@chasen are we using make anywhere other than publishing our sites? AFAIK, only mac users currently have publishing ability.


It’d be nice if @kdillon could publish the FuncUnit site when there’s a new release.

This Week:

This Week:

  • Patch release of steal-conditional
  • Start working on steal-tools slim loader


This week:

  • Got the DoneJS Glitch template approved for the community garden. Much more documentation; also used it to demonstrate an issue with can-util (see next bullet point)
  • Some community-driven CanJS fixes. For legacy can-compile users, version 0.11 now points to for the hosted releases. can-util’s “focused” DOM pseudo-attribute was’t working on elements that were yet to be added to the DOM; now it will wait for inserted before setting focus. 3.6.2 release of can-util with this fix will be released later today.
  • Pending approval: Adding all ES5 Array functions to can-define/list/; better ordering and defining required deps for can-connect; document can-jquery/data; fix obscure issue with late defines on DefineMap

Next week:

  • Returning to porting things to can-reflect
  • Deep-dive doc for can-view-target (probably)


Attendees: @bmomberger-bitovi @chasen @justinbmeyer @phillipskevin @pYr0x Christopher Baker & the rest of Bitovi
