1.0.0 entails some breaking changes. Let’s break down the why’s and the how’s.
tail.select has been my go-to library for
<select> dropdowns for a long time. It is actively being used in 400+ websites, some of my plugins, and some of my themes. But the code is huge, and maintaining it, or introducing new features, is hard. The library even has compatibility code for 👴 MooTools and jQuery.
Around 40% of its capabilities and features are not used, and the documentation for these features is either incomplete or missing.
The library is now easier to install, and there are no separate CSS stylesheets, icons, or language files. Everything is in one file, and the
tail.select() function allows for an
options object with all customizations.
Note that if you are using a heavily customized version, you can stay on the current version, which will be archived and kept indefinitely.
Really soon! It’s now in an internal testing phase, where I will be pushing it to all my plugins and to all my client websites. As soon as I am happy with the functionality, I will push an official release.
