Willow, the Web Interaction Library that eases the burden of creating AJAX-based web applications reached it's v14.0.0 version.

A lot has been changed in the interaction and component supplier protocols. See the updated migration notes for details. Details on the defaut behavior and custom options for the affordances provided are presented in the updated documentation. Deprecations for methods and classes are available in the migration package Willow-Core-MigrationTo14 (not loaded by default).

  • Renamed Willow-Tests package to Willow-Core-Tests
  • Changed conditional evaluation of user agent commands to work with JSObject instead of String
  • Merged all CSS class change methods into builder style methods
  • Added support to detect conflicting serialization commands
