[Version 2.0] Differences between 1.3 and 2.0

Apr 2, 2012 at 1:15 AM

Would anyone be able to tell me how different 1.3 and 2.0 (alpha) are? I'm looking to try out the alpha, and would like to get a rough idea of how much work the transition will be.

I'm no expert, however I believe it's quite different, as v2.0 has been completely rewritten to support binding (among many other features). It probably depends how you're using v1.3, using a wrapper like SOFA, or whether from an MVVM perspective, or not. There is a sample included in the v2 download, so it's likely worth having a look through. In v2 there's not currently such a nice visual style as previous versions, so you'll have to work on that yourself, though I did notice that there has been support added for theming quite recently. Again, I'm no expert, having not even used v1.3, and just answering from what I've seen on various forums.
