Yet another bug-fix release, important!

July 26th, 2010 by oyvind.kinsey 
Today I spent some time (a lot actually) testing the framework in different browsers, and then especially in older ones like Firefox 2 and Safari 3. I quickly discovered that not all was as it should be, and that there could be several improvements made.

Uploading files cross-domain, ajax-style

July 22nd, 2010 by oyvind.kinsey 
Uploading files the ‘ajax’-style is something that has been easy to do, as it’s really as easy as targeting a hidden iframe and returning the windows content after load.

v2.4.0 is out – feature release

June 20th, 2010 by oyvind.kinsey 
Many users has been confused by the need to wait for the onReady event before using the Socket or Rpc instance. Well, this requirement is now gone as easyXDM will buffer all actions and execute these once the transport is ready, and this means that you can now do var socket = new easyXDM.Socket({ ... }); socket.postMessage("foobar"); without getting a nasty error! http://github.com/oyvindkinsey/easyXDM/issues/19

June 5th, 2010 by oyvind.kinsey 
Version 2.3.2 has just been released, and provides a feature that has been sought after by many. Earlier, when you wanted to style the iframe created by easyXDM, you would have to access it using its container, and then set the style manually. This is no longer needed. By adding a props property to the transports configuration, you can now apply arbitrary properties to the iframe. This is how you would...
