ImgAreaSelect 1.0.0-rc.1

I’m happy to announce that the release candidate for version 1.0 of imgAreaSelect is now available for download on GitHub and jQuery Plugins.

The code has actually been sitting in the repository since August 11th, but there were a few unresolved issues with the test suite on mobile browsers that I had to sort out — and I finally found a window of free time big enough to do that.

Adding support for mobile browsers was the most requested feature, and I’m glad it’s there at last (especially considering how painful it was to develop and test). The plugin was tested to work in Safari on iOS, the stock browser on Android 2.x and 4.x, and the mobile versions of Firefox, Chrome, and Opera on Android 4.x — which I think is good enough to say we have it covered.

This version is still strong in terms of backwards compatibility — while it is intended to be used with jQuery 2.x, it works just as well with jQuery 1.9, 1.8, and 1.7. Hell, it even pretty much works in IE6 — sounds perverted these days, doesn’t it? However, don’t take it for granted that it will stay that way in upcoming 1.x releases, as my plan is to focus on jQuery 2.x and the browsers that it supports.

That’s it for now — before I drop the “rc.1″ part and do a proper 1.0 release, I need to update the plugin homepage and documentation, and generally wrap things up. I also hope to get some early feedback, especially from people using the plugin in mobile web apps, so be my guest and try it out!

    Hi Odyniec,

    I had some problem with the new version in combination with bootstrap 3.
    The problem was the grey outer shadow was not position proper.
    The solution for me was adding following CSS to class .imgareaselect-outer
    box-sizing:content-box; -moz-box-sizing:content-box; -webkit-box-sizing:content-box;

    Hope this helps for other people!
