GreenSock Animation Platform (GSAP) v12

Mr Jack “Green Sock” Doyle has just released version 12 of his GreenSock Animation Platform (GSAP) for Flash AS2 and AS3, but the big announcement is that it now supports JavaScript too!

This is awesome news, and the API for JavaScript is the same as we have been using all these years for Flash projects. Plus the performance is amazing! I’ve just quickly run a few tests on my computer and it is way faster than jQuery, YUI 3, MooTools and Zepto. Try running the speed test yourself to see just how fast it is. I’ll post some speed test figures here soon.

Jack has managed to include TweenLite, TweenMax, TimelineLite, and TimelineMax in to the JavaScript version, plus there is also a new CSSPlugin that enables css-related animations.

There have also been some other general improvements, changes and optimisations throughout the platform.

Great work Jack. If you use this library in your work why not help Jack to continue working on it by becoming a Club GreenSock member?
