB) would get included into every build, because they were at the wrong path. I removed the apple logo which appears unused in the tests and fixed the directory structure and file references so that 'a_sample_image.jpg' and 'iframe.html' don't get included in production builds.

    Note: this is especially a problem if you wanted to create an app manifest based on the contents of the built static directory. The client would have to download a 2.5MB debug image that is never used.

  • Fixes SC.browser unit tests
  • Fixes determination of touch support in Chrome on Win 8.
  • Adds missing un-prefixed border-radius rules to the default theme for browsers that have dropped the prefix.

1.9.1 - BUG FIX RELEASE

  • Unit tests verifying ALL fixes are included.
  • Fixes a bug that left childView elements in the DOM when they were rendered as part of their parent's layer and the child was later removed.

    If childView layers are rendered when the parentView's layer is created, the layer property on the childView will not be cached. What occurs is that if the childView is then removed from the parent view without ever having its layer requested, when it comes time to destroy the DOM layer of the childView, it will try to find it with a get('layer'). The bug was that it only returned a layer if the view has a parent view. However, since the child was removed from the parent first and then destroyed, it no longer has a parent view and would not try to find its leftover DOM layer.

  • Fixes improper implementation of SC.SelectionSet:constrain (fixes #870). It was naively using forEach to iterate through the objects while mutating the array so that the last object could never be constrained.
  • Fixes implicit globals in SC.MenuPane, creating a possible memory leak.
  • Fixes memory leak with child views of SC.View. The 'owner' property prevented views from being able to be garbage collected when they are destroyed.
  • Fixes SC.stringFromLayout() to include all the layout properties.
  • Fixes the excess calling of parentViewDidResize on child views when the view's position changes, but it's size doesn't. Previously, views that had fixed sizes (i.e. width + height), but not fixed positions (i.e. not left + top) would still call parentViewDidResize on their own child views each time that the view's parent view resized. However, this isn't necessary, because changes to the view's parent view will effect the view's frame, but if the view has a fixed size, it will not effect the child view's frames.
    • This fixes a strange issue that occurs with SC.ImageView's viewDidResize implementation, where it fails to resize appropriately.
    • This separates isFixedLayout into isFixedPosition + isFixedSize, allowing us more options to decide what to do when the layout is a fixed position vs. a fixed size vs. both vs. neither.
    • Note: A similar optimization already exists in layoutDidChange.
  • Fixes bug in SC.Locale that caused localizations to be overwritten by the last language localized.
  • Fixes SC.Request's application of the Content-Type header. It was incorrectly adding the header for requests that don't have a body which would cause some servers to reject GET or DELETE requests.
  • Fixes a bug where SC.Record relationships modified within a nested store, would fail to propagate the changes to the parent store if isMaster was NO in the toOne or toMany attribute. This also fixes possible instances of the same bug if using writeAttribute() and passing YES for the ignoreDidChange param inside a nested store.

1.9.0

CHANGES & FEATURES

  • Improves and adds much documentation.
  • Adds the Showcase app used on http://showcase.sproutcore.com. This app contains an up-to-date implementation of all of SproutCore's Views and Controls, including code snippets for the many options of each. The app also links into the SproutCore demos, which are being recovered and re-implemented.
  • Introduces SC.Color:
    • feature detection for rgba
    • parser from rgb(a), hsl(a), hex, and argb values to a normalized rgb space
    • converter from the normalized rgb space to rgb(a), hsl(a), hex, and argb notations
    • hsl mutators to rotate the hue, saturate, or lighten a color
  • Fixes and enhances the media framework:
    • enables live scrubbing
    • decouples MediaSlider and Audio/Video view
    • fixes layout rendering by creating a render delegate
    • adds SC.mediaCapabilities for media capability detection
    • updates styling to use Chance
  • Adds window.requestAnimationFrame() polyfill. This allows you to use requestAnimationFrame on any browser, which will use the browser's version or fallback to a basic timer version instead. This does not use the run loop, because this is for non-event driven animations.
  • Adds indeterminate SC.ProgressView support.
    • updated to match new SproutCore theme
    • uses CSS animation if possible or else falls back to highly optimized JavaScript animation.
  • Adds useUnixTime attribute to SC.DateTime record attribute handlers.
  • Adds XHR2 event notification support.

    Here are some example uses:

    • req.notify('progress', this, this.reqDidProgress); // Handle 'progress' events
    • req.notify('abort', this, this.reqDidAbort); // Handle 'abort' events
    • req.notify('upload.progress', this, this.reqUploadDidProgress); // Handle 'progress' events on the XMLHttpRequestUpload
  • Adds ability for SC.Query to compare through association (i.e. query.orderBy = 'address.street' now works).
  • Adds several more unit tests and fixes outdated unit tests.
  • Moves base CSS for SC.ButtonView, SC.CheckboxView and SC.RadioView out of the foundation framework and into the desktop framework where these views are defined.
  • Prevents exception when setting SC.SelectView items to null.
  • Prevents exception when clicking on a content-less SC.CollectionView.
  • Improves SC.SelectView handling of separator items.
    • Previously, if a separator item didn't include a title, it would throw an exception in String loc().
    • Added a small improvement to the SelectView performance since separator items can't be selected so we don't need to check them.
    • Added unit test showing that the first selectable item becomes the default value when no value is set. This prevents disabled items or separators from being default.
  • Adds binding between a tree controller and it's tree item observer to keep the selection options between the two in sync ('allowsSelection', 'allowsMultipleSelection', 'allowsEmptySelection').
  • Adds 'interpretKeyEvents' support to SC.TextFieldView allowing you to implement special handling of many common keys. For example, it is now easy to submit the value of a field or fields when the 'Return' key is pressed by adding an insertNewline() method to the text field view. Other interpreted keys are: escape, delete, backspace, tab, left arrow, right arrow, up arrow, down arrow, home, end, page up and page down.
  • Moves key_bindings to core_foundation so it can be with views/view/keyboard (the only file that uses it).
  • Refactors createNestedRecord for child records without primary keys:
    • The previous version had some broken code, such as checking for the existence of id, although it is not set anywhere previously or passed to the function and creating an existingId variable for no purpose. It also wrapped most of the function in a run loop, but this is not necessary.
    • The previous version would create a new record even if the child record has no primary key, which would auto-generate a new primary key and thus a new store key each time that same child record needed to be re-accessed. It also did extra work fixing up the store by having to manipulate the id after creation.
    • This version generates a re-usable id upfront for child records that don't have a primary key value. This means that the id is unique to that child record and if the child record is unloaded and reloaded, even though it doesn't have a primary key, it will still get the same generated id and thus, get the same store key in the store, preventing the store from creating new objects and leaking the caches on the old child record.
  • Changes SC.ArrayController orderBy syntax to 'key ASC' or 'key DESC', not 'ASC key' or 'DESC key'.
    • SC.Query's and MySQL's ordering syntax are both 'key DIR' and so SC.ArrayController's syntax should be the same.
  • Adds functionality to SC.routes to pull the parameters out of the location when it is URL encoded. For example, 'videos/5?format=h264&size=small&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DG0k3kHtyoqc%26feature%3Dg-logo%26context%3DG21d2678FOAAAAAAABAA' now properly has url: 'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0k3kHtyoqc&feature=g-logo&context=G21d2678FOAAAAAAABAA' in the params object.
  • Adds observer support of firstObject and lastObject on Enumerables. Note: Any Object that mixes in SC.Enumerable must pass the start and length arguments to enumerableContentDidChange() for firstObject and lastObject to be independently observable.
  • Fixes SC.ArrayController so that when orderBy changes, the firstObject and lastObject properties are invalidated and thus recomputed if needed.
  • Refactors SC.GridView so that the adjustment of item views only updates when the frame changes. It is also has much better performance by only changing on a width change, since items are positioned left to right and only changing the items currently visible.
    • This also makes SC.GridView work with sparse data, where it would previously have requested the entire array of data each time the clipping frame changed (happens on scroll in SC.ScrollView).
    • This fixes a problem rotating grid views on an iPad.
  • Improves SC.DROP_ON support for SC.ListView and SC.GridView. These views now update the target item's isDropTarget property to reflect that it is the target of a drag and drop operation, which allows us to style the drop target item appropriately.
    • Previously the support was commented out in SC.GridView and was incorrectly implemented in SC.ListView (it wiped out the isSelected value on the target items).
  • Prevents exception on SC.CollectionFastPath when calling itemViewForContentIndex() before the view was visible.
  • Enhances SC.SegmentedView to support vertical layout and adds a vertical layout theme.
  • Makes SC.DisclosureView default CSS more directly targeted to that type of button only.
  • Removes internal _observers, _bindings and _properties arrays from SC.Object classes after they are created. This was a waste of memory.
  • Reduces the default touchBoundary on touch controls from 50px outside, which is really big, to 25px outside.
  • Makes iframes scrollable in iOS by default.
  • Fixes the default value of SC.MenuPane's itemSeparatorKey to be 'isSeparator' as indicated in the documentation.
  • SC.LabelView with a value of null or undefined will render an empty string "", not "null" or "undefined".
  • Adds a warning in debug mode when duplicate bindings for the same key are detected. This warning detects when a binding is being created more than once for the same property.
    • For example, if you define 'smallBinding' inside 'MyApp.ParentClass = SC.View.extend({ smallBinding: … ' and then extend MyApp.ParentClass further like so 'childView1: MyApp.ParentClass.extend({ smallBinding: … ', then childView1 would have the same binding to small appearing twice in its bindings Array. This can lead to strange behavior when you try connect and disconnect the bindings on the fly.
  • Adds support to SC.MenuPane for pgUp/pgDown/home/end to navigate the menu.
  • Improves SC.ModalPane's automatic disabling of covered SC.TextFieldViews.
    SC.ModalPane will disable tabbing into any fields not in the current pane, so that tabbing won't jump "behind" the modal pane. However, if the text field had isBrowserFocusable set to NO, SC.ModalPane would unintentionally set it to YES when it was done. This is no longer the case and SC.ModalPane will respect the previous value of isBrowserFocusable on each text field.
  • SC.View:animate() no longer fires multiple callbacks when animating more than one property at the same time.
  • Adds support for SC.Object:invokeOnceLater() so that additional arguments that are given are passed to the target method.

DEPRECATIONS & REMOVALS

  • The default value of SC.Menu:itemSeparatorKey has been changed from 'separator' to 'isSeparator' to match the documentation. If a property 'separator' is found on the menu item, it will still be used and a developer warning will appear in debug mode.
  • SC.ArrayController's orderBy direction syntax has been changed to match that of SC.Query and MySQL. Using the previous syntax will result in a developer warning in debug mode.
  • Removes the TestControls app from SproutCore. This app was not well-maintained and has been replaced by the Showcase app used on http://showcase.sproutcore.com.

BUG FIXES

  • Fixes touchIsInBoundary function of SC.View to account for the fact that the screen coordinates of the view can change without its frame or parentView changing.
  • Fixes critical bug in SC.View:animate() where animating a layout property and then later animating a different layout property on the same view would throw an exception.
  • Fixes edge cases of SC.View:animate() so that callbacks are still fired if animating to the current value or animating with a duration of zero.
  • Fixes missing computed properties, bindings and observers when reopening a class. When re-opening a class we have to also re-configure all current subclasses of that class. If we don't, then any computed properties, bindings or observers added in the reopen() won't be registered in instances of the subclass.
    • Makes the call to reopen() recurse through all the current class's subclasses in order to re-extend them. If the hash given to reopen() contains computed properties, bindings or observers, these will be registered for the subclass.
    • Takes care not to override properties that the subclass may have defined prior to the reopen().
  • Fixes SC.Object.prototype.mixin so that the mixed in objects' observables are initialized.
  • Prevents multiple change notifications firing with changes to SC.Array and SC.SparseArray.
  • Fixes SC.ArrayController's orderBy to work with more than a single Array item. Ex. testController.set('orderBy', ['lastName', 'firstName']) would not have ordered by firstName second.
  • Fixes SC.UserDefaults readDefault for Firefox 13 to return a default value.
  • Fixes memory leak in the store when removing or replacing child records.
    • The first time that you access a child record, the store updates four caches: parentRecords (parentStoreKeys => [childStoreKeys]), childRecords (childStoreKeys => parentStoreKeys), records (SC.Record instances), dataHashes (SC.record backing attributes).
    • Previously, if you set the child record to null or unloaded and reloaded the parent record or set the child record to a new child record and the child record doesn't have a primary key, the store would create duplicates on all these hashes, resulting in a memory leak.
    • Now each time that you set the value of the child record on the parent, it clears the old child record caches in the store.
    • See previous tests to prove the memory leak, by modifying the child record and checking the number of properties in the store's caches.
  • Removes SC.SegmentedView's observers from items when they are removed from the view. This prevents a case where a removed item calls itemContentDidChange and puts itself back in a segment.
  • Fixes customized classNameBindings. (ex. classNameBindings: ['isWorking:wkg'])
  • Fixes memory leak with SC.TextFieldView accessory views and with typing large amounts of text.
  • Fixes addition of has-icon class to list items that don't actually have an icon defined.
    • There are situations where a ListItem will have hasContentIcon set to true, but will not have an icon defined. It's more proper to not add the has-icon class, which makes space for an icon, if there is no icon.
  • Fixes gray background appearing on first and last segments and white background appearing on first and last disabled segmentes of SC.SegmentedView.
  • Fixes mouse move, enter, exiting on SC.SegmentedView when a segment is disabled.
    • previously, the disabled segment still received the active class when the mouse moved into it or over it
    • added unit tests to show that the active class is properly applied
  • Fixes the application of defaultValues to the data hash in createRecord and also allows the provided hash to use the attribute name OR the attribute key when there is a key.
    • The previous implementation would assign 'null' data hash properties for every property in the record, now the data hash only includes attributes.
    • The default value would be applied to the attribute name in the data hash, which didn't work if the attribute used a key.
    • Previously, if a record attribute had a key, then accidentally passing the attribute name instead of the attribute key would fail to work correctly. Now it will accept the name and/or the key and only store the key in the data hash.
  • Fixes the default styling for SC.TextFielView on IE, Opera and Mobile Safari.
  • Fixes the styling for icons on SC.LabelView.
    • the previous style caused the entire label to be position relative with middle vertical-align when an icon was included. Those styles should only apply to the img.
  • Fixes theming of SC.SegmentedView.
    • fixed the disabled style wasn't being applied to the view or its segments
    • changed font size of regular size view from 11px to 12px which matches the font size of regular size button
    • fixed the img positioning to be properly centred for the different size controls
  • Fixes Jumbo control size style on SC.ButtonView to allow for 24px high icons.
  • Fixes setting content of SC.StaticContentView to null, so that it removes the previous content.
  • Fixes default CSS on SC.ListItemView img.right-icon
  • Fixes default vertical icon position for SC.SMALL_CONTROL_SIZE checkbox.
  • Converts background-position CSS which is not yet supported by FireFox to CSS which is currently supported by FireFox.
  • Fixes regression with SC.offset and Mobile Safari targeted code.

1.8.2 - BUG FIX RELEASE

  • Prevents target property conflict when configuring button targets with SC.AlertPane. [0364b5c]
  • Changed the aria-orientation of horizontal SC.ScrollView to 'horizontal' from 'vertical'. [c3ee69b]
  • Allows SC.CollectionFastPath to work with sparse content by always returning an item view even when content isn't yet available. [020653b]
  • Prevents SC.GridView from iterating over its content array in order to work with sparse content. [020653b]
  • The 'mobile-safari' body class name is no longer being added in all browsers. [b491224]
  • Enables pasting in SC.TextFieldView to notify that the value changed. [a51318b]
  • Prevents default touch behavior being intercepted on and elements in mobile Safari. [8093963]

1.8.1 - BUG FIX RELEASE

  • Documentation fixes.
  • Fixes the timeout proxy settings: :inactivity_timeout & :connect_timeout. Setting them in a proxy config allows the developer to extend the timeout for the connection to be setup and for activity to occur.
  • Adds missing CSS for SC.PickerPane left and right pointer.
  • Tidies up index.rhtml template:
    • removes self-closing HTML
    • renames app.manifest to manifest.appcache
  • Fixes the styling of ModalPane backdrop for SC.PanelPane. [b1d386a]

    • fixes problem centering input elements in IE8
    • fixes problem positioning hint in textareas
    • improves readability of hints by making them antialiased in Webkit
  • Fixes issue when subsequent attempts to load a failed/aborted image will result in queue processing being stalled. [62ad31f]
  • Fixes nesting SC.ScrollViews not passing mousewheel events from child to parent scroll view when child can no longer scroll. [341e88d]
  • Fixes styling problem with SC.ListItemView right-icon. [6de3c55]
  • Fixes SC.StaticContentView not removing previous content when setting content to null. [81307a8]
  • Fixes Safari focus ring artifacts in panes and Chrome bug with non-HW accelerated animations in render layers, by removing the default .sc-pane --webkit-transform: translate3d(0,0,0) CSS. This also makes it possible to accurately manage which parts of the page should become layers, because making everything a layer is not optimal. [f9d56f3]

1.8.0

CHANGES & FEATURES

  • Added --statechart switch to sc-gen app to get a base statechart setup.
  • Addition of invokeNext to SC.RunLoop (easily accessed from SC.Object). This function invokes the passed target/method pair once at the beginning of the next runloop, before any other methods (including events) are processed. Use this to defer painting to make views more responsive.

    If you call this with the same target/method pair multiple times it will only invoke the pair only once at the beginning of the next runloop.

  • Addition of invokeOnceLater to SC.Object. A convenience method which makes it easy to coalesce invocations to ensure that the method is only called once. This is useful if you need to schedule a call but only want it to trigger once after some defined interval has passed.
  • Desktop framework thoroughly updated to include WAI-ARIA attributes for improved compatibility with assistive technologies.
  • Addition of routing integration with SC.Statechart. States can be made to represent a route (by default SC.routes routes) and if assigned then the state will be notified to handle the route when triggered any time the app's location changes to match the state's assigned route.
  • Added mult extension to String that multiplies a string a given number of times. [5a2aee1]
  • Addition of SC.StatechartDelegate mixin. Apply this to objects that are to represent a delegate for a SC.Statechart object. When assigned to a statechart, the statechart and its associated states will use the delegate in order to make various decisions.
  • TextFieldView has a new property'hintOnFocus' which uses a div to act in place of the regular 'placeholder' so that it remains visible when the text field has focus.
  • SC.TextFieldView long placeholders will show ellipsis if too long. [ab66960]
  • Rewrite of SC.browser. Matches more browsers correctly and replaces the potpourri of various properties with seven standard properties: device, name, version, os, osVersion, engine and engineVersion with matching constants: SC.BROWSER, SC.DEVICE, SC.OS, SC.ENGINE.
  • Added a function SC.RunLoop.wrapFunction, which, when called on a function, returns a version wrapped in code that ensures a run loop. [de83d88]
  • Created a new object SC.bodyOverflowArbitrator, which, given requests for body overflow:hidden; or overflow:visible; will decide which overflow to assign. Objects issue, then change or withdraw their requests. Previously, views may have set the body overflow directly, which would lead to unpredictable behavior when more than one object had an interest in the setting at one time. [c55e32b]
  • APP_IMAGE_ASSETS is a new global array that contains the list of all sprited images, this is ideal to preload images at different points. Even before the app or SC finishes loading. [31c2239]
  • Added support for text selection in SC.TextFieldSupport. [1dcc289]
  • Don't throw an exception if there are SC.Record.EMPTY records in the store and calling commitRecords on the store.
  • Changed getDelegateProperty of SC.DelegateSupport to not accept null as a valid value.
  • Updated Handlebars to version 1.0.0.beta.4. [e80d40d]
  • Added helper method patchUrl to SC.Request. [5e955ce]
  • Throw an error in development mode when passing an incorrect parameter to SC.IndexSet.create.
  • Added default itemTagNames for 'dl' and 'select' collection tagNames in TemplateCollectionView. [73c3f84]
  • Don't allow disabled radio buttons to be checked in SC.RadioView. [99e47b1]
  • Moved all TemplateView code into its own framework. It is still included by default when requiring :sproutcore in your Buildfile, but can easily be excluded by requiring specific frameworks instead.
  • Speed improvement in IE by avoiding excessive focusin/focusout events. [1c817a9]
  • Speed improvements in renderContext, switching from joining arrays of strings to simple string concatenation.
  • SC.TabView places tabs first in the view hierarchy for accessibility. [9e1b4e4]
  • In SC.SelectView, if value object and list objects are both records, compare the store keys to see if they are really the same thing.
  • Added @lang support for multi-lingual text-to-speech voices. [4f9ec80]
  • Faster code escaping using regular expressions instead of DOM.
  • New flag to stop picker repositioning when the window is resized.
  • SegmentedView update to enable/disable overflow.
  • Small performance improvement for splitView.
  • New string measurement functions to optimize for string wrapping.
  • Added support for autoCorrect and autoCapitalize in TextFields.
  • Added back object types previously removed by the refactored SC.Object
  • Refactored observer paths code for a more robust handling.
  • Rewrite SC.LOG_RUNLOOP_INVOCATIONS — now renamed to SC.LOG_DEFERRED_CALLS — to work with the new runloop implementation.
  • Added this SC.RunLoop.kill to terminate cleanly a run loop in case of an error.
  • Added the ability to dynamically add substates to a statechart via a state's addSubstate method.
  • Updated the statechart tracing logic.
  • Updated SC.State. getSubstate now accepts a callback; added getState method; gotoState and gotoHistoryState now use getState
  • Updated state's gotoState and gotoHistoryState to allow for a more expressive state arg that now allows for the use of 'parentState'
  • Updated SC.State's getSubstate method to allow for path expressions. Also refacted the findFirstRelativeCurrentState method.
  • New SC globals to provide information like build mode, build number and locale.

DEPRECATIONS & REMOVALS

  • SC.Animatable has been deprecated. Please use the animate method in SC.View.
  • SC.TableView has been deprecated. Please use one of the alternative community versions.
  • Several properties of SC.browser have been deprecated. Please use the standardized properties and matching constants.

BUG FIXES

  • Fixed an issue causing ScrollerView to not render correctly on first time. [2e26048]
  • Fixed an issue with SC.RecordArray's made up of new records without guids, where the order of the array would change in Chrome. [3937a54]

  • Fixed the determination of hasAcceleratedLayer for accelerated Views.
  • Fix 'x' & 'y' values returned by SC.pointInElement. Note: This method is the most correct way to test the inclusion of a point within a DOM element.
  • Fix rangeStartForIndex in SC.IndexSet when encountering holes where hints should have pointed. [506752b]
  • Fix in Handlebars template integration, so that the triple-stash {{{ doesn't escape values and only {{ does. [7d3703d]
  • Fixed adding .sc-complete class to SC.ProgressView when the maximum is reached. [98b4ce5]
  • Fixed inline text field view attempting to be blurred after it is destroyed. [fe18943]

  • Tabbing was not respecting modal panes. Fixed so that textfields get a tabindex=-1 when they are not in the modal pane. [4313d5f]
  • When apps didn't have a first responder at loading time the app would throw an error.
  • Passing the native event when a focus or blur event is called. This makes it consistent with all the other event handlers.

  • Fixed test typo
  • Make sure YUI reset styles are in the yuireset framework
  • Add displayTitle for SC.Checkbox which allows the title to be localized.
  • Fix datetime values being null when localization is being used. Causes problems when you try to format dates at execution time
