Welcome to the new look Tabulator Documentation!
Tabulator 4.0 has been a long time comming, and you will be happy to hear that it is now 100% jQuery free.
At the moment v4.0 has not been officially released, this beta version is still being updated and is subject to change without notice and should not be treated as stable. Please have a play with it and get in touch with any feeback on the GitHub issues page.
Version 4.0 Progress
The v4.0 code is still under development at the moment, it now contains all of the core updates to the structure and API of Tabulator, including the removal of jQuery, the move over to a promise based design flow, parameter lookups and a shift in the context of callbacks. and everything that is in should be functional. If you find any bugs then please get in touch and let me know what needs to be polished.
There are still serveral improvements comming before this is ready for release, including:
- Improvements to the download module to allow for better PDF generation
- Better touch event handling for mobile interaction
- Render system improvements.
On the whole I am focusing on upgrades to the core functionality in this release, with a number of new and exciting modules comming in the 4.1 release.
Improvments to the virtual DOM rendering system will be split over the 4.0 and 4.1 releases, with so much changing in the core code I want to be sure that things are stable before tinkering too much with the rendering system.
Thanks for your patience will i have been putting this togeather, i hope you enjoy the new and improved Tabulator 4.0!
