  • Down to 240 issues thanks to Jasper and Alex’s heroic triage: https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile/issues
  • 1.3 is coming together but with the holidays, beta will probably end up shipping in early January. Last few widgets almost there for beta:
  • 1.4 planning is just starting but this is shaping up to a big re-factor for performance and consistency with the only widget addition being tabs. We will be creating a spec of where we want to go so we can apply the same review to all widgets in terms of widget factory conformance, markup & style re-factoring, etc. in the new year
  • Work on the new demos is well underway to replace the current docs for 1.3 final. Working on the IA and collecting content but there are a few big buckets of content:
    • Widgets in various configs with a view source button to grab snippets
    • Intro guides
    • FAQ style section with common questions/scenarios
    • Real world demos that show off how to customize and extend jQM

  • Nav is merged!
    • Tests are green across the board (old, jquery-git, master)
  • Refactored Nav to two objects Navigator and History, $.navigate is just a proxy
    • $.navigate method name
    • Expose $.mobile namespace outside of core
      • $.History -> $.mobile.History
      • $.Navigator -> $.mobile.Navigator

  • in the api docs, created entry for:
    • table toggle column mode
    • table reflow mode
    • fixedtoolbar

  • Working with Samsung on rebooting web-ui-fw. This has lead to some changes in jQM:
    • Separated out view-source.js to reuse within web-ui-fw.
    • Added issue for widget review: rename ui-disabled to ui-state-disabled, and let the widget factory apply the class via the widget() method which we should also implement - this should give us mostly free-of-charge widget disabling
  • On holiday until 2013-01-02
