I finally got around to officially releasing maphilight 1.2.
This mostly just updates the official jquery.com release to the HEAD of the github project.
I’d been putting it off because I spent quite a while without easy access to a Windows machine with IE8 to test the fixes that people provided. But I switched back to Windows as my main desktop recently (mainly to play games), so that was resolved.
There’s not much in the way of changes:
- IE8 works now
- New “neverOn” option for use with metadata by Zach Dennis, which stops individual areas from ever being hilighted
- Handles being called on the same area twice differently; now rebuilds the hilighted regions
- …and I added an example of triggering the hilight from another element, since it’s one of the most commonly asked questions
Hopefully I’ll be able to post here a bit more now that I have some of that guilt for not updating off my shoulders. 😛
