Prototip 1.1.0 preview

In a short follow up to my last post on Prototype 1.6.0 RC1, Nick Stakenburg has just released a preview version of the latest Prototip.

For those who don’t know, Prototip is a tooltip library which allows you to create custom styled tooltips. Prototip is based on the Prototype Javascript Library.

Prototip 1.1.0 is completely rewritten and refactored using the new features and improvements of Prototype 1.6.

New features in this release include:

  • Persistant tooltips: Allowing you to keep tooltips open and customise how you close them with mouse events and close buttons.
  • Opening delay: Specify an amount of time before the tooltip is opened. By default tooltips have a small delay to prevent accidental opening of tooltips when navigating a page.
  • New CSS model: Giving you even more control over tooltip style.

Since the final version of Prototype 1.6 is not yet released, Prototip 1.1.0 was released as a preview. Both the final versions of Prototype 1.6 and Prototip 1.1.0 are expected in November.

More on Prototip can be found at the Prototip site.

    I agree with your post. Which is not something I will usually do! 🙂 I enjoy reading a post that will make one think. Also, thanks for allowing me to comment!

    Great post.Greyscale Hover Effect with CSS & jQuery relies on CSS Sprites and a few lines of jQuery, but reruqies a bit of preparation before it can be implemented. It is not recommended for large scale projects and probably best for displaying portfolio pieces.
