Steve Newcomb, CEO at Famo.us, joins us for a second time with software engineer Michael O’Brien to talk about the changes in the framework. Moving toward what Famo.us calls “MIxed Mode”, which will debut in the upcoming framework 0.4 release, will allow developers to utilize the power of WebGL combined with the DOM. Essentially this means using the right tool for the right render target. “Mixed Mode” is not the only news Famo.us has to share.
As we know from episode 17 of our podcast, Famo.us is always pushing the boundaries of imagination and what is possible. The 0.4 release will also have front end containers very similar to Flash but with editing capabilities. Famo.us Hub, a new service being released, Famo.us JQuery Wdgets, and so much more is almost at our developer fingertips.
Release 0.4 will be 25kb minified and provide an extremely versatile set of tools for us to use as developers. The biggest announcement though is quite simpler but very relevant….Famo.us is now MIT licensed!
