This post is about one of the most important goals of SproutCore, making web
app development easier and faster. SproutCore has always been largely about
really fast app performance, but in many ways the performance benchmarks of a
framework are only as good as the real world performance of the developers
using that framework. Therefore, we wanted to highlight a number of recent
additions to SproutCore purely for the purpose of helping developers create
even faster SproutCore applications even faster.
For instance, one of the least publicized changes in version 1.10 is the
large number of additional debugging statements in order to help guide
developers to the source of any problems. These range from general warnings,
prefixed with “Developer Warning:”, that should be fixed before

we’re headed onto Tumblr because, well, its just much nicer.
Google adds SVG compatibility to IE:
With this library, we finally have a generalized way to write vector graphics
across all browsers. Now we just need to make this code easier to generate.
Next step: extend SC.RenderContext in SproutCore with methods to emit
standard SVG code. This way you can easily write vector graphics in any
view without having to learn SVG.
