YUI 2.4.0 Released

YUI team in their blog announced the release of version 2.4.0. It’s available for download and full documentation on YUI website.

New components in this release includes Selector Utility (beta) which implements CSS selector, Charts Control which combine Javascript and Flash (version 9) to create dynamic chart in Flash, Get Utility which provides API for appending script nodes and CSS files to an existing DOM after the page has loaded and JSON Utility which provides methods for transforming data between native JavaScript objects and their JSON string equivalent.

The later seems a bit late to me, considering Douglas Crockford the man behind JSON is none other than Yahoo! javascript architect. 😉

Anyway, i’m glad they finally have chart control component now. It’s pretty useful. I know there are some javascript frameworks out there that has this feature, but i like YUI more with its neat and clean structure. Easy to understand yet hard to make a mistake. What do you think?
