YUI Weekly - Sept 21st, 2012
3.7 is out! This was the first release on our quick-release cycle, but there was still a lot packed into the 6 weeks since 3.6. You'll find some nice improvements with custom events, a big update to ScrollView, new modules like event-tap & node-scroll-info, and lots more! A quick follow up release to 3.7.0 is out the door with 3.7.1, and 3.7.2 is in the works.
A big warm welcome to Andrew Wooldridge (@triptych) who joins the YUI Team as our first community engineer. Andrew is a current Yahoo and long-time member of the YUI community, so we're happy to see him come aboard to work with us (and you!) full-time. Head over to his blog to read some YUI tutorials, and check out slides from his YUI: Hidden Gems talk at last year's YUIConf. Speaking of...

A recent addition to the Gallery is gallery-bottle, an HTML5 framework for mobile UI components. Hat tip to all the contributors involved in the project for extensive documentation and demos. Nice work!
As we move towards faster releases, it can be handy to quickly bounce around between version tags, so '
git fetch origin --tags' will update your tag list, and '
git checkout v3.7.1' to grab a specific version. Worth mentioning, a while back we threw together a shell script to clean up the non-version tags in older forks of the YUI repository, so if you run '
git tag -l' and still see build tags like
yui3-####, run that cleanup script. You will now only see version tags in your list (e.g.
