Release Notes
What’s New in 2.0.0?

   - Constraint-based priorities, supported by listeners, modelListeners,
   modelRelay, distributeOptions, contextAwareness, and components. This
   allows the specific order of those items to be configured. (See:
   - Context Awareness - and things it relies on:
   - Global Instantiator
      - Every Infusion component, regardless of how it is instantiated,
      ends up in a single-rooted tree of components
      - This enables use of modern IoC features such as model relay and
      declarative event binding
      - Enables use of the root distributeOptions context “/”
      - Enables the removal of “demands blocks”
      - Useful debugging tip: Watch fluid.globalInstantiator in your JS
      debugging tools to see the structure of your application and its tree.
   - fluid.notImplemented function for implementing abstract grades
   - Lazy loading for UI Options
   instructions for how to use the Preferences Framework with a zero
   initial load time
   - This should assist in improving performance when using the Preferences
   Framework, particularly for resource intensive sites and applications
   - Much faster invokers and boiled listeners (c. 60x faster)
   - Support for using Infusion with npm for both Node.js and web-based
   - Provides a variety of prebuilt versions of Infusion in the module’s
   dist directory.
   - Source Maps are generated for the concatenated JavaScript files
   - View oriented IoC debugging tools
   - Including FluidViewDebugging.js on the page of any Infusion
   application gives you access to the *IoC View Inspector*. Click on the
   small cogwheel icon at the bottom right of the page to open a panel which
   shows the details of the view components and their grades, that are
   attached to DOM nodes in the browser pane. This interface works similarly
   to the *DOM Inspector* familiar from modern web browsers, but is an
   experimental implementation with an engineer-level UI.
