Prototype 1.5.1 Release Candidate
Looks like we may be in for a round of improvements very soon indeed. Prototype.js is undergoing some pretty impressive improvements as this Ajaxian post demonstrates.
Something I’m looking forward to playing with is the new inbuilt JSON encoding and decoding.
There’s a host of preformance tweaks including nice improvement to $$ though in the Speed test I noticed that DomQuery came top of the stack in most tests in my environment running IE6.
It’s worth the download simply to ensure that you keep getting the improvements.
