Changelog: Nov 13, 2015

imgix.js v2.0.0

  • Removed all parameter-specific getters and setters from the imgix.URL object (i.e. imgix.URL.getSepia(), imgix.URL.setWidth(), et cetera). This drastically reduces the library's footprint and future-proofs it by ensuring that the list of allowed parameters cannot get out of sync with our API.
  • See the release log on GitHub for a complete list of changes.

New Swift Library

  • Added a new Swift library to the imgix libraries page. This library is called Iris and was created by the team at Hodinkee. It offers simple integration into Swift-based iOS, tvOS, and OS X projects. It can be installed using Carthage.

Documentation Updates

  • Fixed a few links in the fit=facearea documentation.
  • Released a new blend mode, normal . This allows you to overlay one image onto another, similar to the mark parameter.

November Meetup

  • We’re hosting a meetup for current and future imgix customers in San Francisco on November 17. Come by and have a drink on us. We hope you can make it!
