Differences to Mootools 1.1/1.2

Many old functions have been removed or renamed in Mootools 1.3. Thanks to the compatibility module they still work fine in Joomla 1.6, however a future version of Joomla is likely to remove the compatibility module. It is recommended to follow the Mootools' Upgrade from 1.2 to 1.3 guide to future proof your code.

Also new in Mootools 1.3 is, that the $() function is deprecated. Instead document.id() should be used. This will help when other JavaScript frameworks are mixed with Mootools code.

More information

You can find more information, examples and Mootools plug-ins on the Mootools Homepage.
