Release of yoob.js version 0.5

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

yoob.js has been mentioned in several announcements, but this is the first announcement concerning it specifically. It started out as a project to replace yoob, running esolangs in HTML5 instead of a Java applet, but as of this release — version 0.5 — it has grown some generally-useful features for making animated and interactive things in HTML5, especially on the <canvas> element.

All that notwithstanding, this is a fairly minor announcement for a fairly minor release. The major version number is still at zero, and there will likely be a few backwards-incompatible changes in the next version. But 0.5 has enough reasonably useful junk in it that it's a comfortable snapshot of things at this stage.
