I was on a release marathon this week. I released major versions of 7 different stacks! Here is a quick recap of what I released. I hope that you all have a great 3 day weekend!
Target allows you full control over where you would like to position your stacks. You can target the stack to position itself on top of its parent stack. You can also position it relative to the browser window so that it always floats in the same exact location. Lastly you can float the content to the left or right. Target is your one stop shop for stack positioning.
You will have to see this stack in action before you can fully enjoy what it can do for you. It’s an extremely versatile stack that I know you will love.
Global Content v1.1
As good as Global Content is, I have had bigger plans for it ever since it was launched. I am happy to bring you its first major update today. Its jammed pack full of amazing new features.
I already did a full on blog post just about this update so I won’t repeat myself here. This is a pretty ground breaking update!
HTML5 Video v4.0
HTML5 Video got a major overhaul with tons of great fixes and new features. Here are a list of some of the key new features.
- Themes and Style Customizations: There are now 3 player themes that you can use with this stack. You can also customize the background and time rail colors to match your site design.
- YouTube Support: You can now configure the stack to use a YouTube video and still use the nice controls provided in this stack.
- New Video Thumbnail stack: New HTML5 Video Thumbnail stack. This is great to add thumbnails to launch your videos from a lightbox such as Expose. Check out the sample project on the dmg download for an example implementation.
HTML5 Audio v3.0
HTML5 Audio got a major overhaul just like its brother HTML5 Video stack. This update brings a lot of what we saw in the video update. We have a shiny new icon! I think its pretty cool. We also have 3 player themes to choose from. You can also customize the background and time rail colors to match your site design.
CSS Box allows you to assign a class and id to a stack. This can allow you to define your own custom CSS rules to apply to CSS Box and its content. There is also the ability to define inline styles as well.
Edit Mode does one thing… allows you to customize the background color of the Stack Edit Mode. This is useful if you are using a project with a dark background color and maybe want to use white or light colored text and elements.
Knock Explorer allows you to conditionally display or hide content to Internet Explorer users. You can even target specific versions. This is important so that users of older versions of IE still have a pleasant viewing experience. Or you can use this stack to inform them that their web browsing experience is being hampered by using such an old browser.
