RequireJS 1.0 released

Hell yeah. Get it now.

This release is basically the same as the 0.27.1 release. There was just one change, to a regexp used by the optimizer when it converts CommonJS modules to AMD modules via its -convert flag.

This release has been two years in the making. The code and APIs have changed over time based on feedback from the community, and now there are some very strong AMD loaders besides RequireJS. The AMD API and RequireJS have been proven useful and used in real projects.

I created a new Why AMD document if you want to learn more about why the AMD API exists and how you can use it.

I still plan on doing RequireJS releases and pushing modular JavaScript forward. This is not the end, but it is an important milestone. Thank you to the RequireJS and AMD communities for making this release.

Go use it already!
Let's make modular JS a reality on the web today.
