Spry 1.7 feature preview updates SpryData for basic xpath functionality
Looks like some action on the Adobe Spry Framework front and a preview of a change that the 1.7 release will bring. Better basic xpath support in the Spry Data sets are set in the preview that can allow users to avoid including xpath.js which can save ~72kb according to the post on the Spry Team's blog.
I'm looking forward to seeing what else might be included in the 1.7 release. I think that it would be good if the Spry team could post a roadmap for the Spry framework so that we can see what sort of widgets and functionality are being planned. This would allow people to be able to comment on what is proposed, as well as give Spry widget developers some ideas on what to avoid working on so as to prevent duplicate work.
