Plans for the Next Major Version of Exponent

Friday, January 25, 2013 Tags: preview

Even though the next incremental version of Exponent (v2.1.1) hasn't hit the streets, we're pleased to announce plans for a major update!  Exponent v2.2 will leave the fetters of the old school (0.9x) behind and take a bold move forward.  While we've already upgraded from most of the old school code, we still have a major hurdle to cross and need to leave ancient stuff in the past.  Additionally, we'll sport an updated look by moving to Twitter-Bootstrap and jQuery as our primary libraries (though you can rest assured we'll still support YUI2/YUI3).  To help prepare the way, we'll release both a stable (v2.0/2.1) and unstable (v2.2) packages.  The v2.2 stuff will go through the same routine as was done leading up to the release of v2.0.0 stable (though in a much shorter time span).  In the meantime, v2.1.1 when released, will continue to be supported as THE stable release with updates and bug fixes as needed.  Details about the update and release strategy can be found in this blog post.
