Hey Everyone, It's hard to fully explain the amount of new and improved changes that have been implemented because there are just so many and a lot of them are very little but yield huge results. So I wanted to just do a quick recap of some of the bigger new and improved features!
Welcome 52framework loyal followers,
We have seen a lot of people using our framework and have received great suggestions and comments which we have kindly taken into consideration when building the latest and greatest version of 52framework.
That's all great but when can I get my hands on it? Well you can always go to our Google Code page and checkout latest version... but the final painfully tested version will be launched with the launch of the new Enavu 2.0 network. What's this... enavu? It's a network that has been helping Web Developers with all sorts of things for years now. With the launch of Enavu 2.0 we will be launching a few new services that will make your lives easier. First a Completely Free project management solution to rule all PM solutions, we call it Freedcamp. Secondly a complete file hosting solution for all walks of people called Fzilla. And of course a completely redesigned website for Enavu.com.
How excited are we for this launch... SUPER excited. So get excited a lot of cool stuff is coming your way!
(CEO and President of Enavu)
We are super excited to hear about Safari 5 being released as it's a very appropriate version number for the browser that as of now supports the most HTML5 and CSS3 features. Go to apple.com/safari and download it today! Features like fullscreen video support will blow your mind away!
Well since i launched the framework i was expecting a large audience and a few people who are willing to help me maintain this. The audience came, and continues to come, but apparently no one is as keen to help. Oh well!
So since it's only me developing this you may see the progress rather slow, i think i've done a great job of adding emerging technologies like the Video tag, with Flash back up, and as of this release you CAN USE CANVAS! That's right, canvas in every browser! I have a great demo you can use, and a JS file that enables the use in every browser. I also have added some great CSS3 effects you should take advantage of. I also removed the actual Video files from the download so it's faster and easier to download. They are no on the cloud.
I am considering re-designing this place, but i just don't have the time yet.
oh yeah, you can get the latest download here.
Today I added some new features and have decided an overall progression.
First of all let me quickly go over whats inside of 1.1.0 which can be found in the code.google.com/p/52framework
It has a few nice CSS3 properties, even though they are not completely cross browser they do degrade rather nicely in the poor browsers (ie). Those include Text-Shadow, Box-Shadow, Rounded-Corners, and Transform (rotation). I am planning on pulling those outside of the main demo as the stylesheet iteself IS by itself. I will try to add every CSS3 feature that works on multiple browsers and looks fine in non-compliant browsers.
It has the video tag, which is not bothering me because the download has become 20mb and thats scary, so i will try to host those files on the cloud, or ill make a little .5mb file for the videos.
I realize the production time of this framework is rather slow but this seems to be a one man show, so i do it on my spear time. Feel free to contribute however you can!
Very excited to keep going with this, i am highly interested in seeing if u have used the framework for a website u are building.
Hey everybody, i spend a tiny amount of time this morning adding a few CSS3 properties to the latest build, it is usable, but of course it is in beta until i test it on every single browser to see how it can negatively affect you. Also i finally spotted a website based on the framework! So without further ado GoToBed.org. Love the design, great work! Have a design you've made that you want us to add to the upcoming library, add a comment or email me, i love hearing about it! Thanks, Angel
We have been following our audience closely to see if any bugs arise from the official 1.0 release and everything seems good, hence i am proud to say we are officially completely cross browser. There were some rumors about the framework misbehaving in Chrome 5.0 beta with some Add-on... but those shouldn't worry you what so ever. As for upcoming features, we are hoping to add a whole set of classes that will allow you to easily use CSS3 properties that degrade nicely across the board (browser wise that is). We are looking forward to you help! Check us out at http://code.google.com/p/52framework/ ! Thanks, the enavu team
Unfortunately I lost the Text file I had opened as I was changing the framework. But here are some that i remember (i believe the more important ones):
divbecause after reading the HTML5 specification section is used for other purposes (a block with a title and a paragraph... seems like an article type of deal)
blockquoteelement to make it more cross-browser
The 52framework was started by the enavu network as a way to expedite the process of the usage of the latest standards in web development, and the love of the number 52. The 52framework provides an easy way to get started using html5 and css3 while still supporting all modern browsers (including ie6). The 52framework however is going to be a community effort since I will be unable to spend much more time actually improving it (kind of have to run a whole network of websites). But it is an amazing core and i have slaved countless hours on it to make sure it works, and it works well. We are very excited to see this framework grow so feel free to download it and try it out TODAY!
