Update Your JavaScript Libraries

JavaScript libraries are a blessing to those of us that feel overwhelmed by the code. If you’ve used Prototype, Rico, Yahoo’s YUI libraries, or others in the past year, don’t neglect the versioning. These scripts get updated to fix bugs and add features.

I’m working on a project that had some annoying errors that were quickly fixed by simply upgrading to the most recent version of a YUI library object. Set yourself a reminder in Backpack or Thunderbird to check your sites every 4-6 months for updates, it’s an easy way to keep up to date.
