  • Work on 1.4 continues
  • Thorough testing of SVG (Grunticon) vs. icon fonts is almost done.
    • Initial testing results here
    • Grunticon works on every browser we tested, PNG fallbacks are working great. One bug identified in FF 3-3.6 with the fallback has been logged and already fixed.
    • Icon fonts fail in some key devices (WP7, Opera Mini, old Android) and yield false positives to feature tests.
    • Verdict: I think we should use this over icon fonts for max. compatibility.
  • Portland conference: who’s going? Jasper, Gabriel, Alex, Anne-Gaelle

  • Content widget: latest updates are in issue #5427
  • addresses the pagebeforechange double event
  • change == load + transition
  • you get the string or the object in pagebeforechange depending on what was passed in
  • change is just a wrapper around load and transition
  • all the page* events that come from nav are deprecated as of 1.4, use content* now (contentbeforechange)
