So what's been going on?

  • Comparison now has the ability to continue evaluating comparates without breaking.

  • IKO elements now have an 'xpath' attribute which can be used when using abstract, context driven, or parameterised objects.

  • Obyx files now have an optional 'signature' attribute which allows for namespaced (private, static) stores.

  • (X)HTML 5 is now natively supported, as well as XHTML1. The configuration setting for this is OBYX_USING_XHTML5=true.

  • Three new encoders: secret, json, deflate. Secret depends upon a configuration setting OBYX_SALT, which should a hexadecimal string. the json encoder concerts the json format into a simple xml construct. Deflate is often used for http traffic and xml packages.

  • log2. This arithmetic function has been included in order to make it easier to generate metrics concerned with information entropy.

In general, the Obyx language has stabilised and serves many thousands of web pages every day. I have been primarily working on library development to swiftly improve the turnaround time for robust and dynamic page production. The entire team has welcomed and embraced HTML 5.
