It has been a while since I have written anything about processing-js. This is not to say that nothing has been happening. In fact the processing team and I have been working hard for the past couple of months to land the 1.0 version release. In this release we focused not only on adding functionality but also documentation. We were getting a lot of comments about the lack of documentation so we wanted to ensure that this stops. After all everyone expects a 1.0 release to be stable and usable by everyone and not only experts. We have also spiced up the website! It now showcases a sketch on the homepage, a couple more exhibition examples, a fully updated reference page, and a better learning page. If you are curious about the features we added read the change-log.
You have your own processing sketches?
As I mentioned we are featuring a processing-js sketch on the home page. If you have a sketch that you want people to see, or if you have a project that should be on the exhibition page please let us know. How? You can always file a ticket on lighthouse, comment on this post, or tweet about it adding @annasob to get my attention.

We’re not done yet!
Just because the 1.0 is done does not mean that the project is complete. Our large community is always finding ways to optimize the code. For a look at whats coming in 1.1 release see the lighthouse milestone.
