Prototype 1.6.0 Final has now been released on the same day as Scriptaculous 1.8.0.
In a previous post about Prototype 1.6.0 RC1, I discussed many of the improvements this release will bring. Prototype 1.6.0 is the most significant release in over two years bringing a completely rewritten Class API, new enchancements to the DOM API and more.
Scriptaculous 1.8.0 was also released on the same day and is fully compatible with Prototype 1.6.0 final. The latest version brings many performance improvements and bug fixes and a few new features, including support for playing .mp3 sounds! Future releases of Scriptaculous 1.x will be bug releases only. A preview version of Scriptaculous 2.0 is expected soon!
Prototip 1.1.0 is expected to be released shortly after the final release of Prototype 1.6.0.
There is also a fantastic new website which recently went live called Scripteka. Scripteka is a site that many users of prototype have been waiting for, a central resource for all libraires, extensions and add-ons created using the prototype framework. It features a full rating system and tagging. Scripteka is itself an application built with prototype.
