Release notes

I'm very pleased to announce the release of DataTables 1.4.0. After a beta cycle of around one month, many new features and enhancements have been added to DataTables, plenty of bugs have been fixed, and edge use cases resolved.

Along side the release of DataTables 1.4.0, this new web-site has been created to help document DataTables initialisation parameters and API, and also to foster further development of this plug-in. A plug-ins section has been added, and every is encouraged to share their thoughts on the forums.

I hope you enjoy developing with DataTables 1.4.

DataTables 1.4.0 is identical to 1.4 beta 11 (except the name...), but here is a quick summary of what is new in the 1.4 series:

  • Non-destructive DOM interaction!
  • Ajax auto loading of data
  • Sorting column(s) highlighting
  • Type detection for dynamic data (and plugin support)
  • State saving
  • API plug-in mechanism
  • Speed - v1.4 is considerably faster for most common tasks
  • Improved documentation
