New technical paper available

While you’re waiting for the new version of Deme, Ben Newman (Deme Team developer) has written a course paper detailing how he’s solved a vexing problem for programming the new version’s interface: the “hidden fields” limitation in JavaScript’s inheritance scheme. His library-based approach, building on Prototype, is described here [pdf file].

New version coming soon!
