Update (Sep 18):
I posted more news. The compressor beats UglifyJS v1 now on
jQuery and on other libraries I tried. Also, the jQuery test suite is
fully covered after minification.
First, a big THANK YOU! to everybody who donated so far! I was silent
since I started the funding campaign, but my motto is “work, not
talk”. I've been hard at work actually and I'm happy to announce that UglifyJS v2 has got support
for generating source maps, a pretty exhaustive compressor (it beats v1 in
some of my tests) and a minimal CLI utility.
I humbly remind you that the pledgie is still open
and still far
from the target. If you like what I'm doing, please consider
contributing a few bucks!
UPDATE (Sep 07): Thanks to significant contributions from the jQuery Foundation
and the Dojo Foundation,
and from many individuals who heard the buzz, we are a lot closer to the
target! Thank you people!
Update (Sep 11): Telerik matched
the donations from jQuery and Dojo, providing more than enough to complete
the campaign target! Thank you
guys! I've been working on it, I'll post some updates and new code soon!
What follows is old news.
Next, some information about the current state of affairs.
