ZOO 2.3 stable released


ZOO 2.3 stable released

Today we are excited to announce that ZOO 2.3 has gone stable! A big thank you to all of our BETA testers! ZOO 2.3 is now available to the public for free. The new release is all about migrating from MooTools to jQuery. But there are lots of bugfixes and other improvements to explore.

ZOO 2.3 does NOT depend on the MTupgrade plugin anymore and you will have less JavaScripts conflicts. We had to exchange the syntax highlighter in the documentation app. Please read here for the new syntax.

Grab your own copy of ZOO 2.3 and take it for a spin.

Yep, you heard right ;-) All our old MooTools based JavaScripts are completely rewritten for jQuery and all Warp based templates and the ZOO make use of it. You may ask why did this happen? Well, here is the story!
