RequireJS 0.15.0 Released

RequireJS 0.15.0 is available for download. This is a bug fix/robustness release:
  • The bundled jQuery options now use jQuery 1.4.4.
  • The jQuery sample project now includes the ability to use RequireJS plugins.
  • The jsonp! plugin has been removed, since, thanks to work by Kris Zyp, the core loader now supports loading JSONP dependencies by default. The JSONP docs have been updated accordingly.
  • The optimizer can now be run from any directory, not just the directory with the build profile.
  • r.js Node adapter is more robust, and it can handle using more Node-written modules by default now. Thanks to Francois Laberge for a great test case application that lead to improving the robustness of r.js.
  • Initial support for PS3 Netfront browser. Thanks to Chris Warren for investigating the load behavior of the browser. Not all tests pass, but the basic ones do.
  • Miscellaneous fixes, some listed in the issue tracker.
The next stage of development will likely be a refactoring of the basic code. The code has grown organically along with some changes in requirements over the course of the year, and it would be good to reorganize based on the current understanding of script loading needs. The biggest noticeable change should be a better API for writing loader plugins, but the core API for requiring and defining modules should not change.
