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].

    pretty sweet. Is Deme moving to prototype or do you just learn the techniques from reading prototype?

    Hi, Andrew. The new design utilizes Prototype.js. Check the the development group for more info than you probably have time for these days. :)
