Can you pl let us know what were the changes made. It'll help us to look into the issue If you could share with us your animate files.
Regarding upgrade, You can definitely work with new animate as there is no risk of losing your old content. Whenever upgrade happens, the old copy is kept intact and an upgraded composition is created with new runtime, which offers lot of advantages.
thanks. I am glad it is safe !
I ve just open a myfile.html made with edge 2014 with the new update. Made a minor change then published it with the new version and uploaded it. The page became a white page.
I had some jquery animation on it. Maybe that is the reason it didn't work ? It seems I do have to load jquery manually.
What I will do is upgrade all my project and see what it happens.
In EA MAX release the runtime does not have dependency on jquery any more. Runtime out of the box supports a set of jquery apis. You can check on this link to get details on what apis are available.
If you are only using these set of apis supported out of the box they do not need to use jquery. If you are using something outside given set of apis supported by runtime then you have to add dependency on jquery. Are you facing any issues in adding the jquery as a dependency. Can you share a sample which repro's the issue you are facing?
I guess I'll always need to add the external jQuery dependency from now on then, as there are some major omissions from that subset that I use all the time, and I quite like having other options as well - unless they get added of course. Maybe we should start a separate thread for a wish list of jQuery APIs to include?
For what its worth, I'd like to include:
on / off
offset (get AND set)
toggleClass (not essential but it saves a couple of lines)
Or maybe we could even be given the option to dynamically add to the list for each project? (Like I said, it's a wish list!)
I would like to say that I and others have had major problems since this upgrade.
Seemingly random JS errors are happening, rendering project files useless because AE will not open them anymore.
Never had these issues before.
The new version has major bugs.
Actually, sorry to say this, but I've never used a more bug-ridden software than AE.
Sorry to hear that you are facing issues with upgrades.
Can you give details on what are the JS errors that you are getting? It will be great if you can share the project files. If we can repro it on our side we will be able to give you necessary guidance.
