Prototype 1.5.0 Released

Hot on the heels of the recent jQuery release, Prototype has hit 1.5.0 and now has it's own site. Not only that, but a whole team has been working on documentation. That's right, official documentation!

Go on and read the official announcement. That's right, they even have a blog!

Version 1.5.0_rc2 was already very nice, but official 1.5.0 AND official api docs is great indeed!

Wow, with documentation I may actually get around to trying it out.

Documentation is going to make me really happy.

Sweet, it looks pretty nice with chainability & some tasty new string methods. The team have done a fine job with the framework and the docs. It's a pity prototype doesn't have a compressed version for download though. ~70kb is a bit much to ask our users to download for every website they go to.

I'll be sticking with jQuery (at 19kb), until I find a viable reason not to. I'm totally in love with it :-)
